Recurrent Capsular Contracture
Capsular contracture is not fully understood even today. The risks are variable. It is difficult too predict what your future risk would be. Prevention can best be carried out with massage which can be instructed by your surgeon. Hope this helps.Dr. Ali Mosharrafa
Aggressive massaging of the right breast can help keep the capsule softer. Also, there are some drugs that have been used successfully to help correct capsular contracture. Talk with your surgeon to see if he/she has any experience with such drugs and if he/she would recommend them. In the meantime, make sure you are massaging the implant at least 3 times a day for at least 5 minutes each time. All the best,Dr. BlaggAustin, TX

There probably are not a lot of measures you can personally take. Capsular contracture is likely related to bacteria. If it doesn't bother you, then you should just leave it alone.
