What happens during a capsulectomy procedure?
You will undergo general anesthesia to begin the procedure. Dr. Pratt will make a vertical incision from the lower crease of the breast up to the areola. Through this incision, he will carefully separate the capsule from the surrounding tissues with the breast implant inside of it. The complete capsule is then taken out through the incision. This meticulous, complex technique requires a high level of precision and training and provides certainty that no fluids or substances within the capsule or implant come in any further contact with your body.
