Background: Capsular contracture remains one of the most common complications involving aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery; however, its cause, prevention, and treatment remain to be fully elucidated. Presently, there is no accurate and reproducible pathologic in vitro or in vivo model examining capsular contracture. The purpose of this study was to establish an effective pathologic capsular contracture animal model that mimics the formation of capsular contracture response in humans… 
Reduction of Capsular Thickness around Silicone Breast Implants by Zafirlukast in Rats
TLDR
The study confirms the effectiveness of this compound in preventing fibrosis and putatively also in reducing the extent of collagen reaction when a capsule has been formed and indicates that the collagen fibers and fibroblast layer were reduced in the zafirlukast-treated group compared to the controls.
The Effect of Antiadhesion Agent on Peri-implant Capsular Formation in Rabbits
TLDR
It is suggested that antiadhesion agent (AAA) can be helpful in reducing capsule formation in rabbits, and clinical trials are needed to evaluate this finding.
Botulinum Toxin A Affects Early Capsule Formation Around Silicone Implants in a Rat Model
TLDR
The results suggest that BoTA may provide an alternative treatment for reducing capsule formation and preventing contracture, and further studies may reveal the mechanism of action.
Prevention of Capsular Contracture with Guardix-SG® After Silicone Implant Insertion
TLDR
The authors were able to demonstrate that capsular contracture can be suppressed in the rabbit model by instilling Guardix-SG® after insertion of cohesive gel implants in the subpanniculus carnosus plane.
Effects of Medical Chitosan on Capsular Formation Following Silicone Implant Insertion in a Rabbit Model
TLDR
MC reduced the risk of developing capsular contracture around silicone implants, possibly by blocking the signaling pathway of TIMPs.
Open Capsulotomy: An Effective but Overlooked Treatment for Capsular Contracture after Breast Augmentation

TLDR
Open capsulotomy is a safe and effective treatment that avoids the additional morbidity and cost of a capsulectomy and deserves reconsideration by plastic surgeons.
Role of mechanical and thermal damage in pericapsular inflammatory response to injectable silicone in a rabbit model
TLDR
Damage to tissues around the injected silicone induced capsular inflammation, and Macrophages and damage-associated molecular pattern molecules were involved in the early stages of inflammation.
Animal model of implant capsular contracture: effects of chitosan.
TLDR
This preclinical study may provide a model to test various mechanistic hypotheses of breast capsule formation and subsequent CC, and chitosan-associated silicone implantation in a rabbit model resulted in Baker grade III/IV CC.
The Impact of Triamcinolone Acetonide in Early Breast Capsule Formation in a Rabbit Model
TLDR
Triamcinolone acetonide during breast implantation influences early capsule formation and may reduce capsular contracture in the early phases of wound healing in a rabbit model.
Noninvasive Shock Wave Treatment for Capsular Contractures After Breast Augmentation: A Rabbit Study
TLDR
It is found that shock waves can cause changes in the structure or the composition of capsular contracture, and the treatment could decrease water content, loosen structure, decrease collagen deposition, and might alleviate scar formation from capsularcontracture.

Chemically Assisted Capsulectomy in the Rabbit Model: A New Approach
TLDR
Mesna was used to highlight the junction between scar and normal tissue and to help separate the tissues during the capsulectomy in one of the two capsules in each rabbit, and Saline was used for the same purpose in the other.
Does Infection Play a Role in Breast Capsular Contracture?
TLDR
Subclinical infection with Staphylococcus epidermidis may be one of the causes of capsular contracture around breast implants, according to the present study.
A Rat Model for Capsular Contracture: The Effects of Surface Texturing
TLDR
This rat model provides an inexpensive animal model for further investigation of a difficult clinical problem and in vivo biomechanical analysis to determine tissue modulus has been shown to be a sensitive method of defining overall soft-tissue contracture around implanted biomaterials.
Measurement of capsular contracture: the conventional breast implant and the Pittsburgh implant.
TLDR
An altered surface topography may serve as a means of rendering a capsule less mechanically effective and be used in the laboratory to characterize the extent of capsular contracture.
Subclinical infection of the silicone breast implant surface as a possible cause of capsular contracture
TLDR
The concept that capsular contracture is associated with subclinical infection of silicone implants is supported by this study and bacterial recovery and growth occurs at a frequency greater than previously thought.
Capsular contracture and silicone gel: Experimental study
TLDR
The statistical analysis of the data indicates that the thickness of the prosthesis' membrane and the implant's volume did not impact significantly on the grade of fibrosis.
Tendency to capsular contracture around smooth and textured gel-filled silicone mammary implants: a five-year follow-up.
TLDR
Comparisons between the 1-year and 5-year tonometric results of the 24 breasts that still had the original textured implants showed that after 5 years, a small but statistically significant increase in hardness had occurred compared with that after 1 year.
The Biophysical and Histologic Properties of Capsules Formed by Smooth and Textured Silicone Implants in the Rabbit
TLDR
A significant correlation between intraexpander pressures, applanation tonometry, and Baker class is found and it is revealed that the textured implants form a tighter and thicker capsule than the smooth implants after 3 months of observation.
Capsular contracture around saline-filled fine textured and smooth mammary implants: a prospective 7.5-year follow-up.
TLDR
This study showed no significant difference of contracture with smooth versus fine textured implants, and the majority of the patients preferred the smooth implants.
