A health problem is exposed that has a high incidence and that in many cases can be preventable. The etiology and symptoms of capsular contracture as the most frequent complication of augmentation mastoplasty are explained. This research is carried out with the aim of identifying the risk factors associated with the formation of capsular contracture, as well as its main causes. Health education for patients who undergo augmentation mastoplasty guarantees a successful recovery. Plastic surgeons are required to apply national action protocols to avoid the appearance of this deforming complication, the treatment of which requires surgical reoperations with possible recurrences that have an unfavorable economic and social impact.
