Capsular Contracture Surgery
There is a chance that the body may react to a breast implant or reconstruction and form a capsule around the implant. When this happens, it is called capsular contracture. This scar tissue can get hard and cause the breast or breasts to be painful.
Sometimes this happens after many years or it can happen relatively soon after breast implant surgery. There are different options to consider: remove the capsule and breast implant completely or remove the capsule and replace the breast implant. Dr. Feledy is an expert at capsular contracture treatment and can help you make the best decision.
‘After 15 years of having breast implants, I developed capsular contracture and the implants became hard and painful. After learning how to address it, Dr Feledy helped me remove the implants and replace them with new ones in such a way that will help me avoid the chances of it recurring.’ – R.S.*
