Do I have stage 3 CC?

Breast Implant Capsular Contracture
Thanks for your question. The "staging" for capsular contracture is not a very strict grading, and it doesn't really mean much if you have stage 2 vs stage 3. It is only useful as a guide, so if you don't have any major concerns, you don't need to worry or have surgery. If you are getting pain and distortion, however, then maybe you do. You should see a local plastic surgeon for an examination and advice, with a referral from your GP.
