Well firstly, 7500 was out of pocket, the rest was covered by insurance and my surgeon also took care of my lucrative 2600 deductible. Anyway, I'm a 21 year old girl who was very indecisive about getting this surgery and finally just went forward with it. Best decision ever!
Pros: Outcome came out better than both my surgeon & I expected! Very minimal pain, doctor doesn't use padding. Was on pain medication for two days then was free to do as I please. Doctor is very hands-on and very patient.
Cons: So far away! He is in New Jersey while I am in Brooklyn - would prefer someone not an hour drive away but then again, at least he has a parking lot!
