At MYA liposuction is performed under general anaesthetic. The
most popular areas for men are the chest, abdomen, buttocks and
thighs. Through tiny incisions in the skin a hollow metal tube or
cannula, breaks up the fat beneath the skin. It is then removed by
a syringe or vacuum pump. Ultrasound waves or an injection of fluid
can also break up the fat.
IS IT RIGHT FOR ME?
Any surgery is a big decision and MYA will provide all of the
details you will need to make an informed choice. Liposuction
provides amazing results however, it should not be considered as an
alternative to diet and exercise.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?
Approximately 30 minutes to 2 hours, depending on the technique
and the extent of the surgery.
WHAT HAPPENS AFTER SURGERY?
You will need a few days off work to recover and no exercise for
a couple of weeks. A liposuction support garment will need to be
worn for a few weeks after surgery.
