If I'm presenting capsular contracture on both of my breasts, how serious is that? Should I have them fixed or changed? (Photo)

Concerned about Capsular Contracture
Capsular contracture is not a health problem.
Droopy breasts 8 years after implants
- I am sorry you are unhappy with your result.
- You have fairly large implants -
- Like large breasts, large implants can make breasts droop, just by their weight.
- If you have a capsular contracture, repair is not necessary - it depends on how much pain if any you have, how much the shape bothers you and if ti deforms your breasts.
- One can't tell from your photo if you have a contracture and if so, it would not be severe because the breast shape and position is normal.
- An examination is needed to recommend what surgery might help you, but smaller implants would be part of the recommendation if you do not want implants to droop again.
Always consult a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.

Discerning the real issue
These are critical questions to answer for yourself before you ask anyone to revise your breasts.
You have large and heavy implants and breast descent is accelerated and to be expected. Important questions to consider are : are you happy with the feel and size of your breasts? - if so, likely just a breast lift could help lift and contour your breast. If you find your breast size too large..consider moving down in size and combining this with a lift.
Breast revision surgery requires that you work closely with a plastic surgeon you trust. They can help you in the decision making process. But first get clear on what you dislike with your current situation.
