A not infrequent request by male clients is the “six pack” stomach and if there is a cosmetic procedure to enhance/produce it. The look of a “six pack” stomach is created by a very well trained midline muscle group – two about 10cm wide muscles on each side of the midline running from the chest […]
My history of breast reduction is probably typical and representative of most women seeking breast reduction surgery. I am thirty years old and have had large breasts from my teenage years.
