The other day, we performed the removal surgery of the breast augmentation bag and the capsules for a patient who complained of pain in the neck and upper arm due to the encapsulation of the breast augmentation bag that the patient had in the past. This type of operation required careful removal of the capsules around the bag, so the operation was performed under general anesthesia after the patient was admitted to a university hospital.
Breast augmentation bags that were placed in the past can cause progressive encapsulation of the area (called capsular contracture), causing pain and chest deformity, as well as sometimes lymphoma. Please refer to this page for more details.
If you are considering removing the breast augmentation bag, please feel free to contact “Plaza Plastic Surgery”, which has 18 years of experience in the United States.
