11 months post op one revision surgery on left breast right breast now rock solid. Had second opinion from another surgeon as I'm not getting anywhere with mine. He said my revision had bottomed out ? And that the right was likely to be cc. Gp referred me to breast clinic where they have done ultrasound they said there is no rupture and no cc. And therefore implant must be causing the problem and is likely to be faulty. Is this possible ?

Thank you for your question. A capsular contracture is determined by physical exam and not by ultrasound. The integrity of the implant can be seen on Ultrasound depending on the experience of the radiologist. If you are having problems I recommend a follow up with your plastic surgeon or a second opinion with a board certified plastic surgeon in your area. Best of luck with your recovery.
