Capsulectomy is the surgical removal of the hardened scar tissue, also known as a capsule. However, when all the scar tissue is removed, including the scar tissue lining around the implant and most likely the implant as well, it is referred to as total capsulectomy. In total capsulectomy, the breast implant is removed first, following the remaining scar tissue, also known as the capsule surrounding the implant. However, there is a chance of the toxins from being released into the body; therefore, a board-certified surgeon is required to make sure which technique is best for you.
Whereas, en-bloc capsulectomy is advised, as will be discussed by the surgeon when there are other complications associated with capsulectomy itself. En-bloc capsulectomy is the capsule with an enclosed implant, and during the surgical procedure, they are removed as a whole, demanding a larger incision compared to capsulectomy.
