Is it dangerous to have a constricted breast after surgery?

I had surgery almost a year ago. The left breast never healed properly. The areola is indented and the shape of it is narrower than the right breast. I'm nervous about having another surgery. Is it dangerous to leave it as is?

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.
