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.
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.
