NBC NATIONAL NEWS — Cosmetic breast surgery at breakfast time and socializing by dinner?
A new technique gives women larger breasts without the long recovery, but it's not for everyone.
Dr. Ashkan Ghavami is one of the only few surgeons in the nation performing "flash breast augmentations".
Only certain women qualify.
"It's best for someone that doesn't need a lift and just needs a straightforward breast augmentation," he advises.
There is no bleeding, narcotics, or down time.
"If everything goes well and her anatomy cooperates, then she should be able to recover and go out to dinner within a couple of hours," Dr. Ghavami explains.
