Reducing the Risk of Capsular Contracture

Published on June 22, 2017

Capsular contracture is a potential complication that can occur after breast augmentation surgery. In the time after the procedure, scar tissue forms into a capsule that surrounds the implant. In some cases, these capsules are thicker than necessary, which can cause them to contract, squeezing the implant. If the issue is severe, the implant may take on a distorted appearance.

In order to reduce the risk of capsular contracture, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. John Zannis utilizes the most advanced techniques and methods available. The most important thing is keeping the implant and the implant site sterile.

To accomplish this, Dr. Zannis triple-washes the implant in an antibiotic solution and makes sure that nothing but his sterile gloves come into contact with the implant. He also maintains a blood-free implant location so that he has a full view of the area during the procedure.
