Breast Augmentation - Saint Louis, MO

I went to Dr. Kofkoff for breast augmentation. I often thought about having it done to help my body be more proportionate and to enchance my breasts after having children. I had very little discomfort after the procedure and was back to my normal schedule within a couple days.
