What are the causes of capsule contracture
After you undergo breast enlargement, one of the common things that you might encounter is capsular contracture. There are various factors why this happens, such as the fact that there are saline implants and silicone implants.
Compared to saline implants, capsular contracture is more associated to silicone implants. This is because the shell of the implant can result in variations in the incidence of capsular contracture. In addition, there is also a chance that the placement of the implant can affect the incidence of capsular contracture.
The incidence of capsular contracture may vary at around 10% in a span of ten years. This is the type of contracture which requires a surgery revision. Some incidences can be related to a combination of the local breast and the patient’s variables plus the different types of implant.
Most often, capsular contracture happens in both breasts. The exact incidence of capsular contracture depends on the scientific study, the type of implant, the surgery’s time span, the grading system and a lot more. To avoid capsular contracture, you have to follow the instructions of your surgeon.
Always ask about how you can avoid this scenario because the surgeon knows the things to be done after the surgery. Don’t be afraid to ask.
