I had my first consult today with a local board certified plastic surgeon who has worked with local celebrities/models/entertainers. His office and staff were really nice. The first thing he said was, "I see you were in a car accident in 1991. Were you the driver or the passenger...?" Well, I was seven years old, I explained, so I couldn't have been driving. Duh! Not a good first impression. It was funny to watch him gather his thoughts after that comment.
Anyway, he examined the scar and he said he felt very confident that he could make it thinner, but that it could stretch after anyway. He would excise the scar and place stitches underneath the skin. He said I could do it under local anesthesia, local and twilight, or general anesthesia. The doctor's assistant quoted the fee as $2,050 - $2250. Surprisingly, I thought it would cost more.
At this point, I'm still thinking about actually going through with the procedure. I'm pretty sure I will not seek the services of this surgeon. I have another consult in May with another PS, so I'm not calling it quits just yet.
