How do I find a surgeon specializing in severe capsular contracture deformity (which I have after 4 breast augmentations)?

I have had four breast augmentations. I have been told I have severe capsular contracture and contracture deformity. I need a physician who specializes in this area. I am having trouble finding a reputable plastic surgeon to take on this operation. Please advise.

This is a very good question and not an uncommon one. Four previous surgeries is significant and you certainly need someone with experience. You really have to research the plastic surgeons in your area, look at pictures, review sites like realself.com. The state of the art today is to consider a dermal matrix separate the scar tissue. Good luck

I am very sorry to hear of your difficulty. Finding a board certified plastic surgeon who does many breast augmentations is likely also the most experienced at treating capsular contracture. After 4 breast augmentations removal of your implants and capsules followed by fat transplantation may be your best option. Even with textured implants and acellular dermis wrap your chances of a recurrent capsule with new implants is high.
