Get ready for Explant, our film directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker Jeremy Simmons, which follows Michelle Visage in her journey to find well-being via “explant surgery,” the removal of her breast implants. It will premiere on Paramount Plus on Wednesday, December 15th.
Visage, who has had breast implants most of her adult life, believes they are making her sick — and she’s not alone. Hundreds of thousands of women have come forward with similar beliefs, clashing with the medical establishment’s claims that implants are completely safe.
The film also takes a deep dive into the stranger-than-fiction history of breast implants. From interviews with the first-ever recipient of the modern-day implant to a confession from a whistleblower, Explant shows how complications and autoimmune issues have shadowed implants for decades.
Explant is produced by Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey, with executive producers Michelle Visage and David Case.
