Capsular contracture AGAIN - what now?
I had my saline implants placed under the muscle eight years ago and in 2014 I had capsular contracture of the right implant. As a result, an open capsulotomy was performed by my surgeon and the original implant re-inserted. The area around the implant was found to be very inflamed, but I took antibiotics and anti-inflammatories after the capsulotomy and all was fine. Now the same has happened again. Less than two years later. I returned to my surgeon today and he suggested one of the following: 1) open capsulotomy again (after he tried a closed capsulotomy in the consult room with his bare hands), although he said the capsular contracture may likely occur again 2) remove the implants and replace with new ones - perhaps of a different texture, eg. silicone or foam-coated?? OR 3) remove implants and have breast augmentation involving the injection of my own body fat from one area and into my breasts. Problem with this is I don't have enough body fat to end up with breasts of a similar size to my current C-cups. Please help! I don't want to lose my implants, but don't know what the best option is!April 13th, 2016 VIC
