Hi there, I’m Dr. Amanda Savage Brown.
I’m a scientist turned women’s self-acceptance therapist & coach whose worked in women’s wellness for over two decades.
In 2018, I removed my breast implants and recovered from undiagnosed breast implant illness.
Now, In addition to my private psychotherapy practice, I also companion women through the mental, emotional, and social challenges of breast implants and their removal.
As you may have heard, breast implants are not lifetime or problem-free devices. At some point, you may want or need to remove yours, and you may feel uneasy every step of the way. Even if you want to be implant-free, you may struggle as you move toward explant and as you adjust to your body afterwards.
Because there’s more than meets the eye with breast implants; there’s a deeply felt inner journey as well.
My goal is to help you move through your breast implant or explant journey on your terms, without continued domination by society’s “rules” about women and breasts. Defying those rules can feel threatening. But you don’t have to white-knuckle your way through explant’s harder-to-see inner journey. No matter how difficult your thoughts and feelings may be, or where you are in your journey, I help you mindfully reconnect with what matters deep down to you and then use those things to guide your way.
I specialize in helping women find their waybefore, during, and after breast implant removal.
