Capsulectomy Without Removal of Breast Implants

Posted On: December 07, 2015 Author: Dr. Stuart Linder Posted In: Breast Revision, Breast topics

before and after Capsulectomy Without Removal of Breast ImplantsThe female patient presented is 35 years of age and requested to have a breast revision. During the examination, I confirmed that she had capsular contracture (scar tissue)  around the implants. Since the patient had her breast implants for fewer than two years, we agreed to perform a capsulectomy, which I removed the scar tissue around the implant and circumferential release, allowing the capsule more space and volume for the implant.

As you can see by the post op photo, she now has a nice natural look. I did not have to remove her breast implants to achieve the success of this surgery. Six weeks out, she is very pleased with her results.
