I Love New York star Tiffany Pollard removed her breast implants after causing her headache, nausea, and anxiety.
The 37 year old was originally on hit E! reality show Botched in 2015, to reduce her breasts and improve her nose job.
She visited surgeons Dr. Terry Dubrow and Dr. Paul Nassif complaining about breast implant disease (BII) in the sixth premiere of the show.
The doctors decided to fully extract the silicone implants because they feared that they caused numerous nasty side effects.

BII is thought to bully thousands of women worldwide and can cause chest pain and inexplicable fatigue, along with a host of other side effects.
However, since it is not a medically recognized condition, BII cannot be officially diagnosed.
Doctors believe it can be caused by the body's inflammatory response to the silicone implants.
Pollard revealed that she suffered from headache, anxiety, stomach pain and concentration problems.
But she said: & # 39; Many doctors just blew me away and seemed like they thought, "Hey, you have an anxiety attack". & # 39;
& # 39; I believe my breast implants really make me sick, & # 39; she said before she went to the doctors for the second time.
The reality star revealed that she was fired for years by doctors who thought her symptoms were psychological.
But after researching BII in her spare time, she found she had & # 39; 99 percent & # 39; of the same symptoms.
Dr. Dubrow immediately recognized her symptoms and revealed that the fastest growing part of his practice was taking breast implants for patients who think they may have a breast implant disease.

Four years ago, Dr. Nassif Pollard gave a new nose, while Dr. Dubrow updated her implants.
Pollard added: & # 39; He did it perfectly, but when I look at my breasts, they literally remind me of Snoopy's ears on my chest. & # 39;
The reality star revealed that she had undergone plastic surgery for the first time 13 years ago and was visibly nervous when the surgeons said the implants had to be removed completely.
She said: & # 39; Oh my god, removing the implants is so scary for me because I lose an energy. & # 39;
But an operation with Dr. Dubrow was a success on all fronts, and twelve weeks later Pollard celebrated her new look with new enthusiasm.
& # 39; Thanks to Dr. Dubrow, I no longer feel sick and the girls are now naturally abundant & she said.
& # 39; I would have done this 10 years ago if I knew how wonderful I would feel today. & # 39;
British fans will remember Pollard from her stint at Celebrity Big Brother season 17 in 2016.
She was fourth in the reality show, but became a hit with fans after a notorious notion in which she believed that participant David Gest had died of cancer in the house.
It turned out that the housemates discussed the death of David Bowie, the former husband of Pollard & fellow colleague Angie Bowie.
IS BREAST IMPLANT DISEASE REAL?
Neither the NHS nor the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) recognize a single condition called breast implant disease.
However, they offer long lists of possible – and publicly known – side effects of breast implants.
Implants are not designed to last a lifetime, the FDA says, and the longer a woman has the implants in her body, the greater the risk of complications.
Complications occur in approximately one percent of all patients and can occur at any time after surgery.
In addition to changes in the appearance and feel of the breast, some possible side effects include pain, infection, swelling or irritation, swollen lymph nodes, skin rashes, or bruising.
Reported symptoms of BII include fatigue, chest pain, hair loss and headache, chills, light sensitivity, chronic pain, anxiety, brain fog, sleep disorders and depression.
The NHS urges all women who suffer from side effects to contact the clinic where they had the implants installed and report this via an official yellow card, to add information about the safety of implants.
