Capsular Contracture

Capsular contracture, which is the development of scar tissue around a breast implant is one of the more common complications following breast augmentation. As a recognized expert in plastic surgery of the breast, Dr. Brown is often asked to assist and manage with these difficult problems. The cases below represent some of the patients that Dr. Brown has treated with capsular contracture.
