Hi there
Has anyone suffered from Capsular Contraction due to the breast Radiation distorting their implant. I would like to know if they had their implants replaced with new ones and how it all went. Thanks Jody

    It's very common and not uncommon to need a replacement and some pocket work. It's one of the reasons they often leave tissue expanders in pre radiotherapy and some surgeons over expand to compensate.
