In brief: If you mean breast..
Implant capsule contractures, the answer is murky because we don't know their cause.
Only a small proportion need treatment: the ones that are painful or cause distortion of the breast that can not be hidden in clothes. Sometimes, if the scar tissue is removed and the implant replaced, the scar tissue will not recur, but this is unpredictable. For a very small number of patients, this is a problem.
