What is capsular contracture?

Capsular contracture is one of the uncommon complications following breast augmentation.  The body will form a fibrous capsule (or a scar) around the implant. This is a normal healing process. In some women, however, a thicker scar can be formed. The thicker scar around the breast implant can squeez the implant causing it to feel hard and look deformed. Milder forms of capsular contracture following breast enlargement do not require treatment, whereas more severe forms require a revisional surgery. Early capsular stretching exercises may help reduce the incidence of capsular  constracture.  Many plastic surgeons will teach the patient how to massage the breast implants starting on day 4-6 after surgery.
