Ultrasound Therapy for Capsular Contraction after Breast Augmentation
The treatment involves the use of soundwaves to trigger increased blood supply to the area, softening the scar tissue.
Ultrasound treatment for capsular contracture has several benefits, including:
- Improves natural lymphatic drainage
- Reduces edema
- Triggers the natural production of fibroblasts for natural healing
- Ramps up the speed of cellular regeneration
- Assists in the healing process
- Brings critical oxygen into the tissues
- Promotes new blood vessel regeneration
- Reduces inflammation
The ultrasound technique for treating capsular contracture has proven to be effective in preventing the onset of capsular contracture, and many women who have had implants take the step of avoiding the development of the condition with these treatments. While ultrasound can be a very effective treatment for existing cases of hardened scar tissue, it is also now used to help women who want to ward off the development of the condition. It is far more affordable than facing the prospect of undergoing revision surgery.
Muscle blading/scraping, soft tisue work and percussion therapy is also used during the treatment to enhance results.
A minimum of 6 treatments (2 times per week for 3 weeks) is required to see results. Each treatment will take between 10-20 minutes.
