MYA Vaser Surgery: Part 1 Vaser or Liposuction?

08:30

Since about 1996 I have disliked my thighs.

Now, I haven’t stopped talking to them but over the years we have not got on. 

I’m a size 12/14 depending on fabric – not fat but not thin. I have tried lots & lots of treatments over the years to get rid of stubborn fat but it’s finally got to a stage when I either have to face up to the fact that my thighs are not my friend or I need to do something permanent.

My Nemesis 
So with that in mind I took myself off to Transform and MYA to see what surgery if any was open to me and also the cost.

My initial meetings with both clinics were led by Patient Care Co-ordinator's (PC) these are the ladies that will guide you during your cosmetic surgery query right to the end results if you decide to proceed. Before I went in I knew that 2 possible options were open to me traditional liposuction or Vaser liposelection.

After meeting with both PC's I felt that MYA was more ‘me’ & that Vaser surgery was what I wanted as the skin tightens during the surgery and there is less down time.  

Decision made!

So I took the next step and booked a consultation with the surgeon who luckily had one spare slot the following week over in Bristol.

Arriving at the Bristol clinic I was excited to meet Dr Max Marcellino as MYA give you a print out on your surgeon. Reading up on Dr Marcellino I felt really confident as he had loads of great reviews online.

At my consult I virtually bursting through the door of the consult room - I couldn't wait to drop my pants and show Dr Marcellino my problem area and in just under 5 minutes my meeting was over.

5 minutes? 

Yep, honey that was all that was needed.

Dr Marcellino was lovely & super quick. He looked at the area but recommended that I see Dr Joffily the Brazilian surgeon instead who would be in Bristol in just under 2 weeks.
Upon hearing his recommendation I was immediately panicked and worried. Not because of Dr Joffilly but concerned that maybe my thighs were soooo huge nothing could be done or that this was a ‘sign’.

I booked the appointment to see Dr Jofilly but after a few days I cancelled it. I was just so worried that I would be wasting both our time but after speaking to Sarah (my PC) she forwarded some pics to Dr Joffilly to get his opinion.

Not too long after sending the pictures over to Dr Joffily, Sarah got back to me and said that Dr Jofilly could do the Vaser Surgery and the appointment was set back up. 

So off I headed back to t’internet to research everything I could about Dr Joffilly and Vaser.... man this is beginning to feel like stalking!

Next time... Part 2: Meeting Dr Joffily

  8. Oh I will be following this keenly - I HATE my thighs, even when they were super toned they rub together when I walk and chafe in the heat. It's horrible. Good luck with your endeavour! H x

    1. Yes, I know what you mean. I have had super skinny legs (back in the day) but there was always that little bit of rubbing. Grrr

  9. I wonder what was the reason why the first doctor referred you to another surgeon. I don't think your thighs are that big, at least from the picture you look perfectly normal. Before giving up and going under surgery (I know I would never go voluntary), have you tried high intensive training? I have started it a month ago and I can already see results. It is very hard, but it is worth it.

    1. Initially I was worried but it was nothing sinister. Dr Joffily is one of the best Brazilian plastic surgeons over here so Dr Marcellino was just recommending the right man for the job.

  10. Hope your surgery goes well if you end up going ahead with it! Ps: your thighs really don't look that big, but I get it in a sense that we all have the one thing that we are annoyed with about ourselves. Wish you all the best on your journey!

    1. Aah thank you. I guess they are 'normal' sized I just have a problem area which unfortunately is close to the top of my thighs that is really the main issue.

  11. I know a few women that have had liposuction, I can't say it made a huge difference in the long run. Hopefully it will be better for you.

    1. The slightest difference is all I am seeking, but once anyone has liposuction it is all down to maintenance. Some people think they can eat everything and not work out but that's not the way it works.

  25. I've had my nemesis, it's my belly. No matter what I do, I can't get rid of the fat in that area. Even when I was little and skiny, I used to have a huge belly - that's how I saw it at the time. Well, I've never come to complete peace with my body, but surgery is a huge step for me. I am too scared to even consider it! I can't wait to see how things worked out for you. Good luck and all the best!

  27. You have to follow your heart and make the changes that will make you happy. Don't let anxiety get to you, you have obviously put a lot of thought into this decision and I'm sure your doctor will do an incredible job.

  31. First off, I don't think your thighs are too big. I was a figure skater and had huge thighs for many years. It made it challenging to fit some pieces of clothing. Exercise is amazing at sculpting your body.

    Secondly, I can't wait to hear more about this process and outcome. :)
