How are the Breast Surgeries Performed?

The need for breast procedures often arises for two reasons:

  • Reconstructive: Reconstructing the breasts due to breast cancer.

Breasts are considered an essential element of a woman’s femininity. About 2 million women worldwide have breast procedures to change the size and symmetry of their breasts each year.
