What to consider prior to a breast reduction
16 June 2015
With Breast Surgery currently one of the most requested cosmetic surgical procedure, it's important that patients understand exactly what they can expect from it. Cosmetic Surgery is not a decision to be entered into lightly, so it's a wise idea to equip yourself with as much know-how as you can before agreeing to surgery. 1.

Your goals need to be realisti...

The truth is that we all have bits we don't love but when they impact our ability to function in the world confidently, then these feelings can impact our physical and emotional health. We felt this video was worth watching. "I've often thought that if I had a daughter that I would build her esteem such that she'd be a little powerhouse of confidence. The thing is, children are so savvy. They pick up on body language, facial nuances, inflection, and they over hear conversations not meant for their sweet little ears." So this Mothers Day think about the message you are sending and celebrate your differences large an...
