A capsular contracture is when your body produces too much scar tissue around the implant. A rupture is when the implant splits. Symptoms of implant rupture can vary from patient to patient with some noticing a change in the size or shape of their breast and pain or tenderness whereas some patients have no symptoms at all. Capsular contracture in severe cases can cause your breasts to feel hard, tight and sometimes painful.
Both of these issues are rare and only happen in a small number of patients. At The Private Clinic you have 3 years aftercare breast cover.
We also offer a unique warranty of £1000 towards surgical costs in case of rupture for 10 years from the date of your operation and as many post-operative care and appointments with your surgeon and nursing team as required.
