For a variety of factors, some patients choose to have their breast implants removed. This can be a decision that is made because of personal reasons, aesthetic reasons, or health reasons. No matter what is behind the choice, Dr. Kaveh Alizadeh has the skills and expertise to help. 

What is en bloc capsule removal?

En bloc capsule removal is surgical procedure that removes the breast implants and the breast implant capsule that has formed around the implant as single unit. En bloc, which means all together, refers to the extraction of the capsule as well, which is a layer of scar tissue that forms around the implant. Every patient who has undergone breast implants will have capsules. Dr. Alizadeh’s en bloc capsule removal surgery will safely remove the entire capsule while keeping the anatomy of the breasts intact.

Why undergo the procedure?

The decision to have en bloc capsule removal performed can be a personal choice or a decision that is made for health concerns. A patient may be experiencing complications from previous surgery, hardening of the breast tissue, infection, or implant rupture. Or it could be as simple as the desire to return the breasts back to their natural size. No matter what the issue may be, Dr. Alizadeh will take wonderful care of you. 

Day of treatment

En bloc capsule removal surgery can typically be performed under local anesthesia, and will take anywhere from one to three hours. The majority of patients are able to return home after the procedure, but will require someone to drive them home.


After your en bloc capsule removal surgery, you may be given a compression garment and drains that you will wear for two to three days. You will be able to return to regular daily tasks within a few days, but avoid any strenuous activity.
