Chrissy Teigen Shared Her Breast Implant Removal Scars on Instagram. Here’s What a Plastic Surgeon Says You Can Expect After The Procedure.
“These [vertical scars] are mastopexy scars,” says Dr. Melissa Doft, a board-certified plastic surgeon in New York City (not Teigen’s doctor), and she notes that doing a breast lift with implant removal is not at all unusual. Having implants placed stretches the skin around the breasts, so when they are removed, the skin is naturally left more saggy. “If you have very small implants and were small-breasted to start with, and you didn’t go through any life changes, like pregnancy or massive weight loss, then you can sometimes just take out the implants. You may have a little bit of sagginess, but it will look pretty natural,” Dr. Doft explains.
