Why did you want the procedure?

I thought about this procedure for 10 years but was told by two surgeons previously (from other groups) that I would need a tummy tuck to correct my stomach after having my child. This put me off doing anything about it as the tummy tuck procedure is major surgery plus I wasn’t ruling out having more children in the future and you are advised to have a tummy tuck once you have finished having your children.

It was only when I looked on the Glow by MYA website and Instagram that I saw my surgeon work and thought maybe he could help me. It was worth a try and I went to see him. To my amazement he assured me he could help me achieve the desired results with just 1 hour of Vaser! I couldn’t believe it! I was so excited and within a day I booked the procedure as I wasn’t about to wait another second longer. I previously had zero confidence showing my body to my partner and family/friends when on holiday so I would never wear a bikini. I always wore a swimsuit and it always made me feel inadequate. Now was my chance to change this.

Were your friends, family or partner supportive?

I didn’t hold back telling my friends and family as it was the news I was hoping for, they were all very interested in and how it worked. I did a lot of research so I could explain it to them in more detail; this helped me also in the lead up to the surgery.

Was your procedure done in time for a special occasion or reason?

My procedure was done in time for my summer holidays with my new partner and my son. I was determined to look good in a bikini but most of all, feel confident in one. My son is 12 so it doesn’t help when my stomach looks as though I have just had a baby recently, not 12 years ago. My holiday was planned for exactly 12 weeks after my surgery date. This was ideal for me as you are required to wear a garment 6 weeks post-op to reduce any swelling and help the skin to knit itself back to the muscle. Perfect timing!

I have no hesitation in recommending Glow by MYA as the best place to go! The pre-op checks are thorough and professional, and the Glow by MYA surgeon was just simply amazing.

Why did you choose Glow by MYA?

I chose Glow by MYA as the reviews were 5 star and they had the surgeon I wanted to meet. They created a fantastic package of surgery and aftercare which was very important to me too. The team were incredible from start to finish, I couldn’t fault them.

Unhappy with excess fat?

How was your consultation?

I was nervous in my consultation with my surgeon as I had to take my top off to show the area I wanted gone. After years of hiding it away, I was revealing the insecurities I had kept hidden for years.

How would you describe your surgeon?

My surgeon was the loveliest man I have ever met, he was professional and understanding; he made me feel at ease and not at all ashamed. He was able to tell me the first time he met me he can fix the problem and told me the plan of action in detail – I was no longer nervous but excited!

How was the day of your procedure?

On the day of my procedure I was not nervous at all, but so excited, as this was going to change my life (in terms of confidence) and possibly make me look at myself in a completely different way to what I had always done in the past. When I got there I met the anaesthetist and nurses, all were so kind and reassuring. Again, everyone was so professional making me feel I was in the safest hands. My partner was with me on the day of surgery and I could see he was a little nervous for me when they were marking me up but at the same time he was so supportive and he also was excited for me as he knew what it meant to me in the long run.

How was your recovery?

I was under sedation and a local anaesthetic for 1 hour and I couldn’t really remember much of the procedure. I do remember falling asleep and occasionally hearing them talking to me, a nurse held my hand all the way through. The recovery was different over the next coming weeks, as the first few days I was still dosed up on strong painkillers. A few days after that I was a bit sore and it was difficult getting up and down out of bed or in and out of the car. I was advised not to drive for a week and it was only after a week I felt ok to drive and could move my body a little more. I had to wear a garment every day for 6 weeks that I could only take this off for showering. My skin and muscle felt numb for about 4 weeks but I had a few massages post treatment to help reduce swelling and drainage. I must say this definitely helped in my recovery. After 5 weeks I was really ready to say goodbye to the garment, although it’s essential you wear it for recovery purposes. It’s very difficult wearing baggy clothes for 6 weeks when I couldn’t wait to show off my flat stomach!

Would you recommend Glow by MYA?

I would absolutely recommend anyone thinking of lipo to see my surgeon or a surgeon at Glow by MYA for a consultation! It could be you have stubborn fat like me, or a bigger area or a few areas, this procedure can accommodate a wide variety of fat removal/liposuction cases, and can give you the head start you need to change the way you look and your life style.
