No one has time to lie around at homeanymore.”
Dr. Cummings says he is excited about the latest developments inplastic surgery procedures like the Rapid Recovery approach to breastaugmentation and looks forward to the future of aestheticenhancements as researchers and medical professionals continue topursue perfection in techniques and results. with the increase inpopularity and approval of cosmetic surgery, he says patients nowhave a host of innovative technology at their fingertips forenhancing their appearance and improving confidence.
