Look no further! - Saint Petersburg, FL

Dr. Elias is a very experienced, knowledgeable and overall genuine human being! I felt comfortable with her treatment plan from start to finish; not once was I "left in the dark." Even during my personal 'mental moments' I was provided emotional support. Moreover, her staff is so overly inviting that they begin to feel like family. I'm in love with my results and recommend her practice 1000%!

So excited to say goodbye to 12yr old implants - Saint Petersburg, FL

I went from a 34b (with the left breast being an undeveloped a) to a 34d. After four pregnancies, two full term and twommiscarriages and twenty pounds of weight gain they are now a 34ddd or 34g depending on the bra. ...
