Breast Implant Revision Required After Latent Capsular Contraction - Use Strattice or Move Under the Muscle? (photo)
I have 7 yr old Silimed silicone implants over the muscle. My left breast began slowly encapsulating 2+ years post-op. The contracture is not painful, but is not pleasing to look at or feel. I have had two pregnancies since the contracture started. Due to my shape & symmetry, my original surgeon placed implants over the muscle - I am thin, 5'6", 125lbs. I have had two consults on my revision: 1. Move to under the muscle, 2. Stay over the muscle & add Strattice. Which approach is better?
