There are commonly no cosmetic side effects. In general, friends and family cannot tell that the patient has a unit implanted. Physical limitations are practically non-existent in our patients. In fact, the exact opposite has been found to be true. Having the unit implanted and no longer having to deal with chronic headaches allows our patients to feel liberated. They can now do things they couldn’t do before like go outside, enjoy physical activity, eat trigger foods that they couldn’t before and can resume their life after having the permanent procedure.
