Can you explain what is a closed capsulotomy? And is this the right approach for someone with capsular contracture?

Question: 
My girlfriend has capsular contracture and her surgeon recommended something called closed capsulotomy. Can you explain what this is and whether or not it’s the right approach?

Answer: 
A closed capsulotomy is when you squeeze a breast to help pop a capsule contracture.  This is not considered the best procedure to use at present.  We treat most patients with capsular contracture with a surgical approach of complete capsulectomy, implant exchange, and usually Strattice placement.  However, with the new ultrasound system from Aspen Laboratories, we can sometimes treat this non-surgically.  Patients need to come in for a consult and we need to examine the patient.
