torn muscle?

I had breast implant 2 years ago. the first surgeon had torn muscle medial of right breast, the result was close to symmastia. Then went to another doctor who placed smaller implant above the muscle. The result was great but 6 months later i had capsule contraction in both implant. The same doctor removed the implant and place them under the muscle. the result was not even as the right breast looked deformed and bigger than left.
Finally I got tired and went to the third surgeon to remove the implant. But the result was not even. the right still looked deformed.
My question: could the reason be the torn muscle? or could be an internal incision on the top of muscle that the last surgeon could not locate?

I would recommend stem cell fat augmentation to try to achieve as much symmetry as possible while giving a more natural look and feel. It is unlikely that perfection will be achievable (more)

Though you are early after the surgery, the deformity in the right breast will probably persist. It is possible that the muscle was released too much causing the skin to stick to the chest (more)
