On removal operation of breast augmentation bag

About several years after breast augmentation surgery, thick capsules are made around the implant with a considerable probability (up to 25%). This is called capsular contracture of a breast implants, and it is classified in three grades in the United States. Grade 1 has a slight wrinkle feeling when touched, but no visible abnormality; Grade 2 is one with wrinkles emerging on the skin surface, Grade 3 is a painful addition in addition to that, requires a removal operation.

Regarding the removal technique of breast enlargement bag, it is not a easy surgery. Simply removing the bag may result in inadequate results. It is necessary to remove capsules that are in close contact with the surface of the bag at the same time. In particular, capsules on the front of the bag should be removed. Otherwise, the capsule will remain around the entire circumference and become a cyst (Seroma).

Upon removal of the capsule, it may cause considerable bleeding. Therefore, at our office, we do not recommend doing such surgery as an outpatient surgery. Our doctor becomes your doctor, we recommend to operate at university hospital.
