With breast implants being the #1 chosen cosmetic surgery for women worldwide, in fact 1 in every 26 women in America have breast implants. Yes it’s a lot more common that we think and therefore it’s a closet topic that’s become more and more discussed is.

Could your breast implants be contributing to your health? To explore this topic I’m joined by Emma Morris whom recently went through explant surgery (implant removal) herself to share on her journey both pre and post surgery as well as the experiences that lead to her making the final decision to have her implants explanted.

    I have had implants now for 8 years and have had Health Issues and ALOT of them for almost 3 years now! I went to a surgeon last year to chat about Explanting and I’ve been researching things for a long time – this may have just convinced me to go ahead! I also had NOTHING after breastfeeding 4 kids so the fear of going back to this is VERY real… but like you said – it doesnt define you!
