En Bloc Capsulectomy is the removal of the breast implant along with all the extruded material, and the capsule. There are a number of reasons that may cause a woman may choose to have her breast implants removed. Breast implants may rupture, there may be a change in the size or positioning of the implant, there may be scarring around the implant (known as a capsular contracture), or a woman may simply wish to remove her implants due to personal reasons even if there is no issue with the implants themselves.
Breast implants can be removed using several different techniques, though the en bloc capsulectomy is arguably the best method as it removes the scar tissue and the capsule. The en bloc capsulectomy also allows the muscle and breast tissue to return to its natural positioning and can create a better overall aesthetic result. Sometimes patients may opt to have a mastopexy, or breast lift, procedure either at the same time as the en bloc capsulectomy or at a later time. If you are interested in learning more about your options for breast implant removal and to find out if the en bloc capsulectomy with or without mastopexy may be right for you, contact our office to schedule your confidential consultation with our office today.
