Correction of Capsule Contracture

The case studies below are examples of women who underwent breast augmentation surgery and subsequently developed capsular contracture resulting in superior displacement of their implants and a hard feel to the breasts with severely distorted contours. They subsequently underwent correction of the problem by surgical removal of the scar tissue capsule that surrounded the implants and replacement with new implants.
