Breast Illness / En-block


What is En-BIoc lmplant Removal?

En-bloc is the removal of Breast implants and capsule that has formed around the implant. The goal is to remove the entire capsule safely and maintain the anatomy of the breast. Typically this procedure allows us to use the same previous breast augmentation incision site. There is only one way to know if implant removal with total capsulectomy is right for you and that is by scheduling a consultation with Dr. Lettieri. It’s important for Dr. Lettieri to understand why you want your implants removed and if additional! procedures would be needed to meet your expectations.

Options may include Micro Fat Grafting to the breast or breast lift to help with sagging skin. Due to skin stretching to accommodate the implant, Sagging or drooping is common after implant removal.


Dr. Lettieri is also highly skilled and expert in other surgical and non-surgical cosmetic procedures.  Dr. Lettieri was one of the first surgeons in the United States to use lasers extensively in cosmetic facial surgery.  Please visit our cosmetic plastic surgery website for information on other procedures.
