Implant removal with Capsulectomy

Whether it is because of a change in lifestyle, weight gain, or health concerns, some women may decide to have their implants removed. Most women simply want breast implant devices removed from their bodies. If the implant is a saline-filled device, it may be possible to remove it in the office under a local anesthetic. If the implant is a silicone-filled device, it needs to be removed in an outpatient surgical facility under general anesthesia. Some women want the implants removed, along with the scar capsule that surrounds the implants, known as an implant removal with capsulectomy. This is sometimes referred to as an en bloc implant removal.
