Feels Like An Adult Woman

A Woman’s Path To Self-Certainty And Independence

Angel had to grow up quickly and take on adult responsibilities at a young age. Yet, at 27, she still felt like a kid because she still looked like a kid. Her decision to get a breast augmentation is just one of many in her journey to take ownership of her life and future.

Why I Wanted Aesthetic Plastic Surgery

I had a 12-year-old boy’s chest. There was no breast tissue at all. I didn't feel like a woman. I felt like a kid.
