Capsular contracture revision surgery, breast still deformed.

I am just wondering if you think my breast will settle more. I had breast revision surgery for capsular contracture 3 weeks ago dual plane, 420cc bilateral periareolar incision (reused old scars) I still have an indent which I had pre op and I notice the breastfed still stills different to the other, and the nipple is puckered. Will all of this settle?

    Hi Jess,
    At only three weeks there will still be a lot of swelling and you are early in the recovery period. Your final outcome won’t be evident for a few months. Some puckering may represent sutures which will dissolve and that may lead to a resolution of your concerns. They frequently will take three months or so.
    Breasts are always different from side to side both before surgery and afterwards, more like sisters than twins. Now that the capsular contracture has been corrected you are closer to having them even. It is too early to predict your final result.
    It is always difficult to give precise advice on the basis of photographs without a full understanding of what has been undertaken at operation but at this point Jess I would just wait. It is too early to tell but certainly there has been a substantial improvement already.
    Kind regards,
