What is cc comes back?

Post by loui1981 on 22nd December 2014, 8:11 am

I had a capsulotomy not a capsulectomy. I've read this is more like a temporary fix as leaving the scar tissue there means it's likely to grow back around the new implant they fitted.  But my aftercare says they only treat you for it once. So what happens to me now if it comes back?

If your surgeon didn't feel the CC bad enough to warrant a capsulectomy Loui, then due to the high risk of infection post-op it will not be in your best interest to be performed. Instead a capsulomy is chosen and I haven't read anywhere that this is a 'temporarily fix' it is Infact the best option with only the top of the capsule needing to be scored to stretch the capsule with new capsule forming i between the scored tissue. This isn't 'scar tissue' like on the outer side of the skin so there will be no hardness at all to the capsule. It's simply a case of the body renewing the tissue that's not there creating a nice new flexible capsule.
