Capsular contracture

Capsular contractures generally begin as a firm implant, then as a displaced implant, and then as a painful breast. Best to follow-up with your plastic surgeon.

Capsular contracture what are the signs

Tynie,

The signs of capsular contracture are classically firmness and hardening, followed by distortion of the breast, and then pain.

It is possible to have a capsular contracture and a normal ultrasound and the key is examination by a Plastic Surgeon and then monitoring for progression.

You should visit the surgeon who performed the procedure for an opinion and peace of mind

All the best
