5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Best Breasts - Philadelphia, PA

Dr. Bucky is an artist! My breasts are so natural that most people do not know they aren't God given. I had the procedure in 2005 and still LOVING the work that Dr. Bucky has done! I even breast fed my baby for a year and no problems - I couldn't be happier. Healing process was not bad - I had them inserted through my armpits so you cannot even see the scars unless I was to point them out.

Bilateral Mastectomy and my Experience with Lymphatic Drainage Massage. Ardmore, PA

Dr. Bucky called me the day I came home from my bi-lateral mastectomy. When I complained that I hurt, he immediately told me to go see Dan Stokes for a lymphatic drainage massage because Dan would make me feel better. Dr. Bucky was right. The massage is extremely gentle and one wonders how it can help someone in fairly severe pain. Perhaps there is such a thing as "magic hands" because Dan...
