Dr. Kevin Brenner on Breast Implant Illness, Implant Cancer, and Explant Surgery

Kevin Brenner, MD, is a board-certified general surgeon and plastic and reconstructive surgeon. He received his Bachelor of Science degree at the University of Wisconsin and his Medical Degree at Loyola. Dr. Brenner has a private practice in Beverly Hills, California, and has authored numerous chapters in plastic surgery textbooks.

Dr. Brenner is an expert in Breast Implant Illness and highly experienced in breast implant removal (also known as explant surgery) with total capsulectomies. He is also the first surgeon in the U.S. to develop and use a Holistic Breast Team to help patients along their healing journey.

In recent years, there has been a growing awareness of breast implant illness. I’ve seen numerous testimonials from women who experienced significant health decline after getting breast implants and who restored their health after breast implant removal.

In our interview, Dr. Brenner and I discuss breast implant illness, breast implant-associated cancers, and explant surgery. This is a highly informative interview. Enjoy!
