What is capsular contracture after breast implants?

Capsular contracture is an issue associated with breast implant surgery. When your body does not provide defense against the device that is inserted into your breast region, your body is left unprotected. It needs to protect itself from breast implant devices, so it tries to seal the device off by forming a “capsule.” The capsule is basically a layer of scar tissue around the object, which creates scar tissue.

When the scar tissue around the implant begins to tighten — or contracts — around the implant, it makes the breasts start to feel hard, causing discomfort and upward displacement of the otherwise known as capsular contracture.
