About En Bloc Implant Removal
Removing your breast implants is a personal choice, and it can be done in several different ways. The least invasive way is to simply make a small incision and remove the implants. This can be done under local anesthesia and is a very short procedure. However, if you desire to have the capsules (scar tissue) removed, this can be done with what's called an "en bloc" (in-one-piece) resection.
Dr. Suzanne Trott in Beverly Hills, CA regularly meets with women who wish to have their breast implants removed via en bloc. Sometimes, a breast lift is needed following implant removal based upon the size and type of the implants and how much your skin was stretched. A lift can often help remove sagging or excess skin, which can remain after implant removal. If you wish to have your breast implants removed for whatever reason, contact Suzanne A. Trott, MD FACS to schedule your consultation.
"Dr. Trott has changed my life! I found her by getting recommendations from about 4 girlfriends who had the same procedure I was going in for. All were happy with their results, so I knew she was definitely someone I wanted to meet with. As soon as I met her for my initial consultation, I knew she was the surgeon for me. She is beyond friendly and warm and I knew I would be in good hands. She really took her time with me, showing me additional photos, thoroughly explaining the procedure to me. Aside from me really liking her work, I was happy with the fact that she only performs one surgery a day so she can take her time. I had met with another surgeon who would have slotted me as his 4th surgery for the day. Her surgical team is amazing, I didn't have one complication. She came to visit me at the aftercare facility and makes herself available to her patients by cellphone. Addy, her office manager, is so friendly and helpful. I am still healing but am already so happy with the results! Everyone I know tells me how amazing I look and that the work looks so natural. I literally cannot say enough good things about Dr. Trott. She is THE BEST!!!"- S.S. / Yelp / Jan 05, 2018
"Dr. Trott is incredible! She came highly recommended from my OBGYN. If you have any questions about a procedure, book a consultation, she and her team will go over EVERYTHING and answer every single question you have (and I had a lot). I felt very confident about my surgery, what to expect before and after, and what the recovery would be like. I am so happy with my results and have never..."- L. / RealSelf / Feb 12, 2019
"I recently had a "mommy makeover" with Dr. Trott. I've always worked out hard and eaten healthy food, but as a mom of two boys, working full time, I was not happy with how my body looked. Dr. Trott performed a breast reduction with a lift as well as some liposuction around my abdominal area and back. Dr. Trott had been recommended to me by a friend who also happens to be a surgical nurse, and I trusted her recommendation and I'm so glad I did. This procedure literally changed my whole attitude and increased my confidence tremendously. I used to hide my breasts with baggy shirts and minimizer bras. I had neck and shoulder pain constantly. Those issues have completely disappeared. My husband always said he loved me and looked great all the time, but now, he says I look like I did before I had our children and he's thrilled. The only thing I'm disappointed with is that it took me so long to make this decision."- S. / Healthgrades / Jul 19, 2020

Every aspect, from the initial consultation to seeing the final results has far exceeded my expectations. You've changed my life in so many ways!

I had complete confidence in my decision from my first conversation with you. And now that I can see the results of your hard work and talent I am completely in awe and couldn't have dreamed of it being any better. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"- K.J. / Yelp / Apr 26, 2020

The best candidates for en bloc breast implant removal are those who want to have their entire capsule and implants removed in one piece without the pocket being entered. Some patients simply no longer wish to have enlarged breasts, some may be concerned with breast implant-related illness, and some may simply wish for a change. Whatever the reason, you are a candidate for breast removal if you are a healthy adult who wishes to have their implants removed via en bloc. During your first consultation, Dr. Trott will determine whether you are an ideal candidate and discuss your options for surgery.
During the breast implant removal procedure, the implants will be taken out and scar tissue might also have to be eliminated. Scar tissue is not uncommon after receiving implants and will need to be removed if it is affecting the form of your breast or causing discomfort. After the implants have been removed, Dr. Trott may perform a fat transfer, breast lift or both, depending on what was discussed during your consultation. Additionally, there are a number of choices to restore volume following an implant removal to enhance the shape of your breast.
What to Expect
An en bloc capsulectomy is performed under anesthesia and usually takes about 2 – 3 hours. In most cases, recovery for this procedure is one week. In some cases, drains need to be placed for about one week, after which the patient can resume regular activity.
The recovery period will vary for each individual, depending on the repair needed following the procedure. After the surgery, Dr. Trott will provide post-procedure directions and might recommend additional procedures if you have opted to re-augment your breast. For the first couple of weeks, patients will experience swelling and bruising and must restrict strenuous exercise until instructed otherwise. However, patients are encouraged to get up and gradually move around since it helps with blood circulation.
