  World of Wonder is unveiling the trailer for?Explant?ahead of the documentary’s premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival on June 13.

  The film, directed by Emmy-winning filmmaker?Jeremy Simmons?(The Last Beekeeper), follows media personality and?RuPaul’s Drag Race?judge Michelle Visage in her journey to find well-being via “explant surgery,” the removal of her breast implants.

  Visage, who has had breast implants most of her adult life, believes they are making her sick — and she’s not alone. Hundreds of thousands of women have come forward with similar beliefs, clashing with the medical establishment’s claims that implants are completely safe.

  It also takes a deep dive into the stranger-than-fiction history of breast implants. From interviews with the first-ever recipient of the modern-day implant to a confession from a whistleblower, the film shows how complications and autoimmune issues have shadowed implants for decades.

  Explant?is produced by World of Wonder co-founders Randy Barbato?and Fenton Bailey,?with executive producers Michelle Visage and David Case.
