  1. Now I have a serious doubt… I am not kidding. Can a woman really breast feed after implant? And if that is possible, the new born will be consuming endocrine-disruptor eventually???

    1. It’s not just about breastfeeding. Anything a pregnant woman absorbs *during* pregnancy is also “transmitted” in-utero to the foetus. “Dealing” with endocrine-disruptor at “development” stage can modify some cells etc. to a no-way back point…

  2. Hi there, I’m just wondering how much or about how much a breast lift and augmentation would cost altogether and if anyone knows all of the payment options and any other details… Thanks…. Cheers for a terrific post.
