Performing Breast Augmentation for My Peers

On Sept. 5, I had the privilege of participating in the Sientra® Breast Implant Preceptorship. Sientra, one of the leading breast implant manufacturers in the country, pioneered the development of high-strength cohesive silicone gel implants, which have seen a massive rise in popularity for breast augmentation surgeries at my Louisville practice and around the nation.

Even the most state-of-the-art laser hair removal techniques do not deliver results overnight.
