Combat capsular contracture
Common complications occurring after breast augmentation with implants are the formation of a capsular contracture or the rotation or dislocation of the implant.
What is capsular contracture?
The formation of a capsule around an implant is normal, to a certain degree, because the body's immune system recognizes it as a foreign body and "wraps" it in tissue. The capsule can contract and harden. Depending on the intensity of the capsular contracture it can cause pain and an aesthetically inacceptable result. In most cases, a re-operation for the exchange of the affected implant then becomes necessary.
How do I prevent?
The implant surface plays a crucial role. Implants with textured surface (Mesmo® sensitive, POLYtxt®) and implants with Microthane® envelope reduce the risk of capsular contracture. Especially implants enveloped in Microthane® contribute to an overall lower complication rate. In Europe, POLYTECH Health & Aesthetics is the only manufacturer of Microthane® enveloped implants.
At POLYTECH Health & Aesthetics, we are proud of our quality and our craftsmanship. We manufacture all our products according to the highest quality standards in Germany. Because of our expertise, we have put in place the extended warranty program "Implants of Excellence" for our implants. In case of a shell rupture, for example, we grant lifetime replacement implants. (>> Implants of Excellence / Quality assurance)
