The perfect breast?

perfectLarge, small, pointy, flat….. Breasts are one of the most controversial parts of the body, and many people, both women and men, have specific notions about what they consider to be the absolute finest or best.

Women have many different reasons for coming to us about their breasts. Some have problems due to breasts that are too large and that cause backpain or seem to be in the way. Others are distressed because they feel that they hardly have any breasts at all, and they feel unfeminine. Many would like to restore the appearance of their breasts after breastfeeding their children. All women have different preferences and special requirements, which we carefully discuss during the pre-operation consultation dialogue.
