Following a strict diet and exercise regime sometimes isn’t enough to rid us of those stubborn fatty areas we loathe. That is where the liposuction (fat removal) procedures at MYA come in. You can choose from 3 forms of liposuction at MYA in Birmingham: Vaser Liposuction, Laser Liposuction and traditional liposuction.
Our Birmingham location is one of the largest MYA clinics, home to consulting rooms and dedicated specialist cosmetic surgery staff.
What is Liposuction?
It is the removal of fat from deposits beneath the skin. This is done using a hollow stainless steel tube (cannula) with the assistance of a powerful vacuum to reshape the area. Our liposuction procedures at our Birmingham clinic are carried out under either local or general anaesthetic.
You are able to have a number of areas treated at the same time; this means a liposuction procedure can take between 30 minutes – 2 hours.
The procedure is not designed to tackle obesity or as a weight loss treatment as people who fall into this category should seek advice from their GP.
Before your consultation we will assess your BMI (Body Mass Index) to assist the surgeon to determine your suitability, as there are limitations to the quantity of fat that can be removed at one time. It is vitally important to have realistic expectations when considering this procedure. Any limitations will be discussed with you at your consultation.
After Your Procedure
After a liposuction procedure we recommend 7 – 10 days off work. You must keep the area clean and dry during this time, as you will have small incision sights in the area (dissolvable sutures will be used). It is also compulsory to wear your supplied garment for 4 – 6 weeks to reduce swelling and assist with your final result. See our before and after photos here.
