Wuhrer wrote about the experience In "Glamour" magazine, stating, " My right breast — filled with one of my silicone breast implants — had encapsulated, meaning that the scar tissue underneath the implant has turned rock hard and, in my case, is now pushing my right breast twice as high as my left. My doctor said it's the most common complication of breast implants, although it affects only about 5 percent of recipients. Unfortunately, I'm on the wrong side of the statistic … I look deformed." She added that after she had her breast implants removed, she felt "younger and very proud to be in this body."
