Have you considered non-surgical or “minimally invasive” options, and how do they compare?
Surgery is a big decision. As with any decision, it is important to consider all of the alternatives. While there are a number of effective treatments outside the surgical realm, there are also many gimmicks that promise the world, but rarely deliver. It is important to explore these treatments and identify which is which. If you are unsure about the indications, outcomes or validity of a non-surgical or minimally invasive procedure that seems appealing to you, ask your plastic surgeon to discuss his or her thoughts with you.
