Breast that looks incapsulated
About Capsular Contracture
Those experiencing this are candidates for Breast #Revision Surgery. An implant revision or exchange intends to replace the damaged #implants with new silicone or saline filled implants with newer technology. Secondary breast surgery can be #complex and needs to be done by an experienced plastic surgeon. The specific procedure to be performed will depend on the complications experienced and the condition of the implants.

Breast capsular contracture
It is difficult to make an exact diagnosis of capsular contracture without a physical examination. Contracture is usually associated with an increased firmness or "hardness" of the involved breast. This usually does not involve pain or discomfort, but can with more severe contracture. Often the implant will sit a bit higher than the uninvolved side, evidenced by more superior fullness. This may create the impression of a lower appearing nipple and/ or a more sagging appearance of the lower breast contour, which your photo appears to suggest. Hope this is helpful and best wishes.
If you have new discomfort or concerning breast changes, nothing substitutes and in-person exam with your Plastic Surgeon to determine the cause.
All the best
