I am 22 days post BA (250cc silicone unders). I have vitilago (which some doctors consider an auto-immune disease and some would not) for 38 years that has periods of remission and advancement.
I take no medications nor treatment. My PS assured me that my risk of developing capsular contracture was the same as any other patient. What are the risks? I am massaging often during the day but worry about any tightness that I experience. My next check up with PS is in three weeks. Thank you.
A: Vitiliigo does not affect capsular contracture
Vitiligo does not affect capsular contracture. Massage is unproven but very popular recommendation. I do not recommend massage for textured implants early after surgery as it may affect its ability to adhere to the pocket.
