So I went in for a consultation and it was a colossal waste of money ($100 just for the privilege of making an appointment
and 100$ + tax for the actual appointment
Ended up being told that a surgical option is not for me (scar wise), and that my only other options would be Botox every 4 months or so (with risk of scarring at the injection sites) or a Thermage treatment (with an estimation of 25% improvement if at all).
I'm so pissed. Botox is out of the question because I can't afford that kind of dough for life. I was looking for something permanent.
So there's only Thermage left. I'm debating whether to do it or not. It costs $1500 and there are zero guarantees. 25% improvement is kind of low. Although I was told it could be 40% improvement or zero improvement! What a sh*tty option. I might do it out of desperation though. The doc warned me that some other surgeons would tell me that surgery is an option for me but that they would be putting me in harm's way in terms of scars
Seems like everybody in their mama is fixing the most bizarre things with surgery but I can't do sh*t.
