SZA Reveals Why She Removed Her Breast Implants

SZA had a breast augmentation earlier in her career but eventually decided to get her breast implants removed after finding out she was at a higher risk for breast cancer.

The Grammy-winning singer joined the SHE MD podcast on Friday (March 8) where she went in-depth on all things health, including her developing “painful” fibrosis after the breast surgery.


“When I got my boobs done, my doctor took out some of my fibrosis, but.. there was so much fibrosis, it was crazy,’” she explained. “And he took it out. And so, when I went back, a lot of the concerns were gone.”

“I like seeing somebody spiritual about it, specifically the breast cancer situation and the marker before I had the results of the biopsy and all that, I had talked to somebody, because I was like, ‘I got to figure out what’s going on in the higher realms.’”

SZA continued: “I have markers in my breast, like metal markers in my breast for these fibrosis, for these lumps or whatever, I’m not supposed to be getting breast implants. So basically, I put them in. They ended up hurting me. I have way too much scar tissue because my breasts are too dense, and I’m not supposed to have breast implants. And so I ended up getting extra fibrosis like with tissue, and I didn’t feel good and it was painful. So, I took them out, and now they’re just my boobs.”

The “Snooze” singer revealed her mother was diagnosed with breast cancer and her aunt received a mastectomy, which meant her family history put her at a higher risk of being diagnosed with cancer. Her mom has been clear of cancer now for seven years. Even with the genetic warning flags, she still “snuck and got [the implants] anyways.”

SZA was said to have a “53 percent” chance of developing breast cancer, which was cut to “27 percent” after getting the implants removed, according to SHE MD co-host and world-renowned OBGYN, Dr. Thais Aliabadi.
