What is an En Bloc Resection for breast implant removal for Breast Implant Illness: BII?
En Bloc Resection, or Explant Surgery, for Breast Implant Illness BII is the removal of the breast implant and the surrounding scar tissue, i.e capsule, as one piece. The capsule is meticulously dissected from the surrounding breast tissue with the implant inside. The capsule is never opened thus the implant and toxins are never exposed to the body. This en bloc resection technique removes the implant, implant capsule and any toxins within the capsule from the body.
