Breast Augmentation & Capsular Contracture

Posted by on Jan 24, 2014 in Cosmetic Surgery |

What Is Capsular Contracture?

Capsular contracture is one of the most common complications associated with breast augmentation surgery.

This results from an excessive reaction of the immune system to foreign objects.

After breast augmentation, your body forms fibrous tissue that encapsulates the implant in an attempt to wall it off.

When the fibrous capsule tightens and squeezes the implant, capsular contracture occurs.

Signs and Symptoms

The signs and symptoms of capsular contracture commonly appear gradually and may first be observed as a high-riding or misshapen breast.

As firmness increases, the breast may feel tight or even painful, especially when you are lying on them.

The breasts can appear very round, almost ball-like, and visible rippling may also be noted.

Medical tourism has become a growing trend worldwide as thousands of people travel outside their home country each year to undergo medical procedures abroad.

The reasons for medical travel vary greatly – but most commonly the simple fact is that many Westerners can find cheaper medical care abroad, where often the price of surgery or procedures plus the plane ticket and stay are cheaper than the price of surgery alone at home, and in many cases the quality of medical care found abroad matches the quality of care that can be found in the home country of medical tourists.

Medical travel allows tourists not only to take care of their medical needs but also provides an opportunity to experience a new place, all in one package. More recently, plastic surgery has been a booming market in the medical tourism field, and Southeast Asia is often the place to get it done – tourists from all over Australia and Europe visit countries like Thailand, South Korea, and Malaysia for a breast lift or augmentation, tummy tuck, or nose job, to name just a few of the vast plastic surgery options offered abroad.
