Standard Practice to Remove the Capsule for Capsular Contracture During Revision Surgery?
I've had a 2nd opinion that at least 1 of my implants is CC'ing. I'm due for rev. sx for a lift & was told the capsules need to come out if they are. I'm on Singulair, take Vit. E & massage. My surgeon says he never removes the capsule even if it's CC'd. He just opens it by splitting it in 1/2 before inserting new implants. He said it's very bloody & unnecessary to remove it. Is it standard procedure to leave the cc'd capsule in or take it out? I have under the muscle, smooth, silicone implants.
