Fears that the intervention could lead to paralysis are unfounded because the nerves in question have no effect on muscle function. The sensitivity of the skin surface also remains unaffected, with the possible exception of an occasional numbness around the small surgical scars.

Previous studies and experience of the treating physicians demonstrate a very high degree of patient satisfaction over the years!
