For everyone that thinking about having cosmetic surgery or those who have already had it know that it is a lengthy process. Results are not overnight and the before and afters you see are at least 6 weeks following the procedure. So what happens in between? How will my face look with a cast on after my nose job? My boobs are shinny and pointy 3 days post op, is that normal? These are common questions asked by patients.

Questions we hope will all become clear with access to personal MYA Journey accounts created by MYA patients, as a personal keepsake or for support. Similar to a weight loss journey, they show body changes over days, weeks and months. A MYA journey documents the healing process through a series of selfies from the pre-operative assessment, the day of surgery and aftercare.

Many patients opt for Instagram to document their journey, most of which we share on our sister Instagram @myacosmeticjourneys  so that you can easily locate MYA patients. Often referred to as #MYAGirls or #MYAMen
