Is it dangerous to have a constricted breast after surgery?
I do not believe you have a constricted breast, you have scars and scar contractures. They are not dangerous. My advice is that you see your doctor for a proper diagnosis and recommendation.
No, it is OK and not dangerous to leave it just as it is. If you desire revision in the future, contact one of the many members of the ASAPS.

A constricted breast scar a year after breast augmentation surgery is not dangerous if the breast is not red, hot or inflamed. Most likely you have a scar contraction. I suggest you visit your plastic surgeon for an examination and diagnosis. Revision may be possible.
