Smart Lipo Under Local Anesthetic / Non-Plastic Surgeon - Advice?
I am having SmartLipo on my U/L abs, love handles and sacrum. My problem is my doctor wants to do it under local and he said the surgery was going to take 5 hours. I am very afraid of needles and I am not liking the idea of me being awake, however this doctor doesn't offer general. My other concern is he is board certified but in family medicine and not PS. Also, I have read that the av. cost for this procedure is $4,500 to $5,500 and my doctor wants $6,500. Any advice is apprieated!! Thanks!
