  • What is Breast Capsular Contracture?

    After a breast augmentation procedure with implants, the body forms a protective lining around the implants called a “tissue capsule.” Capsular contracture occurs when the tissue capsule shrinks and starts squeezing the implant. 

  • Visualize Potential Breast Augmentation Results with 3D Imaging

    The Vectra 3D imaging system was primarily used with clinical research studies involving breast surgery revision. It provides physicians with objective information and standard measurements allowing them to see how the volume and shape of the breast changes over time in very precise ways. 

    “The same concept is useful when you are looking at a primary breast augmentation or any other breast surgery,” explains Dr. Richard Baxter, a board-certified plastic surgeon based in Mountlake Terrace, WA.

  • Fat Grafting Can Reduce the Appearance of Breast Implant Rippling

    The most common cause of breast implant rippling is when a patient does not have sufficient amount of tissue to cover the implant.  

    Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Kamran Khoobehi explains that if a breast implant is too big or the patient is born with inadequate amount of breast tissue to cover the implant, this will result in implant rippling.
