Hi hoddle 10, Thanks for your response. I have done a lot of research, but this confuses me. Why is scarring such a risk? Could covering with pubic hair hide this? Also is a scar not better than avoiding sport because of humiliation showers, etc...? Could he have improved in the last 15 years even if it is the same approach? I am only expecting a flaccid gain EG would be nice, but I accept that is not possible. Also, if it was continually so bad, why no negative reviews. The guy seems to get a lot of business? Just sick of feeling inadequate after sports. Btw, I am not questioning your integrity...also in those youtube videos, the guys looked pretty happy, although that was just fft. Is a lig cut and fft with viel that bad a deal for cosmetic increases? Also, other countries are just not an option at the minute for me.
The Y/V in the pubic area is notorious for poor scarring. Go through every well known surgeon in the US and find one that still uses the Y/V. Why would they not want to take advantage of a skin flap if there wasn't good reason? We have a member called Dassie (sp?) who had the Y/V with Viel a couple of years ago and the last I heard he was asking me for advice with scar revision.
There aren't many reviews of Viel full stop, either negative of positive. I was on PE forums for a decade before I found another Viel patient. So the fact there aren't many negative reviews means nothing. However, I'm not saying Viel is a bad surgeon. But the lig cut is a rubbish surgery, even without scarring. I'd strongly advise you not to do it, especially if it's just for the locker room, as you could end up with an embarrassing scar, that means you want to hide away even more than you currently do.
FFT isn't always bad, as long as you know you'll probably need to go back for regular top ups. Mr Viel is also a nice guy. I'm not telling you not to get FFT, but just making you aware that it is unlikely to be a one off procedure. I'd expect to have to go back about once every 6 months for several years. You might also find you don't like the feel, but that is dependent on a number of different factors that we can't predict.
