Great question! Any time a foreign object is implanted in the body, the body responds by forming a wall of scar tissue around it called a capsule. In some cases over time the capsule may tighten around the implant and thicken, making the implant feel firm or even hard. In advanced stages the contracted capsule can even distort the shape and position of a breast implant. Some patients have had some softening of their capsule(s) by using the medication Singular, which may aid in some relief. The mainstay of treatment for capsular contracture remains surgical intervention, which is typically not covered by your insurance. I suggest making an appointment with your surgeon to discuss all treatment options. Good luck!
