Capsulorrhaphy is performed to reshape the capsular contracture, or capsule, that surrounds an implant.
About Breast Capsulorrhaphy
It’s important to understand capsulorrhaphy definition because it is similar to other breast procedures used to correct problems with breast implants and the capsular contracture around it.
Over time, gravity will pull on the weight of an implant, stretching and thinning it out and disrupting the capsule, or pocket around it. Breast capsulorrhaphy works to reshape or recontour a capsule to fit back within the sutures around the implant. It avoids surgery to remove part or all of the capsule or the implant, instead, it tightens a capsule pocket that’s become misshapen and repositions it into a more supportive place.
