Capsular Contracture – Breast Augmentation Revision Surgery New Bern

Published on April 13, 2016

After breast implants are placed during breast augmentation, the body slowly forms a shell of scar tissue around them as part of the healing process. This shell – the capsule – should be thin. When it is thicker than normal, it may constrict the tissues in the region and cause problems. This is called capsular contracture.

When a woman is experiencing capsular contracture, the affected breast or breasts may hurt, feel stiff, and have a warped appearance.

With breast augmentation revision surgery, we can correct this issue. We often have the option of either removing the thick, constricting scar-tissue capsule or strategically altering it.
