huge boobs and keloid skin
I am now 27 and have had a problem with my boobs being so big since I was 17. I have in the last 2 years tried to get a reduction but was rejected from all sides, especially by medical aid. Now I am trying to raise money to have it done privately. I have keloid skin so the last surgeon I saw suggested liposuction of the breasts as opposed to the normal cutting and reshaping to avoid the freaky scars that would result in the cutting. I need a second opinion on how safe and effective this procedure can be and how much would that cost as opposed to the normal way? Are there any good surgeons in Gauteng that can handle this?
