Aspen therapy

Looking for more information on the Aspen therapy. Where this can be done.

Insurance will not cover a capsular contracture surgery and came across the Aspen procedure.

Procedure: Breast Augmentation
Location: Olney, IL

We have used the Aspen ultrasound treatments for several years in our office now and found it helpful. It works best for patients with early capsular contracture. Unfortunately, it has little effect on advanced capsular contracture.

Good to know Dr. Parker has Aspen and of his poistive experience. Thank you for your question Rose.

Aspen Therapy is ineffective in curing capsular contracture, as are all non-surgical options. Choose an expert in revision surgery who adheres to evidence based best practices to minimize recurrence.

Thank you for sharing your excellent question. Although ultrasound may be useful in early scar tissue formation, typically the scar tissue of capsular contracture is too advanced to make a meaningful difference and surgery is typically required.
