Capsular Contracture in Plano, TX
A capsular contracture can detract from the results of your breast augmentation and lead to further health concerns. The Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas offers capsular contraction treatment to residents of Frisco, Dallas, Plano, and neighboring Texas communities.
What is Capsular Contracture?
A capsular contracture is one of the more common problems that can develop after a breast augmentation. Usually, tissue surrounds implants following a breast augmentation, forming a capsule. A capsular contracture occurs when this tissue tightens and becomes firm, which is most often because of bacteria in the breasts. When this happens, the implant can become firm, distorted, and painful. Although our patients rarely encounter this problem, we specialize and offer our patients both surgical and non-surgical solutions that can help them overcome this condition.
How Much Does Capsular Contracture Treatment Cost in Plano, TX?
The average cost of a capsular contracture procedure can range from $1,500 to $12,000, depending on the extent of treatment necessary to deliver your desired results. If you have developed a capsular contracture, we ask that you come in for a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons. During this time, we will develop a personalized treatment plan that will include the exact cost of treatment. At the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas, we offer flexible financing options and accept all major credit cards to keep this treatment affordable and accessible.
How is Capsular Contracture Treated?
At the Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery Center of Texas, we use the Aspen After Surgery ultrasound treatment to address capsular contracture. This non-invasive treatment combines ultrasound technology, antibiotics, and massage techniques to increase blood supply and destroy the bacteria responsible for capsular contracture. Over the course of several treatments, the hardened tissue will be gradually broken down by the body. In most cases, the Aspen After Surgery ultrasound treatment is sufficient in treating capsular contracture. For more aggressive cases, surgery may be required.
What is Recovery like After Capsular Contracture Treatment?
The Aspen After Surgery ultrasound treatment is non-invasive, so patients will not have any downtime after their treatment. However, we typically perform this treatment in a series of 10 treatment sessions over the course of a few weeks. Each treatment lasts approximately one hour. Although there is no downtime, patients may have to take time off of work and other activities in order to accommodate for the frequent treatment sessions.
