Narcissism is the pursuit of gratification from vanity or egotistic admiration of one’s own attributes. The term originated from Greek mythology, where the young Narcissus fell in love with his own image reflected in a pool of water.

The establishment providednot only haircutting, styling and colouring, but also make-up application, tanning facilities, col-lagen implants and botox injections.

A well designed Nutricion Management program takes place over a typical 5-7month time frame. It is important that during this time the patient benefits from effective Psychology so that the successful patient later learns to accept their New Body.
