Hard Spot on Breast after Augmentation
Thank you for your inquiry about healing after breast augmentation.
You recently had your surgery and it is too early for a capsular contraction. However, if you are having serious
concerns you should contact your plastic surgeon's office for advice. Best
3 weeks post BA, hard spot under right breast = capsular contracture?
It's difficult to tell from your photos, but 3 weeks is too early for a capsular contracture. It would also affect the whole implant, not just an isolated spot. You will need to see your surgeon for a physical exam to find out what's going on.
I agree with the other docs it is likely a fluid or blood collection or the implant itself, would be early for a cap con unless you had a bleed or an infection
Hard spot beneath the breast three weeks after breast augmentation
It is impossible to diagnose the hard spot without a direct physical examination. I agree that 3 weeks is too early for a capsular contraction to be forming. Typically breast implant does not feel hard. There may be a small hematoma or a deep suture. Next graft please see her plastic surgeon for an examination and diagnosis.
Photos are a bit dark and blurry, but the results look reasonably even at this stage..
3 weeks would be too early to see finding of capsular contracture. At any rate, the entire implant would feel firm, not just a single area.
Only an examination will be able to sort out what you are describing, so a call to your surgeon is in order.
All the best.
