I read a lot about this surgery and it seems that it leaves scares on the legs. Do you know of anyone who did the surgery? Are they happy with the results?

If you want to know more about this surgery, you might want to read here: http://www.makemetaller.info/index.php/topic,2525.0.html

Shelley, you said on the comment box here that you won't have the surgery because of risks. Would you mind elaborating on these risks? It's hard for me to find any detailed information about this surgery so I've never read anything about risks.

In a surgery things can go wrong (even if the chances are slim), so this is what I meant when I wrote "risks".
I also heard from several people (including a Plastic Surgeon) that the skin on the legs tend to scare badly.

In the information I found on the web, I saw several techniques to perform the legs correction surgery, some claim to leave small scars. I really don't know if it's true or not...
