I plan on getting revision by the end of the year which includes a capsulectomy (removing the capsule), implanting strattice, and replacing implant with a new one. I am dying to find others who had had this type of procedure done with the strattice as I... READ MORE

Part 2: Capsular Contracture at 4 Months Post Op- Houston, TX

You can read Part 1 of my journey here. Hello Ladies! It's been almost 3 weeks since I started my ultrasound appointments. The therapy is done for 10 minutes at 2.0 (Kwh?), although yesterday she did it at 2.5. My hubby and I are thinking that it has softened the CC boob up some. We are gauging by feel and also when I lay flat on the floor it no longer feels like such a big ball... READ MORE

Hello Ladies! Well sad to say that I am only 5 months post op of getting my BA done.

I had Cc and had strattice inserted. I noticed that one is a little lower than the other. I think it's because the other has a capsule around the implant but the one with strattice does not. More importantly, it's been a while since my... READ COMMENT

It's May 17, 2015- I am still doing good and a recurrence has not happened. If you have had revisions for CC, please, please consider Strattice or Alloderm! But make sure your doc has previous experience doing it. They should be placing... READ COMMENT

Pipsqueak- I wish you luck on your revision surgery and that your CC doesn't come back either. But if it does, then IMHO strattice or alloderm is your only chance. For some people the replacement your doc is planning is enough. We'll... READ COMMENT
