She disclosed that her mother had been diagnosed with breast cancer, and her aunt underwent a mastectomy, leading her to discover a 53% lifetime risk of developing the disease.

Initially opting for breast implants, SZA encountered complications due to fibrosis, characterized by the thickening and scarring of connective tissue in her breasts. Despite some fibrosis removal during the initial procedure, she discovered a substantial amount remaining, describing it as “crazy.”

In conversation with Dr. Aliabadi, SZA admitted she should have consulted a doctor before getting implants, considering her heightened breast cancer risk. She confessed to “sneaking” and getting the procedure anyway.

Metal markers in her breast indicated fibrosis, a condition not recommended for someone with her risk factors. The implants caused pain and excessive scar tissue due to her dense breasts, leading her to the conclusion that breast implants were not suitable for her.

SZA’s choice to remove the implants stemmed from the discomfort, pain, and the realization that they were ill-suited for her given her family history and fibrosis. Expressing relief post-removal, she noted feeling better and highlighted the resolution of many concerns.

This revelation emphasizes the importance of considering personal health risks and family history when deciding on plastic surgery. SZA’s story underscores the complexities of navigating one’s body and underscores the significance of prioritizing health and well-being over aesthetic choices.
