Capsular contracture occurs when the body forms scar tissue around the implant, often referred to as a “capsule”. This occurs after breast augmentation surgery in approximately 5% of people.
Unfortunately there is no telling whether you will suffer capsular contracture prior to your surgery as it occurs as a result of the body’s natural response to the implant.
The resultant capsule can thicken and shrink making the implant firm and hard and in some cases painful. The shape of the breast may also distort as the implant is being compressed, typically becoming rounded.
