Abscessed Present in Implant After Capsular Contracture, Should I Remove Implant?
Capsular contracture, 4 mos after surgery. PS advised addressing it surgically when I was ready. After a year, I scheduled surgery, and I woke to learn that an abscess was present. (Drain, antibiotics...implant removed, capsule left in) Its been 3 1/2 mos, and the capsule is round, baseball size and hard still, and seems to be affixed to my chest wall. Under the circumstances... should it not have also been removed? Is it possible that something is still festering in the capsule?
