Mariel Hemingway on Her Breast Implant Removal


Roughly 30 years ago, Mariel Hemingway, 49, had breast augmentation surgery that jeopardized her health. Now the actress wants to warn others of the potential dangers of plastic surgery.

"I actually had silicone in my blood," said Mariel. "So I did hyperbaric oxygen treatment to turn the silicone into silicone citrate so it could pass, but it took a long time to get that out of my system."

Mariel and her boyfriend Bobby Williams launched in part to educate potential plastic surgery candidates of the risks that accompany putting foreign objects into your body.

"People have a right to know what the truth is about these things," Mariel said. "You can make any choice you want ... but know when you put plastic in your body you might have a reaction. Maybe you won't, and some don't. But you might."
