What Is an En Bloc Capsulectomy?
While some women can remove their implants alone, others need additional work.
An en bloc capsulectomy is a procedure that removes the breast implants and the scar tissue (capsule) that forms around the implant over time. During an en bloc capsulectomy, the implant remains within the capsule and is removed as one piece.
This is to minimize any rupturing of the implant or deal with medical complications that have to do with capsular contracture, which is the hardening of the scar tissue around the implant.
This procedure is not considered cosmetic surgery.
What Can En Bloc Capsulectomy Improve?
There are numerous benefits of an en bloc capsulectomy. These include:
- Ensuring your health and safety after an implant rupture, a leaking implant, or breast implant illness (BII)
- Restoring your natural breasts again
- Increasing your comfort in bras
- More ease when participating in strenuous activities
