breast augmentation
Dear doc,
I am 26 years old, I am considering having breast augmentation, I am really flat chested and feel that surgery would inprove my self esteem greatly. Where do I start looking for a surgeon and what questions should I ask?

Dear Libby
please use a plastic surgeon that is part of the association of plastic surgeons - see under address book

You have to go for an examination first and ask the doctor for a quote of what he is going to ask you. If you have to pay it all by yourself discuss with him a possible monthly payback fee.
Talk to him about the different kinds of breast prosthesis and read up about it before you go:
