Capsular contracture?

It sounds like you had a capsular contracture. Muscle animation deformities may have occurred with the implant under the muscle.

   Your muscle should not have been affected during the breast augmentation as far as its ability to contract.  Once the capsule is removed, you should feel less tight and hard.

It is not the muscle that is contracting but the capsule of scar around the implant.  Revision surgery is an option and would be reasonable.   There is no women in the world who has identical breast, there is always slight variations.  The surgeon will try their best to make you as even as possible I am sure.
