Anybody who had the operation, does it leave big scars?

Are they very visible, are they subtle ?

I heard there is a new technique that only leaves a very small incision on the side of the bests. Anybody heard about that  ?

Thanks

Chris

Chris....  check out my pics ( in my Sig ), minimal scarring. ;)

Sounds like you are talking about PAL ( Power Assisted Liposuction ). Dr. Frank Lista uses this technique. PAL gets both gland and fat. Not sure how well it works as I have never seen results of PAL.

your surgeon's pictures should answer that question. If he's good, should not really notice the scar.

Look in the photo section.  For every 5 guys who have no scars, 1 has massive scarring.  Well, maybe the photo section isn't the best place to support my claim. Some with bad scarring may not want to post it.
