Capsular Contracture After Breast Implants Treatment
While complications after breast implant surgery are not common, they do occur. One such condition is known as capsular contracture. After breast implant surgery, your body forms a capsule of scar tissue around the implant. This is your body’s normal reaction to a foreign body being introduced into the body and is a part of the healing process.
Capsular contracture is when this scar tissue becomes unusually hard and begins to contract around the implant. This can cause pain in some instances, as well as affect the appearance of your breast and implant. Most cases of capsular contracture occur within two years of receiving your implants, and there are some indications that genetics are involved.

Treatment for Problems After Breast Implant Surgery in Reno/Tahoe
Dr. Dayan has several options for helping capsular contracture after breast implant treatment. One method is a capsulectomy. This is simply removing the scar tissue that has formed around your breast implant. Another method is a capsulotomy, where the tissue capsule is cut open around the implant to provide more room for the implant to move around. A third treatment is autologous reconstruction, which involves removing the implant and reconstructing the breast with tissue from another area of the body.
When you meet with Dr. Dayan for a consultation at Avance Plastic Surgery Institute, he will perform a physical exam and possible x-rays, as well as review your medical condition. He will also explain more about each corrective procedure and recommend the best treatment for your specific case. You will always receive a tailored treatment plan that accommodates your desires and goals.
