Breast Augmentation Patient Melissa is Fit and Feminine
Melissa is a 28-year-old personal trainer who competes in cross-fit competitions. Melissa was previously a dedicated weightlifter and competed in the bodybuilding world. While Melissa is in really great shape, becoming so lean and muscular affected the size of her breasts. They became much smaller, and Melissa developed some loose skin from losing the fatty tissue.
“I just wanted to fill in what I had lost. In a sports bra my boobs were like pancakes. When you work out like I do, there’s always a fear of looking too masculine because of the muscle volume. I really thought that having larger breasts would not only help me look more feminine but also balance me out since I am curvy,” explained Melissa.

I knew that you could have surgery to correct it, but I was afraid that it would be too involved. I assumed it would take a lot of time for recovery and leave scars, but I found out that wasn’t true,” said Matt.

Liposuction for Men Helps Achieve a Great Physique
Men are having plastic surgery in record numbers. According to ASPS (American Society of Plastic Surgeons), in 2010 male cosmetic surgery increased 2% and men now account for 13% of all cosmetic surgical procedures.
There has always been more of a stigma about men undergoing cosmetic surgery. It was always thought to be just for actors or celebrities. Because of that many men opted for less invasive procedures in order to conceal their actions. Increasingly though, men have been coming clean about having surgery rather than lying or hiding their surgery.
