Capsulectomy

North Raleigh Plastic Surgery
Welcome to North Raleigh Plastic Surgery. Our team of highly trained and compassionate healthcare professionals deliver excellent surgical results in a state-of-the-art medical facility.

At North Raleigh Plastic Surgery, our cosmetic surgery experts specialize in performing capsulectomy procedures. A capsulectomy is a solution for those facing issues with capsular contracture around breast implants as well as other issues. Capsular contracture is the formation of scar tissue, or a capsule, around a breast implant. This scar tissue can cause discomfort, pain, breast deformity, and impact one’s self-esteem. A capsulectomy involves the removal of this problematic scar tissue.

A capsulectomy can alleviate pain and discomfort associated with capsular contracture. Patients may experience tightness, soreness, or aching sensations in the breast area, which can significantly impact their quality of life. By carefully removing the constricting capsule, this procedure aims to provide relief and restore comfort. Additionally, capsulectomy surgery can address breast implant deformities caused by severe capsular contracture. The capsule’s tightening can lead to unnatural breast shapes and distortion. Through a capsulectomy, patients can regain a more aesthetically pleasing and symmetric appearance of the breasts, enhancing their self-confidence and body image. Some individuals seek capsulectomy surgery to improve their overall breast aesthetics. Capsulectomy surgery can be combined with other breast surgeries, such as breast implant revision or breast lift, to achieve the desired results. Whether it’s addressing physical discomfort, asymmetry, or other concerns, capsulectomy surgery offers a path to enhanced breast aesthetics.

Beyond physical benefits, undergoing a capsulectomy surgery can have a profound impact on a person’s self-esteem and emotional well-being. Restoring natural-looking and feeling breasts can boost confidence, allowing individuals to feel more comfortable and self-assured in their bodies.

What Is a Capsulectomy?

A capsulectomy typically involves making an incision in the crease just beneath the affected breast, which allows the surgeon to access the capsule surrounding the implant. Once the capsule is exposed, the surgeon carefully removes it, along with any associated scar tissue. The procedure can vary in complexity, depending on the severity of the contracture and the specific patient’s needs. In some cases, a partial capsulectomy may be sufficient, where only a portion of the capsule is removed to release tension and improve breast shape. In more severe cases, a complete capsulectomy may be necessary, involving the total removal of the capsule to allow for a fresh start. After the capsule of scar tissue is removed, the surgeon will place a new implant to achieve the desired breast shape and symmetry. The incision is then carefully closed, and postoperative care instructions are provided to promote proper healing. Capsulectomy surgery is a precise and customized procedure performed by experienced plastic surgeons to alleviate discomfort, restore natural breast appearance, and enhance overall patient satisfaction with their breast augmentation. It offers individuals with capsular contracture an opportunity to regain both physical comfort and self-confidence.
