A capsulectomy surgically removes scar tissue, called capsular contracture, that forms around surgical implants.
About Breast Capsulectomy in Scottsdale AZ & Gilbert AZ
About ten percent of breast implant patients show signs of capsular contracture. They may experience pain as scar tissue tightens around the breast and the breast itself may harden. It will also look and certainly feel different.
Surgeons haven’t yet found how to fix a capsular contracture other than removing part or all of it. In a total breast capsulectomy, the entire scar structure around the implant is removed. More commonly, surgeons perform a partial capsulectomy to remove only the front (anterior) section of the capsular contracture. Periprosthetic capsulectomy refers to the total procedure and placing new implants.
