Capsulotomy details?

Hello Dr. Revis!
I am just over 4 months post op, and despite my and my surgeon's best efforts, my right breast has had a very tough time dropping. I do *not* seem to exhibit the signs of capsular contracture, and my surgeon agrees with that; the breast is continuing to soften and isn't moving up, it just isn't dropping.
My surgeon mentioned that in rare cases (most likely in mine) at around the 6 month mark he can go in and "surgically drop" the breast - I believe this is a capsulotomy? I just wanted to know your thoughts on this procedure and if you had any other suggestions. I very much appreciate it!
*note - the picture attached is from about 4 weeks ago, but not much has changed since then.

Good morning!

All of that sounds perfectly normal- its just a little tricky getting it to drop enough, but not too much. Sounds like your PS has a very reasonable plan!
