Drainage post removal
If this does not resolve then your surgeon may have to go back and remove the capsules.I'm not sure what capsulitis is other than a term to describe inflammation of the capsules.Go back to your surgeon and discuss this with him.
According to the peer reviewed literature in plastic surgery, total capsulectomy is needed in order to avoid complications. Drains are needed as well fo 5 to 7 days. You need surgery for this seroma reforming within the capsule. Capsulitis is infection in the capsule which requires antibiotics and surgery as well.
explant surgery, it is almost always best to remove the capsule in its
entirety. This will allow the space to heal. If you leave the
capsule in place, it does not heal. Fluid can accumulate in the space.
The situation that brings the patient to implant removal will have an
affect on the decision. This is a surgery which requires discussion with
the plastic surgeon about the problem, the goals, and the technical concerns.
The body does not re-absorb the capsule. Revision surgery requires
drains because the fluid is going to be generated when you operate on the scar
capsule. If you provide a mechanism for the fluid to be removed (i.e.
drains), the risks are lower. If the fluid accumulates because there were
no drains, it will most certainly cause problems in the future. Capsulitis just means inflammation of the capsule. I am sure there will be nothing written about this since it is somewhat meaningless. "itis" is attached to anything that is inflamed. It is nonspecific. It is not possible to tell if the capsule is inflamed or infected with removing it and testing for bacteria. Either way, the capsule needs to be removed.
