Breast implant removal is a surgical procedure performed when a woman decides she no longer wants her implants. The surgery can address concerns like implant malfunction, capsular contracture, and dissatisfaction with breast size. It's also commonly performed on women who have experienced sagging due to aging, pregnancy, or weight fluctuations. If a woman chooses not to replace her implants, a breast lift can be done at the same time to address skin that may have been stretched. LEARN MORE >

I got my implants in 2000 when I was a fitness trainer and extremely low bodyfat (10%).

I consulted with Dr. Park about 5 weeks back and felt very calm after leaving my appointment.
