MYA is a renowned national Cosmetic Surgery Provider who believe that the transparency of Cosmetic Surgery is key. Before you undergo cosmetic surgery, there is a lot to think about. As well as making sure you definitely want to go through with the surgery, you need to make sure you do your research before. This is vitally important. MYA want to make sure that you have access to all the right information before making your decision. They understand the needs of potential patients and so have any facts, figures and information you need. If this still isn't enough, they offer a platform with other patients so you can talk to them and discuss any worries or ask any questions. Both patients who have already undergone surgery or ones who have the same queries as you are available to chat.
It is really important that you fully understand the procedures you are having, the after care of your specific cosmetic surgery, the provider and any information about the surgeon and the processes they use. If you don't do your research properly, you could end up with problems during or afterwards. It is a scary thought but the precautions and research taken beforehand will prevent this from happening. You also need to look into where the surgery is being held. MYA have sponsored a project called 'Cosmetic Surgery Safety' where patients are presented with research check-lists, the potential risks of the surgery, articles, fact and figures and other resources. They also offer their potential and previous patient’s access to 'MYA Space Community.' This community us made up of around 15,000 members and is a place where you can openly discuss your thoughts, opinions and questions on your cosmetic surgery. MYA go the extra mile by giving you these options, not many other cosmetic surgery providers give you access to this.
It is also important that you take a look at the clinical data the provider holds and that of the surgeon also. The figures you need to be taking a look at are: surgical infection rates, revision rates, return to theatre rates, the amount of procedures your surgeon has undertaken and all historic information they have on anything that has gone wrong in the past. All of this information is available to you on the 'Clinical Data Page' through the MYA site.
