Revision and risks

Does a revision surgery increase the risk of capsular contracture?

  • Yes, probably.  Definitely there is an association with implant exchange and capsular contracture.  We give Singulair with every implant exchange in hopes we can prevent this.  You may want to ask your doc about it. Good luck!

      Dr. Michelle Roughton Would you recommend going under the muscle with a capsular contracture revision?

      Dr. Michelle Roughton what about a revision that is not for an exchange?  (Fixing a bottoming out situation?).  I have my surgery on Nov 25 but I had my preop today and no one mentioned singulair (I did get my prescriptions as well).

    • Carmen Waleska Hi.  It depends.  Definitely makes sense if you were previously over the muscle and had cap con.  Then it's truly a 'new pocket' and at less risk for recurrence.

    • Ah, antibiotics.  There is NO data suggesting antibiotics are needed with clean implant (breast augmentation) surgery. That being said, we/I use antibiotics for implant surgery.  it's a risk/reward equation in my mind.  So technically no, they aren't needed, but ESPECIALLY if there is ANY question of infection or capsular contracture, I would give them.

    • Probably unnecessary for fixing the fold.  Good luck!
