Hi

Just wondering if anyone is truly considering having this surgery done? If so

When and where do you plan on having surgery?

I am focused on having the operation done this year and hopefully share my experience with fellow future followers!. Wink

I thought about having the surgery for a long time and decided not to go through with it.
I went to an orthopedist that told me that they only perform the surgery in cases where the bow legs can cause damage to the knees etc. They are usually not performing it for aesthetic reasons only.
A plastic surgeon told me that the knees/legs tend to scare badly, so unless there is no other option I should not go through with this.

I forgot to mention - when i thought about having the surgery, I only thought about doing it in my own country. I would not go to the Ukraine or any other place in Europe to have it, as it's too far away from home, and I really know nothing about the doctors there.
