When a woman wants to enhance her physical appearance, there are many avenues she may want to pursue. One can be as simple as a makeover while others might include diet and exercise. Sometimes those solutions may not be enough and more involved measures are designed in order to change their image. One of the ways to enhance physical appearances is to have her breast size increased. This is known as augmentation mammoplasty or breast augmentation. The decision to have breast enlargement surgery to change or improve one’s shape isn’t made lightly. Once the choice is finalized, a woman expects a positive outcome that will make her feel beautiful and boost her self-esteem. Unfortunately, and for reasons that are not clearly understood, sometimes something goes wrong and the patient may develop a condition that would jeopardize not only her appearance but her health.

In some cases, after some time from the surgery has passed, capsules can form within the breast when the body is having a negative reaction to the implant. This may occur because the immune system may be rejecting the type of implant that was used during surgery. These harmful capsules can contain silicone shell fragments, silicone gel, bacteria, calcification, and inflammatory cells that have been mobilized by the immune system that reacts to various elements of the implant. Research has shown that removing the implant does not cause the capsule to disappear on its own. Once this condition is diagnosed it is very important to the patient’s health to have it surgically removed as soon as possible.

BREAST EXPLANT WITH EN BLOC CAPSULECTOMY
Since the sole removal of the implant will not alleviate the patient’s condition, it is important to take out the implant and the capsule together. This procedure would relieve the discomfort and health risk the patient is having and is the best option for the patient. This operation is referred to as Breast Explant with En Bloc Capsulectomy. When the operation is performed the capsule and the old implant are carefully removed at the same time. Once this portion of the operation is complete, a new implant is inserted in a fresh pocket which is located behind the pectoralis muscle. Polyurethane coated implants, which are hopefully more accepted by the body, are usually the recommended replacement implant for this procedure. Unfortunately, the cost of this operation may be more expensive than the initial breast augmentation, however, the good news is that the expected recovery time is normally about the same as the initial breast enlargement surgery.
