Breast surgery: express your femininity
Through time, the female breast has always aroused a great deal of interest. This should not come as a surprise, since a woman’s breast has always been a symbol of femininity, maternity and sexuality. Those who used to hide themselves under lacy fineries are now showing themselves whether in the world of fashion, on the beach or in the media.
Becoming more and more critical, we dare speak candidly about our perceptions of a perfect breast and anatomical shortcomings. It is not easy for a woman to cope with unloved breasts.
Unattractive breasts can destroy a woman’s self-fulfilment and identity. Whether your breasts are too small, too large, have fallen or are malformed, it is reassuring to know that aesthetic surgery can help.
About Breast surgeries:
A Lesson in Anatomy
The breast is composed of fat tissue, mammary glands (breast tissue) and fibrous connective tissue. Its volume and shape depend on several factors such as the amount of each different type of tissue, the genetic heritage, age, elasticity of the skin and previous pregnancies.
Before even beginning surgical procedures, it’s essential to carry out a physical examination. The latter is used to evaluate the various factors that will influence Dr. Mario F. Bernier in the choice of surgical techniques and procedures. In addition, the purpose of the evaluation is to verify if the surgery you wish to receive is appropriate for your condition and state of health.
