My PA Does Capsulectomy, Not En Bloc, I Have Cfs and Will This Be Enough to Get All Scar Tissue and Silicone Out?

Capsulectomy, Not En Bloc for gel leak?


I feel that an en bloc resection is a more reliable way of removing all the capsule with the least chance of leaking gel. All the best.

Need complete capsulectomy with implant removal if ruptured


If you had a ruptured silicone gel implant then the best surgical options is to perform a complete capsulectomy.  This is the only way to remove all of the microscopic silicone oil particles that are embedded in the capsule.
