Breast surgery and body contouring-
Great restoration of breast and body aesthetics is based upon achieving harmonious balance with elegance. Key to great outcomes is gentleness and accuracy which then results in minimal discomfort and surprisingly minimal recovery. Dr Allegra uses the most modern and advanced concepts and techniques with breast augmentation, breast reduction, breast lift, and combined lift/ augmentation.
