  • 3 Reasons You Should Schedule a 10 Year Reunion with Your Breast Surgeon

    When was the last time you spoke to your plastic surgeon? We’re not offended that you don’t call us as frequently as your primary care physician, but we too have a stake in your physical well-being and long-term results.
