Two thermirase procedures and no results?

What to do if a procedure did not give me the results I expected?
Thanks for your question. Thermirase is a new procedure. It should help in areas where the muscle is strong and require no botox for about a year. The treatment success is based solely on the temperature needed to damage the nerve that cause the muscle to move. If a certain temperature is not reached then no result.....You have learned an important lesson in that it takes sometimes for than just one muscle to move a body region and thus treatement may require multiple muscles for a successful outcome.
I think that the reimbursement is up to you and your physician. I sometimes think of it as a meal that you buy at a restaurant. If you don't like it do you have to pay for it? I typically pay for all my meals even if I dont like them...... Again just discuss with your plastic surgeon. Good Luck!
