The En Bloc Capsulectomy procedure withdraws the implant and the capsule at the same time allowing the breast tissue and muscles to settle back to their original position for a more natural appearance. The expert surgeon here at the Plastic Surgery Institute are specialists, having successfully performed many En Bloc Capsulectomy surgeries. We have returned to our patients the feeling of natural softness and healthy breasts.
En Bloc Capsulectomy is a surgical procedure that removes a breast implant and part, or all, of the breast implant capsule. This is usually called for due to complications resulting from previous implant surgery, or when a patient simply desires to no longer have breast implants and wishes to have them extracted from the body. If you are tired of your breast implants, whatever the reason, you can choose to have them removed by the experts at the Plastic Surgery Institute with an En Bloc Capsulectomy in Beverly Hills.
“For cases where there is a suspicion, evidence, or a belief that the implants are causing symptoms, we are a proponent and specialist at performing En-Bloc Capsulectomy. I do many of these cases because I am one of the go-to experts in the country at this procedure. In that operation, I remove the capsule around the implant and the implant together, in a single unit. I leave the breast tissue and chest muscles alone. This ensures more complete removal of all tissue and material relating to breast implants and provides a “fresh start”. Many of my patients opt for a breast lift at the same time.” - Dr. Ordon
A Beverly Hills En Bloc Capsulectomy can provide the following benefits:
En Block is a French term, meaning as a whole, regarding the removal of silicone and breast implants and its capsule as one unit. The En Bloc Capsulectomy surgeon cuts around this entity with the capsule enclosing the implant and takes it out without causing any contamination to the body. This procedure allows the silicone to stay inside the capsule while being removed, preventing chemicals and bacteria from leaking inside the body and causing health problems.
Capsulectomy, or a partial capsulectomy, is a procedure that fixes capsular contracture and removes only part of the scar tissue.
Total capsulectomy removes all the scar tissue, including the ones around the implant along the ribs and lungs. Typically, the procedure calls for the surgeon to remove the implants first and then remove all of the capsule tissue. A capsulotomy is a procedure that can be done open or closed. The open option features the capsule being partially or completely taken out through an incision within the breast area. The closed choice has the surgeon break down the capsule tissue while leaving the implant in place, a procedure that has a greater risk of rupturing the implant.
After the surgery, there can be sagging issues to deal with because the skin has been stretched to accommodate the implant.
The patient has several choices: get new implants, a breast lift to remove excess skin and reposition the nipple and areola for a bouncier appearance, or fat grafting to replace the volume in the breast.

Your breasts will be wrapped in a compression garment, bandage, and post-surgical bra following your surgery. Drains will be removed about a week after your procedure.
It is normal for your chest and breasts to be swollen and feel sore for a few weeks. You will feel some discomfort after your surgery. Pain medications for relief may be prescribed to you. Swelling goes down over the first month. It will be best to avoid strenuous physical activities, especially in the upper body, for at least three weeks to allow for the swelling to go down. Avoid any activity that increases blood pressure and limit the use of your chest and arms for two to six weeks. Make sure to report any bleeding, infection, or redness of the breast to your doctor.
At Ordon & Chopra patient health and safety are always our top priority. As you may be aware, a recall was recently issued for specific implants and we would like to take this moment to impart some facts and hopefully provide some peace of mind regarding this subject. The first thing to know is that this recall is applicable only to a limited number of textured implant products.
Ninety-five percent of implants sold in the US are smooth and completely unaffected. The most common applications for textured implants include an above-average physically active lifestyle, a sloping rib bone structure, and/or reconstructive breast procedures. Even rarer among this small subset of textured implant recipients is the instance of associated ailment. The main infirmity reported in connection with these implants is BIA-ALCL, the remission rate for which is close to 90%. While we in no way wish to trivialize this matter we do want to convey the facts and hopefully assuage any panic. If you have any symptoms or concerns at all please do not hesitate to contact our office and we will be happy to assist.
During your En Bloc Capsulectomy consultation, your medical history and past surgeries will be reviewed by your doctor. Please provide a list of any medications you are currently taking or have taken recently and let us know if you are allergic to any particular medications.
