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 din't like his assessment so I looked for other physicians. I was referred to... READ MORE

32 y/o with10 year old 475cc Mentor saline implants under the muscle - explanting primarily for health reasons

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