Words cannot express how pleased I am with Dr. Swank and his staff. I have always had one breast significantly larger than the other which made me very self conscious as a young woman. He repeatedly informed me they would never be exactly the same but he would make them as close as possible. After surgery, My breast are now symmetric and I feel comfortable in my own skin. I can wear the same cup bra!!! Thank you for everything and I will forever be grateful.
