Pain under breast 3 weeks post op and it's hard to touch.
This is something that can be seen if you raise your arms and see a cord-like structure beneath the skin below your incisions on one or both sides, and the cord (the thrombosed vein) is tender to touch as well.
One side being harder than the other may be a sign of concern, or it may simply represent the side you sleep on, and that darn gravity effect again!
I do not see anything here to make me worry, but you should always see what your surgeon thinks! Best wishes! Dr. Tholen

Pain After Breast Augmentation
Congratulations on your breast augmentation! What you are experiencing is not uncommon. From the pictures, it does not appear that anything is amiss (hematoma, for example). However, if you do have concerns, it's always best to contact your plastic surgeon to discuss the issue. They may want to examine you, and can make changes to your garment or medications to make you feel more comfortable.
Best of luck!
