Answer from Dr. LoVerme:
You should see a plastic surgeon for an evaluation. From your description, it seems that you have a late capsular contracture or a ruptured implant. An MRI may be necessary. You should not delay making an appointment

Answer from Dr. Sheila Bond’s Office:
Thanks for your interest in Dr. Bond. Unfortunately, she can’t comment on your situation without examining you It really would be best to contact the doctor who performed the surgery in case a revision is required. I would be happy to answer all of your questions if you call me any day in the office.
