What Are the Chances of Getting Capsular Contracture Again?
I have had my implants in for a little under 3 years. I have saline and got them done through my belly button. I have capsular contracture in my left implant. I went back to my plastic surgeon 6 months after surgery with my concern. He told me it was a mild case and there was nothing I could do. He said I could still get it again in a future operation. Is it harder to get capsular contracture with a different type of surgery? And what is my chance/percentage of getting it again?
