When is the ideal time post Breast Augmentation to have a Capsulorrhaphy and can existing Periareolar Incision be used?

Ideal time for capsulorrhaphy after augmentation?
The same implants can certainly be used if you're otherwise happy with shape and size. As for the incision, I find it significantly easier to approach the capsulorrhaphy from the periareolar approach, and there is no reason to give you another scar.
How long to wait before capsulorrhaphy?
This is because the internal tissue inside your breast is still slightly raw and fresh scar tissue and it’s best to leave this area to fully heal prior to considering surgery.
I hope this information is useful and wish you the best of luck if you do decide to go ahead with surgery.
Implants are too low
