The techniques and tools used to perform breast augmentation surgery have seen a number of advancements over the years. These advancements allow for enhanced results and reduce the likelihood of complications occurring during the procedure. However, there are some complications that can still occur due to reasons that are difficult to pinpoint.

Capsular contracture is one of these complications. It can cause discomfort and pain and may even distort the shape of your breasts. The issue occurs when the internal scar-tissue capsule that has formed around the breast implant is thicker than normal. This places a large amount of pressure on the implant, which can result in a misshapen breast that is hard to the touch.

Capsular contracture can be corrected through breast implant revision surgery. Plastic surgeon Dr. Teri Burnett can remove the scar-tissue capsule and replace the implant in order to restore the beautiful shape of your breasts.
