What is Capsular Contracture?
As a leader in his field, Dr. Gray has pioneered the treatment of this difficult problem. In addition, he holds the patent for an implant that decreases capsular contracture.
Scar tissue always forms when a breast implant is placed in the body. Capsular contracture is a hardness of the breast that develops when this scar tissue collapses and squeezes the breast implant. Mild contractures can be improved with increased massage and the use of medication. Preoperative planning to place the implant under the muscle also helps. Placing the implant under the muscle lowers the risk of capsular contracture by 30%. However, when the conservative measures fail, the recommendation most often is to return to surgery to remove the capsule and replace the implant.
"I had a procedure done over 13 years ago. I still feel and look great! He is sensitive professional and knows what he’s doing. Will go back and refer him to as many people as I know."- J.F. / Google / May 05, 2018
"Words do not describe how happy I am that I found Dr. Gray and his staff. Everyone made me feel at home. Dr. Gray saved my sanity by performing a perfect capsulectomy and replacing my implants. I had been in pain every second of every day since the day I had my first implants done. I could not handle the pain and discomfort anymore after 3 years. The original surgeon was absolutely no help and I would never recommend him or his office. I live in Discovery Bay and some days it would take 2 hours to get to Dr. Greys office and 2 hours home. And it was COMPLETELY WORTH IT! It's you body so make sure you're not being lazy, like me with my the first surgery, and go see Dr. Grey. My only wish is that I went to him first! He was very up front, does not over promise, listens to what you have to say and how you feel. He is extremely educated and believes in the products he chooses to use. I appreciate him and the staff for everything and honesty can't wait to see them again!"- S.P. / Yelp / Feb 17, 2020
"Dr. Gray is such a talented surgeon and I would trust no one else but him. His results are beautiful with minimal scaring. From what I understand he is a Micro-Surgeon so his technique is unique. I hear a lot about people looking for surgeons who are "nice or talkative" I could care less about that; I'm driven by good results. Not only do I trust his beautiful work, but I feel safe as he has a proven track record for safety. He has a wonderful nurse Cherisse who will make you feel comfortable and cared for. I would not hesitate to recommend him. Message me with questions, I'm happy to answer more details regarding the work."- R.T. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2020
"I got breast augmentation 10 years ago and I have never had any problems with them I would highly recommend doctor Gray if you are considering any type of surgery. He is one of the best and hes a humble man."- D.H. / Yelp / Feb 11, 2020
"I had the most amazing experience with Dr.Gray! I had my surgery 4 years ago and when I first met him, he was super informative and I could tell he had an artistic eye. I scheduled my surgery days after my consult and the whole day was comfortable, I wasnt nervous at all because I knew i was in good hands. Healing was a breeze, I stopped my prescription pain medicine the day after surgery and I had no bruising at all. These days, I follow many surgeons online and ive seen many surgery clips and there is a difference in healing based on how gentle and experienced the surgeon is, and Dr. Gray's expertise shows in the healing process. I wanted a natural look, and he delivered. No one is able to tell Ive had work done :)His staff was extremely personable and accomodating towards me and they went above and beyond expectations.5 Stars in every category. My experience was perfect every step of the way."- N.D. / Google / Feb 04, 2020
What is Strattice™?
Recurrence rates following capsule removal were quite high until recently. Dr. Gray, a leader in his field, pioneered the use of Strattice at the time of scar capsule removal and implant replacement. He holds the patent on the collagen-coated breast implant and showed, in previous studies, a lower rate of scar capsule contracture occurrence with this implant. He performed his first case of capsulectomy with placement of Strattice to prevent recurrent capsular contracture in November 2008. The recurrence rate is very, very low with the use of Strattice as has been shown by Dr. Gray and confirmed by other plastic surgeons.
