Does anyone perform endoscopic transaxillary capsular contracture revision?, asks a RealSelf user. “I had 325 silicone moderate profiles placed under the muscle via the armpit 1 year ago. I have capsular contracture and would like to avoid a revision through the nipple or under the breast because I get keloid and do not scar well. Does anyone perform capsular contracture revisions through the armpit?”
It is possible to undergo transaxillary capsular contracture release, says Aristocrat’s certified surgeon Dr. Kevin Tehrani, M.D., F.A.C.S.
“You first need an MRI to make sure your implant is intact. You can then undergo transaxillary capsular contracture release with replacement of the same implant if it is not ruptured (most likely scenario). I perform this procedure either transaxillary or transumbilical.”
