Have you received breast augmentation surgery and are experiencing a feeling of stiffness in the breasts? This may be due to a complication of breast enhancement known as capsular contracture. If you think you may be dealing with this or another issue after breast augmentation, you may be in need of a revision breast surgery procedure.
After breast augmentation, a thin shell of scar tissue typically forms around the implant, and this is normal. This is called the capsule. With capsular contracture, the capsule is much thicker than normal, making it tighter around the implant. This can create a misshapen appearance for the breast, along with feelings of stiffness and pain. In these cases, the revision breast surgery procedure may be used to remove the capsule entirely or just alter it.
