In patients who have implants and develop a cancer, the cancer can sometimes be removed as a lumpectomy. Lumpectomy is often treated with radiation therapy post-operatively. Radiation can increase the risk for capsular contracture in the radiated breast. Correction requires release of the encapsulated breast pocket or excision of the capsule and often a lift of the contralateral side.
