What is Capsular Contracture?

Capsular contracture develops when internal scar tissue forms a tight or constricting capsule around a breast implant, contracting it until it becomes misshapen, hard, and painful. It can be caused by things such as excess bleeding, infection, or lack of post-operative implant massages.

Time for Revision Breast Surgery

In general, it is better to have a revision surgery from 6 months up to 1 year later after the first surgery – when the shape and breast tissues are settled in.

The implant can be ruptured or deformed depending on individuals, and the surgery might have to be done earlier.

Time for a revision surgery must be applied differently depending on the conditions, and it is recommended to have enough consultation with a doctor specialized in breast plastic surgery.
