During surgery of any kind, your body creates a natural reaction to devices inserted in the body. During breast implant surgery, scar tissue forms around the breast implant surface creating a capsule.

Your body is very intelligent — and ultimately recognize when an object has been put within your tissues.

A capsule around a breast implant is a naturally occurring tissue that can benefit you.
