The car accident may have caused the pain you are experiencing. This could be caused by several factors, such as hematoma, or a tear in the implant itself.
Thanks for your question -You should be evaluated.Change in shape after breast augmentation and trauma can be one of several things -
Hematoma (a collection of blood around the implant or soft tissue)
Tear in the implant capsule
Rupture of the implantIt could also be things that will get better on their own like muscle swelling -An evaluation is key.
It is obviously difficult to be specific without seeing you in person but you certainly possible for breadth implants to be damaged in a road traffic accident. I would suggest you return to see your original surgeon who will be able to explain potential investigations. Failing that, try and find a reputable surgeon in your area who can advise you.
