Capsular contracture is more likely to happen if you have a history of capsular contracture. But, most things done to prevent it are out of your control. The implant placement and incision and well as technique intraoperatively appear to impact capsular contracture rate. Though, it is a known process that cannot be completely avoided unfortunately.
