Have you noticed an unusual, misshapen look to your breasts following breast augmentation surgery? This may be an indicator of capsular contracture. If you’re experiencing this or another issue with your breasts, revision breast surgery can be a highly effective solution.
Along with the unusual look, breasts experiencing capsular contracture may feel painful and possibly stiff. The reason for this has to do with scar tissue. With capsular contracture, the scar tissue of the capsule – a shell of scar tissue that the body normally creates around a breast implant – is too thick.
To fix capsular contracture during revision breast surgery, your plastic surgeon may perform alterations on the scar tissue capsule, or it may be taken out completely.
