Does capsular contracture cause severe acne breakouts?
Doctor Answers 3
No known link between CC and acne.
While the cause of capsular contracture is likely multifactor, some of the best evidence to date points strongly to bacterial contamination of the implants in the form of a biofilm. However, the connection between this and acne has never been made that I know of. Your dermatologist is the best person to see about the acne. With a Grade 4 capsular contracture, you are making the correct decision about removing your implants.
A capsular contracture should not have any effect on acne. Best to seek care for your acne separately with a dermatologist.

I am not aware of any correlation between acne and breast implants. If your have severe contracture, I am glad you are getting the implants removed. Best wishes.
