Every woman has a unique physiology. For some women, the body reacts to the implants placed in breast augmentation and develops an excess of scar tissue. This scar tissue, over time, hardens and constricts the implant, leading to a distorted breast appearance along with pain and discomfort.
The development of scar tissue around an implant is a natural reaction, and in the majority of cases, the scar tissue remains soft and flexible. Still, for some women, capsular contracture can develop. This complication is treatable with a custom breast revision surgery, which is performed by Dr. Courtney.
