Is there anything that can be done to prevent capsular contracture?
Capsular contracture is a problem most likely due to a biofilm of different bacteria. It’s a very difficult problem. We do specific things to prevent capsular contracture, such as antibiotic irrigation, intravenous antibiotics for the patient, and a no-touch technique we use with the Keller funnel. Postoperatively, we have the patient massage and also take antibiotics. These are simple things that can be done to hopefully prevent capsular contracture.
