5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

33, 2 Kids - Hawthorn, AU

Never felt comfortable in bathers, singlets, dresses. Always had the dream of having fuller breasts and being able enjoy summer in dresses and not covering up.

50 Year Old in Need of a Tweek - Hawthorn, AU

Looking tired and heavy around the eyes, I decided to get a couple of opinions and did much research (over 18months). For me, it was a big consideration and I was concerned as you hear of some bad outcomes. So I looked and asked questions, took my time and found the right doctor with the best attitude. I am so happy with the results. The first time I put on makeup my eyes just popped. They...

I had been researching Rhinoplasty on and off for a few years, it had been something I thought about most of my life.

56 Year Old Very Heavy Droopy Breasts. Melbourne, AU

Following many years of discomfort in regard to heavy breasts 22DD I made the decision to follow up with Surgery.
