Love my New Breasts! - Chapel Hill, NC

Uneven breasts from old augmentation on one side. My breasts were noticably different sizes and I had an augmentation done on one of them over 35 years ago. So he had to match them up from being uneven and having old skin stretched out. He listened to all my concerns, mostly about just wanting them to now match versus having boobs that looked augmented. I am extremely happy, the scars are...

Loved It~!

I had reg lipo AND smart lipo on inner...

Wonderful For First Timers but Would Not Recomend for Repairs or Replacements - Chapel Hill, NC

After years of researching and 4 Doctor Interviews I chose Dr. A based on his thorough explanations and the time he took with me at the initial visit. I went 300cc saline under the muscle I was satisfied with the results but was never completely happy. Then after 3.5 years I suffered a deflation.
