What is capsular contracture?

The formation of a "capsule" of scar tissue around any implant (medical or cosmetic) is a natural part of the healing process. The body automatically reacts to any foreign object it detects inside and tries to isolate the scar tissue by creating a barrier around it. In the case of a breast prosthesis, this is usually a good thing - the capsule helps hold the breast prosthesis in place and prevents it from slipping. However, in some patients, the capsule abnormally hardens from the scar tissue and begins to contract around the implant. This can lead to cosmetic problems and in severe cases chest pain. Research shows that one in six breast augmentation patients experiences some degree of capsular contraction, although not all cases show obvious symptoms. Capsule contraction intensity is rated using a grading system :

In general, capsular contraction occurs during the healing process. About 75% of all capsular contractions occur within two years of implantation. Capsule contractions sometimes occur years after breast augmentation surgery, but this is an exception to the rule. If this happens, the patient's breast implant should be examined for rupture. Implant rupture is the most common cause of late capsular contraction .

Who is at risk for capsule contraction?

Patients who have received radiation therapy in the past or after an initial breast implant are at high risk for developing capsular contraction. However, some other factors that may increase the risk of capsule contraction include rupture of the implant, hematoma, infection of the implant, and genetic predisposition to scarring .

Symptoms of Capsular Contracture

When breast implants are placed, the body recognizes them as a foreign body. As a natural protective response, the body forms a layer of scar tissue around the implants. This layer of scar tissue is completely normal and its presence alone does not cause any complications for the patient. Unfortunately, in a small number of cases, the scar tissue around the breast implant shrinks. This condition is known as capsular contraction.
Capsule contraction usually occurs within a few months of initial breast implant surgery. However, capsule contraction can occur at any time, even years after breast augmentation. For this reason, it is important for patients to diagnose the symptoms of capsule contraction so that they can seek treatment in a timely manner
The most common symptoms of capsular contracture include the following:
