Dr Joseph Rizk only uses the highest quality breast implants that have a 10-year warranty. Unfortunately, not all surgeons are equally qualified; and especially in the case of overseas budget surgeons inferior products and techniques can be used resulting in patients needing to remove their implants. In other cases having children, rapid weight loss, medical issues or concerns over breast implant associated anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL) can be the driver behind implant removal.
