Our expert says:
It is called 'capsular contracture'.
These questions are all you should ask your plastic surgeon, as he did the procedure. However, all plastic surgeons would recommend that you wait for up to six months before a final opinion can be given regarding the outcome of the procedure. It takes that long to settle down.
I would suggest that you ask your plastic surgeon to refer you to someone else for a second opinion at this stage.
What you are experiencing is not necessarily capsular contracture - it is early for that, and massage might well assist in resolving the issue. Please discuss this option with your plastic surgeon as well.
