Open Capsuletctomy

What is Open Capsulectomy?

When breast implants are placed into the body, the body forms a lining around it, often referred to as the “capsule”. In some people, the capsule will tighten and squeeze the implant, distorting the appearance of the breast. This is called capsule contracture, and it is the most common complication of breast augmentation surgery. The most successful treatment for capsule contracture is Open Capsulectomy. In this procedure, the surgeon goes in and actually removes the scar capsule. Once the capsule is removed, the body forms a new capsule around the breast implant.
