WHY I DECIDED FOR PLASTIC SURGERY
I focus on the field of aesthetic plastic surgery because of the possibility of helping people who suffer from what nature has given them too much or, conversely, little. These people suffer a lot mentally and I can help them through aesthetic and surgical procedures.
