Everyone has a six pack. For most however, this grouping of abdominal muscles is somewhat obscured by a layer of subcutaneous fat. This fat is often resistant to diet and exercise, particularly as you get older, and even active, athletic, and healthy individuals may never fully experience a completely chiseled midsection without some assistance.

Breast lift surgery improves the appearance of the bust by removing excess and unnecessary skin and firming underlying tissue for a perkier and more youthful look.
