The techniques and approaches used to accomplish breast augmentation surgery have seen multiple advancements over the years. These advancements have made it easier and safer to perform breast augmentation surgery, and they allow for more natural-looking results.
There are still some complications that can occur as a result of breast augmentation surgery, however, like capsular contracture. Scar tissue naturally forms into a capsule around the breast implant as part of the healing process. In some cases, this capsule forms at a thicker density, which places pressure on the implant. Capsular contracture can cause pain and can even cause the implant to become deformed.
If you are suffering from capsular contracture, board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Brent Moelleken can remove or release the scar tissue and replace the affected implant in order to restore your results. This is a type of breast revision procedure. Contact our office today to schedule a consultation. We proudly serve the greater Beverly Hills & Los Angeles areas.
