What is Breast Implant Removal with Total Capsulectomy En Bloc?
Breast implant removal with total capsulectomy en bloc is an advanced technique for the removal of breast implants. Traditional breast implant removal simply involves taking out the breast implant from the body. However, in the event of a ruptured implant, this may come with the risk of contamination if the breast implant filling is exposed to other parts of the body. Fortunately, a capsule of tissue forms around the breast implant shortly after a breast augmentation procedure. While this is technically scar tissue due to the trauma of the breast augmentation surgery, it creates a barrier between the breast implant and the rest of the body. With a breast implant removal with total capsulectomy en bloc, the entire breast implant is removed by taking out the capsule of tissue that surrounds it, while leaving that tissue intact. This prevents any potential contamination from a ruptured breast implant.
