Capsular Contracture Treatment in Pasadena, CA

No matter how skilled the surgeon, sometimes issues with a breast capsule can develop after implant-based augmentation. The healing process is completely unique to every individual, and while some women may create soft, pliable capsules (scar shell around the implant), other women may develop capsules that harden and thicken over time. When this happens, the capsule can contract around the implant changing the shape and creating mild to severe discomfort.

The formation of a capsule is entirely normal and is the body’s way of walling off and enclosing what it perceives as a foreign object. This capsule serves a positive purpose and can help keep the implant in place. On some occasions though, the capsule becomes rigid and constricting and requires partial or full removal. Treatment can include replacing breast implants and making repairs to the capsule or removing the capsule entirely to allow the body to form a new one. For particularly complex or revision cases, a biologic mesh may be needed to even further reduce the risk of contracture recurrence.

Dr Nima is a breast expert who has treated women with breast cancer, capsular contracture, breast implant illness, and botched breast surgery, who will thoroughly review your options to give you the best chance of success.
