Grand Total for everything is $11,443 (I paid $12,500 in May 2012) This is really getting expensive. I told my husband I'm so sorry I didn't do all this the first time, May 2012.

80 Year Old with 60 Year Old Implants! - Texas

Ruptured Gel Implants Removed and Replaced with Natrelle Style 20 450cc with Strattice - Lubbock, TX

He was able to lift them some by cutting the areale out in a crescent, then cut around it to make it smaller and round and replaced it... READ MORE

Mini Tummy Tuck No Muscle Repair with Liposuction of the Flank Area Also Breast Augmentation Redo - Lubock, TX
