A few weeks ago, we performed a major surgery at a university hospital where the director is an adjunct assistant professor. This case was done by removing the capsule and replacing the breast augmentation bag, especially in cases where encapsulation occurred in past breast augmentation surgery and was accompanied by severe contracture of the third degree.
Removing the thick capsules from past breast augmentation surgery can be a daunting task. To remove the capsule cleanly, it is necessary to carefully peel off the capsule while repeating delicate removal and hemostasis by a plastic surgeon.
These surgeries were performed with the participation of four specialists on the day of the operation with a team medical system in place. The breast augmentation bag could be replaced with a large one over 400cc, and the patients were very satisfied.
For complicated cases as above, we perform surgeries in the university hospital.
