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.

Benefits of Breast Implant Removal with Total Capsulectomy En Bloc

Benefits of the breast implant removal treatment include:

  • Complete removal of breast implant and capsular tissue
  • Eliminates risk of contamination from ruptured breast implants
  • Restores breasts to their natural shape and size

Who is the Ideal Candidate for Breast Implant Removal with Total Capsulectomy En Bloc?

However, the best way to determine your candidacy for the breast implant removal with this technique is to schedule a consultation with Dr. David Klein or Dr. Andrew Kochuba. During this consultation, they can determine if a breast implant removal with total capsulectomy en bloc the best solution for you.

What is the Breast Implant Removal with Total Capsulectomy En Bloc Procedure Like?

The breast implant removal with total capsulectomy en bloc performed with general anesthesia. When possible, Dr. David Klein and Dr. Andrew Kochuba will use the same incision areas as your initial surgery, which enables them to perform the procedure without any additional scarring. However, because of the techniques involved, this may not always be possible. Upon making incisions, the scar tissue surrounding the breast implant will be removed with the breast implant concealed inside. This process prevents the breast implant or its filling from leaking into other areas of the body.

What Can I Expect After Breast Implant Removal with Total Capsulectomy En Bloc?

After your breast implant removal with total capsulectomy en bloc, you can expect swelling, bruising and discomfort in the breasts as the tissue heals. Ensuring that the tissue heals properly is key to achieving optimal results and enjoying a comfortable recovery period. For this reason, many patients take one to two weeks off of work and other activities to rest as much as possible. Additional downtime may be necessary in some cases. On the day of your procedure, we’ll provide you with detailed aftercare instructions to help you successfully navigate the recovery process. Once the breast implants are removed, your breasts will immediately return to their natural shape and size, albeit with some short-term swelling that may distort your final results.
