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

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?

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.
