Capsular Contracture Repair Surgery

Capsular Contracture Repair Surgery

Are you looking to get a capsular contracture repair surgery in Fort Lauderdale?

Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most sought-after ways to gain more confidence by changing the shape, size, or fullness of the breasts. One of the ways implants adhere and remain in place is due to the body’s natural response creating a protective capsule of scar tissue around the implant. Sometimes, however, these capsules harden and can cause misshapen deformities in the look and feel of the breasts, causing discomfort and in some cases pain. Capsular Contracture Repair Surgery can be used to reverse the look and feel of this complication, resulting in the desired shape and feel of the breast augmentation.

Because the protective capsule of scar tissue aids in the secure placement of your breast implants, there is a general scale utilized to determine whether or not a Capsular Contracture Repair Surgery is right for you. As always, here at the South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery, our highly-trained staff and top-tier surgeons will aid you in determining where your breast implants sit on the scale:

  • Grade 1: Breasts appear soft and natural, and no discomfort is felt.
  • Grade 2: Breasts appear natural and normal, with slight discomfort, but mainly cosmetically firm.
  • Grade 3: Breasts appear abnormal with an unnatural look, which is not always, but can be accompanied by discomfort.
  • Grade 4: Breasts appear abnormal with an abnormal shape, potential bulging, and is accompanied by discomfort and pain apart from cosmetic deformities.

As always, our surgeons will go through a complete individualized consultation with you to determine which gradient your capsular contracture is with most breast augmentation surgeries leaving patients at a Grade 1 or 2. If it is determined you are at a Grade 3 or 4, your surgeon will speak to you about your options, including Capsular Contracture Repair Surgery, so that you will both look and feel your best.

    The Capsular Contracture Repair Surgery Process


    Due to the nature of determining to what degree your scar tissue has developed, the initial consultation for this procedure is extremely important to determine candidacy for the Capsular Contracture Repair Surgery, especially because it can be associated with pain or discomfort. Be prepared to provide a complete medical history, including all medications you may be taking, a list of allergies, and any documentation of previous surgeries including your breast augmentation(s). After speaking with your plastic surgeon regarding candidacy approval, there is an extensive physical examination including blood tests, before the South Florida Center staff takes photographs and reviews your surgical plan. Prior to the procedure, important instructions will be provided for you including cautions about consuming certain foods, medications, or alcohol. Protocols for hygienic purposes will also be given.


    As this is a breast augmentation revision category of surgery, the procedure varies based on each individual case. After your surgeon determines which grade level (Capsular contracture Repair Surgery is determined at the Grade 3-4 level) you are, they will walk you through how they will go about removing the scar tissue that is encapsulated around the implant, and how they will re-implant (or provide a new implant) to your breasts. Your surgery will likely involve one or more of the following:

    • A carefully placed incision will be made to the breast
    • The implant is carefully removed along with the capsular contracture scar tissue that has been attached
    • Any additional scar tissue remaining can also be removed
    • The plastic surgeon will re-implant the implant 
    • If needed, a new implant will be inserted as a replacement


    After your successful capsular contracture revision surgery the plastic surgeon will carefully bandage your breasts. Your chest can be slightly uncomfortable, and you may notice some bruising and/or swelling. Full recovery and the settling of the surgery can take 3-4 months to see completed results. Because this is a restructuring surgery in nature, your surgeon and our patient advocates will be sure to monitor your results.

    Post Surgery

    Following your capsular contracture repair procedure follow-ups are: one day, one week, and one month after the procedure. After that visit, further appointments will be advised by the doctor to ensure the development of the natural scar tissue.

    This decision will be made by your surgeon based on the look and feel of the breasts following a breast augmentation. The plastic surgeon can also determined your candidacy by the feel, discomfort, or any levels of pain associated with any scar tissue deformity from the capsular contracture.

    A consultation with one of our top-tier plastic surgeons will provide this decision, if you feel like you might be a candidate, especially if you are feeling any pain or discomfort, please contact our center for a consultation.

    Our top-tier plastic surgeons are highly skilled in all breast augmentation surgeries and repair surgeries, and know how important the least amount of visual scarring is to our patients. They will use their expertise to mitigate any and all scarring. In addition, following proper post-operative instructions is key to minimizing scarring.

    General anesthesia is always provided during our procedures, and here at the South Florida Center for Cosmetic Surgery, we only have general anesthesia administered by a professional M.D. Anesthesiologist.

    This varies depending on the degree of the capsular contracture, where the scar tissue has developed, the amount of scar tissue, if there is pain included, and the nature of any deformities of the breast. As with any cosmetic surgery, this will be determined after an extensive consultation with our world-class plastic surgeons, as will any decisions that might be made during the capsular contracture repair procedure itself to ensure you look and feel your best.

    Yes; this is an outpatient procedure. A designated adult must be available to take you home following your capsular contracture repair surgery.

Our plastic surgeons will always be forthcoming with their expectations, as well as monitor your recovery in all follow-up appointments.
