December 05, 2018
  INTRODUCTION :   It has long been recognized that as we age, our skin loses its elasticity, loosens and is very often in excess. It is according to this principle that face lifts have been proposed for several decades. For a long time, facelifts have been the subject of various and varied technical proposals: several renowned surgeons have studied the issue in order to [...]

About breast reduction......
February 21, 2018
Breast reduction, commonly practiced, reduces breast volume. This procedure ensures a very nice shape while leaving a minimum of scars.

This technique usually keeps a nice, well curved [...]

The insertion route (through the armpits, nipple or sub-mammary fold) varies according to the surgeons' habits and beliefs, the patient's requests or her history.
