Capsulectomy

A capsulectomy is the removal of the scar tissue (capsule) that forms around an implant. A capsule is an entirely normal response to any foreign body. However, in some instances, the scar (capsule) around the implant may thicken and contract (capsular contracture). As a result, the breasts may feel much harder. With worsening capsular contracture, the shape may become significantly distorted and the breast can become painful or uncomfortable. Performing a capsulectomy and replacement of the breast implants should alleviate the discomfort and improve the appearance and feel of the breasts.
