Several people I know have had this procedure and they say it is quite painful, and scarring definitely resulted.
I agree with EmilyRoth7. If you are not confident with your surgeon do not go through with anything!!! Your input is important, as you will have to contend with results, however, your surgeon's expertise should come into play as well. Perhaps he or she can ameliorate your desired results with professional opinion. If you are unhappy and your surgeon is steering you in a totally different direction, express yourself to him or her. You deserve to get what you want, and it should be carried out by a surgeon with a great degree of mastery.
Ask to see some of his or her former "successful" results. It's all relative as to what is successful vs. what is considered a disaster. Almost all surgeons photograph before, during healing, and have after photos of their clients. Ask your surgeon to see photos of people that had the same surgery, as well as pics of individuals who were in similar situations to yours.
