Hey ladies, just wondering if there is anyone out there who knows if there is any problems with having an autoimmune disease (eg hashimotos, lupus etc) and getting capsular contracture after having implants put in? I've been researching for years now and just recently realised the possibility that I may develop an autoimmune problem as my mother has one. I've been tested and nothing has come up so far, but autoimmune problems are something that can develop and are commonly a genetic thing :/ since autoimmune diseases attack foreign objects and its own objects in the body, would it be likely that it would cause CC around the implants? Does anyone have any experience with capsular contracture being a result of autoimmune reactions? And will doctors be less likely to operate if they know it's a likelihood? Thanks in advance!
