What Is Capsular Contracture Treated?
  • Surgery to remove or separate the hard, fibrous
    tissue.
  • Breaking up the fibrous tissue, without surgery,

    been found to be helpful in capsular contracture.
  • Ultrasound that helps to soften the capsule with
    soundwaves.

What You Can Do To Reduce Your Risk
  • Avoid the development of encapsulation around the
    implant.
  • Evidence indicates the sub-muscular placement of
    the implant, instead of sub-glandular placement.
  • Choosing the right size implant can help to avoid
    this condition.
  • Getting sufficient rest after implant surgery can
    help to reduce the risk of contracture.
  • Ensure that your surgeon is a board-certified
    breast augmentation specialist.
