Breast augmentation continues to be a much sought after operation. The most common complication associated with breast augmentation is capsular contracture. Everyone who gets an augmentation will develop two capsules. This is your bodies response to a foreign body, but the key is to keep it soft and natural. I routinely irrigate my augmentation pockets with antibacterial solution. More and more evidence is pointing to the potential role bacteria play in developing marked encapsulation.
There was a recent study of over 10,000 augmentation patients, half who received antibiotic irrigation and half who did not. The conclusion was that antimicrobial irrigation DID NOT reduce the incidence of capsular contracture.
