Thanks for writing to health care magic.

I request you to not to loose hope and depressed.

Please keep a positive attitude in life. I can understand the difficult time you are going through.

Get yourself examined by your doctor. At least a cosmetic surgery with implantation should be possible.

Hope this helps.
Take care.
