Hi Charly Brown,

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
