An in-person exam with a board-certified plastic surgeon is the best way to assess your needs and provide true medical advice.
Because you have a new change in your breasts at a time remote from your implant placement surgery you should be seen and evaluated by a board certified plastic surgeon to rule out suspicion of implant rupture, infection or other implant related issues. Your surgeon will be able to examine you and discuss potential causes for your observation and how to investigate and address them.
Best of luck.

Noise Around Implants
Hearing sounds as the implant settles soon after surgery is pretty common, but not as common farther out from surgery as the tissue pocket has matured. Have you noticed any increased swelling or pain? I would contact your doctor for an evaluation and how to proceed (thinking it's likely not anything to be concerned about though, unless you are actually having more swelling/pain/redness). Best of luck!
Noise around your breast implant
Experiencing the sensation of noise around your implant a year later is uncommon, but not particularly worrisome. As long as you are not having other symptoms like swelling redness or pain, I recommend you see your surgeon non-emergently after the holiday. Most often these issues resolve spontaneously without treatment. Best wishes.
