Shedding the Stigma Surrounding Cosmetic Surgery

I'm on a personal mission to get rid of the stigma that still surrounds cosmetic surgery in many regions. Why am I on this mission? A small surgery changed my life, and I have never regretted it. I was a very shy child with little confidence due to my protruding ears. It sounds like such a small problem to many people, but it affected me and my self esteem greatly. I saved up in high school while working a part-time job, and as soon as I could afford it, I got my parents to agree to let me have my ears "pinned back" when I was 16. My confidence skyrocketed immediately, and I finally began enjoying life for the first time. I want to help others facing similar problems know that they are not alone, and I hope I can touch many lives with my new blog!

A breast lift will usually cost about $4,700, so also talk to your health insurance provider. 

Make sure that you are able to heal after your breast lift

After you get a breast lift, make sure that you are constantly icing down your chest to get rid of swelling. Speak to your doctor to know when you are able to get back to your regular lifestyle of fitness and strenuous activity.
