This is a breast capsulectomy surgery video. We begin the video with the patient already on the operating table with our surgical director, Mr Adrian Richards introducing the procedure. Our patient had a breast augmentation a few years ago and had Nagor GSX implants, which the left side has developed a capsule. You can see the difference in shape of the two breasts, and the left one, is very firm and hard to the touch. The visual appearance of the capsule did bother the patient somewhat, but her main reason for electing to come in for the surgery was because it had become incredibly painful, even wearing clothes it was tight and hurt.

We skip the actual surgery, and just see the end results, which show symmetrical results and much better softer results for the left side. Then we look at the capsule, and the implant removed, and it is pretty clear why it was so hard and under so much tension. The implant is in a good condition, but the capsule is not even half the size of it. Mr Richards tries to put the capsule back over the implant, and struggles until finally giving up.
