Good Afternoon Fiona, Thank you for your question. It is normal to have concerns and reservations about any surgery, especially one that you are choosing to do; and although there are risks, they are very low and even less if you live a healthy lifestyle, do not smoke and are within a normal BMI. Stubborn areas of fat that don’t decrease in spite of healthy diet and exercise can respond well to both surgical and non-surgical options. You’re best to consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon who can assess you and advise what treatment path would meet your aesthetic goals.Best of Luck, Dr. K.
