Tight pulling skin under my incision after my breast enlargement?

Congratulations on you decision to have Breast Augmentation. What you are describing is not that uncommon. It sounds like a "cord" in the lower part of the breast near the fold. We call it a cord because that is what it feels like when you stretch the skin by raising your arms. A cord will disappear without treatment, however gentle massage tends to be beneficial. It is difficult to be sure without examining you, so you should return to your doctor for a complete evaluation.
Good Luck, Beverly Friedlander, MD
