Scar Revision and Liposuction of Axillae and Bra Strap Area. Arlington Heights, IL

Funny you posted this today!! I just had a scar revision yesterday by my trusted local Plastics guy. I just didn't want to travel to Texas for scar revision. I may post an update to my review, but may do a separate review for the... READ COMMENT
