En Bloc capsulectomy Miami? En bloc capsulectomy is not a simple procedure. It poses challenges to surgeon and patient alike. First, it is more difficult to perform than standard implant removal. In many cases, I find doing an en bloc capsulectomy to be more physically demanding than doing microsurgery! It takes more time, more difficult lighting, more effort to retract adjacent tissue, and more meticulous attention to detail. The capsule can be less than a millimeter thick and can be easy to tear. In order to “get around” it, a larger incision must often be used than was made to place the implant. In addition, the capsule must be teased away from the adjacent tissue (which may be breast, muscle, or rib), which can cause more damage to structures left behind. Patients are more sore than after simple implant removal and are more likely to have bleeding. To prevent fluid from accumulating as a result of the additional trauma, I leave drains in place, which are also a nuisance. Finally, if the implant is replaced, the lack of scar tissue left behind can make it more difficult to control where that implant ends up.
What are the downsides of en bloc capsulectomy? Because en bloc capsulectomy involves removing the capsule of scar tissue and the breast implant in one piece, it requires a larger incision and resulting scar. The surgery itself is also more complex and lengthy. Your surgeon must carefully detach the scar capsule—which is well-attached to surrounding tissues—while limiting damage and keeping it intact. Because the implant is still inside and the surgeon has not made an incision to see into the capsule, their view is also more limited. An en bloc capsulectomy is called for when there are risks associated with opening the capsule, such as an implant rupture. In other cases, the implant and its entire capsule can be removed with a technique called complete capsulectomy. Furthermore, it’s also not always safe or practical to perform an en bloc capsulectomy. In cases where only a very thin layer of scar tissue formed around the implant or the capsule is closely fused to the chest muscle, for instance, attempting to remove the capsule intact can create more problems.
