More women trading in large implants for smaller sizes
Demand is growing for "explant" procedures -- removal of implants altogether or in exchange for smaller sizes, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Demand grew by almost 10% from 2010 to 2014, and nearly 24,000 women had an explant procedure last year. "Surgeons are seeing a definite shift in the look many women are asking for, away from the very round, prominent 'stripper boob' toward something more in keeping with their natural shape," said American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery President-Elect Daniel Mills.
