I was diagnosed with CC (capsular contracture) on my left side at 4 months post op and I am now 1 year and 2 months post op. I plan on getting revision by the end of the year which includes a capsulectomy (removing the capsule), implanting strattice, and replacing implant with a new one. I am dying to find others who had had this type of procedure done with the strattice as I would love to hear how their experience has gone and if the strattice has been successful in preventing CC from recurring. If you can share your experience with me I would really appreciate it, or even if you have another technique or treatment that was used, I would love to hear that as well. Thanks in advance!
trying to decide when....
I forgot I had this review too. =) I am looking at doing my revision over Christmas of this year or next. I am leaning towards now as my doc prices are about to go up so my orig. Quote won't be any good after the new year. I will likely have my decision made this Monday or so.
Surgery is scheduled!
The time has finally come! I have finally scheduled my CC surgery for March 27th. I will get a pic posted over the next week or so before surgery. I am at 1 year 10 months with CC on my left side. Surgery will include removal of capsule, antibiotic wash, new implant, strattice implantation, with drains for 1 week. My understanding is that surgery will be 2 hours for 1 breast due to capsule removal. Initial implantation of both sides took 1 hour. Dr. Vitenas and office manager Cherie have been awesome in working with me trying to coordinate this. I couldn't be more grateful for their efforts and patience. =)
