Sometimes, no matter how much we exercise or how healthily we eat, there are still those stubborn fatty areas that we just loathe. This is where the liposuction procedures available at MYA come in. There are three different forms of liposuction treatments: laser liposuction, Vaser liposuction and traditional liposuction.
One of our highly trained specialists will advise you on the best procedure for your needs.
The MYA Cardiff Clinic
MYA Cardiff is one of our most beautiful clinics and is located right in the heart of the city. You’ll be able to have a consultation with the lovely Krystina, who has had Vaser liposuction and will be able to offer advice on all stages of your journey.
Our surgeon, Dr Kingdon, is an expert in Vaser and laser liposuction meaning you’ll be in the best possible hands. See our before and after photos here.
Understanding Liposuction Surgery
Liposuction isn’t to be used to lose weight or tackle obesity, and if you fall into these categories, we recommend you speak to your GP. Prior to your consultation, we will measure your body mass index (BMI) to ensure you’re suitable for the procedure.
With physiological limitations on the amount of fat that can be removed during one procedure, it’s important to take this into consideration to ensure you have realistic expectations. Your surgeon will discuss this with you in your consultation.
The Liposuction Procedure
Liposuction works by removing deposits of fat from beneath your skin. This is achieved by using a stainless steel tube called a cannula which is assisted by a powerful vacuum to reshape the problem area. Liposuction treatments at our MYA Cardiff clinic are performed under general anaesthetic or local anaesthetic. Multiple areas can be treated with liposuction simultaneously, so the treatment time can take anything from 30 minutes - 2 hours.
At MYA we recommend you take a recovery period of 7 - 10 days off work after your procedure. Dissolvable stitches are used so you’ll need to keep the treated areas clean and dry and ensure you wear your supplied garment for 6 weeks. This will help keep the swelling and bruising to a minimum and assist with getting the best possible results.
