When you are undergoing the breast explant surgery, which is also called breast removal, your doctor will remove the implant. He will actually remove the tissue layer, called a capsule formed around the breast. The technique is called En Bloc breast implant removal when this capsule can be removed in one piece with the implant remaining inside the capsule. 

The incisions during the surgery are made in the breast fold under the breast when en bloc is planned. This is done to add enough room and working space so that the capsule can be removed safely. 

The doctor will check the feasibility and as discussed earlier with the patient; the doctor will try to achieve maximum aesthetics of the breasts after the surgery.
