Abstract

Capsular contracture is the most frequent complication in breast augmentation. It has multifactorial aetiology but biofilm is suggested to have a central role in the capsular contracture pathogenesis. To sterilize the breast cavity and the implant after insertion we decided to use a mixture of oxygen and ozone, using ozone sterilizing properties with no subsequent contamination related to manipulation.
