There are plenty of reasons why you might consider having your breast implants removed, whether because of complications or you simply want your natural breasts again. While a breast implant removal can be an excellent option, sometimes some extra steps are required to achieve your natural feel and look.
Also called a Total Capsulectomy, the En Bloc Capsulectomy removes the implant and scar capsule in one whole procedure. There are some benefits to this, including that it can more effectively restore the breasts to their natural position, feel, and makeup. If you’ve experienced capsular contracture to a high degree, this can sometimes be preferable to trying to extract the capsule around the implant.
Whether you have experienced complications or not, some of the greatest benefits of the En Bloc Capsulectomy procedure include:
- A return to the natural state of the breasts
- Complete removal of implants
- More effective capsule removal
- More effective settling of the breast tissue and muscles
- Reduced risk of complications after implants are removed

There are plenty of valid reasons that women consider En Bloc removal of their implants. This can be due to dissatisfaction, asymmetry or shifting due to complications, hardened scar tissue, or breast implant rupture. As with your initial breast surgery, you should be in good health and discuss any health concerns with your plastic surgeon during a consultation.
An En Bloc procedure means that the implant and its surrounding scar tissue capsule are removed at a single time. This can be beneficial since it prevents the inside implant from producing contamination and also allows the tissues of the breast to settle back into their natural position more effectively.
After removal, some techniques can be used to restore the breasts to a more natural look and position. This might include techniques like a breast lift or fat transfer to restore and reshape the breasts after the implant has been removed. Your plastic surgeon will ensure you understand your options during your consultation.
Recovery from your En Bloc procedure will be similar to your initial breast augmentation or reconstruction. This includes wearing a supportive compression garment and taking time away from your normal activities for a week or more. You will be prescribed medications to take in order to reduce swelling and discomfort. Your plastic surgeon will make sure you have explicit instructions to follow after your procedure so you know what to expect.
