Scar tissue or capsule formation helps
In breast augmentation I have chosen to spend time reviewing photographs with patients to fully understand their expectation of size and shape. Many times this simply raises more questions. I will make measurements and use the implant guides to allow the patient to understand exactly the sizes that are reasonable for their body type and measurements.
Please find an experienced Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and member of the Aesthetic Society using the Smart Beauty Guide. These Plastic Surgeons can guide you on all aspects of facial surgery, breast augmentation and body procedures including tummy tucks or mommy makeovers!

I agree with your Plastic Surgeons belief that over time the scar tissue that is laid down around dissolving stitches is strong enough to resist day to day deforming forces.
Whether the forces imposed by your breast implants will be resisted by this scar tissue is a call only your PS can make.
hope this helps
