En Bloc Capsulectomy, French for “as a whole” is a surgical method where both the breast implant and the tissue surrounding it are removed as a single unit, often used to address implant-related issues.
Why Might En Bloc Capsulectomy be Necessary?
When you have surgery that involves an implant, breast or otherwise, the body’s natural reaction is to form scar tissue around the implant; in most cases, this scar tissue is very thin and will not change the feel or shape of the breast but in some cases, the scar tissue is thick and will contract which makes the breast hard.

This procedure involves removing the entire capsule (scar tissue that naturally forms around the implant) and the implant together in one cohesive unit. En Bloc Capsulectomy may be necessary to address various breast implant concerns.
