a lift alone should not be associated with what we plastic surgeons term a capsular contracture. but a lift where an implant is being used can develop a capsular contracture.

Can You Get Capsular Contracture when Do Breast Lift?
A breast lift should not result in capsular contracture. Find a plastic surgeon with ELITE credentials who performs hundreds of breast lifts each year. Then look at the plastic surgeon's website before and after photo galleries to get a sense of who can deliver the results.

Can You Get Capsular Contraction when getting a Breast Lift?
A breast lift is no different than a regular breast augmentation. It is possible to develop capsular contracture, like it is in a breast augmentation procedure.

A capsular contracture will only occur in the setting of a breast implant. So to answer your question, in a breast lift procedure alone, this will not occur.

Capsular contracture with breast lift?
A capsular contracture is the body's reaction to a foreign body such as a breast implant. You therefore cannot get a capsular contracture after undergoing just a breast lift. Best of luck, Christopher Davidson, M.D.
Capsular contracture is a rare process of scar tissue formation associated with breast implants. If you are having a breast lift only, this will not be an issue.
