Weight loss surgery is available for patients in Liverpool through world-renowned surgeon Anca Breahna.
Through Anca’s expertise, the weight loss you desire can be achieved through a number of ways, these determined by your unique circumstances – the amount of fat, the location of the fat, your medical history and more still.
This is the benefit of a leading surgeon operating out of a wonderful facility – the Spire Murrayfield in Wirral.
It ensures that rather than having a one-size-fits-all approach, we can instead find the approach that is truly best for you.
Anca’s level of care and the results achieved are demonstrated through superb, impartial reviews, these setting her apart from other surgeons in Liverpool.
From here, we will outline the options for weight loss surgery, look to answer key questions and also speak briefly about Anca Breahna.
Surgery for the loss of weight
It is common to find that however hard we exercise, however good our diet (perhaps with the occasional lapse!) we are prone to localised areas of fat deposits and these are almost impossible to shift.
It is worth noting that the body actually does this intentionally, it likes to have pockets of fat in reserve, even if we, as that body’s owner, may be somewhat less keen for this.
The fat can be found in many different areas depending on the individual, however the issue is largely the same. Fat that is local and won’t shift.
This problem affects even those who are very healthy, with a perfect body mass index, especially as we age. Indeed, it is worth noting that most treatments are not for obesity or overall huge weight loss, instead they are to tackle this fat in specific areas for someone who is in, at worst, reasonable health.
Benefits of Weight Loss Surgery
These are not bariatric surgeries for the morbidly obese, instead they can be seen more in the light of body contouring, or improving.
They are cosmetic surgeries, but that is not to say the benefit is purely aesthetic.
This is often the key aim, to improve appearance. It may be to shift tummy fat, or to address a double chin.
Whatever the issue, wherever the fat, the problem clearly impacts appearance. Indeed it may have no overall health risk – we won’t die of a double chin, but we might feel upset.
That brings us to the second benefit, that the surgery can also have benefits to confidence and overall mental health.
Confidence and Appearance
When we have concerns about our appearance, this can reduce our confidence and so our self-esteem can be impacted.
Any treatment that improves this can do so much to boost confidence and self esteem, this then improving all areas of our life.
Relationships can be more fulfilling, we might feel more confident at work. We just feel happier in ourselves.
This can be one of the truly wonderful things to see – a patient who was lacking confidence becoming the best version of themselves.
Long term benefit
While this is not a treatment for obesity, there are still long-term health benefits.
With the newly enhanced figure, there is the motivation to stay fit, to keep the shape, to eat well and exercise.
It can remove a sense of desperation, that however hard we exercise this fat remains.
It is gone now, so now you can think to the future with greater joy.
Areas for Weight Loss Treatment
Suitability for any weight loss treatment would always be discussed at a detailed consultation.
Broadly speaking, the following can be treated for most patients, though this list is not exhaustive.
- tummy / stomach / abdomen
- thighs (saddlebags)
- bra rolls
- chin (double chin)
- overly developed male breasts
Weight Loss Surgery Procedures
Anca Breahna would use your full medical history and your unique circumstances to suggest the very best course of action.
This procedure, also known as lipo, is hugely popular.
With liposuction, a cannula is inserted into the skin through small cuts and a device is attached which then sucks out the fat.
This surgery is performed under general anaesthetic in hospital, and used on many areas such as the stomach, thighs, buttocks etc.
Liposuction will usually require an overnight stay in the wonderful Spire Murrayfield Hospital, though for smaller treatment areas it can be performed as a hospital day case.
After liposuction, there is a recovery period, with the patient needing to take it easy for a while, including time off work. However, it is worth it to get that wonderful new figure.
The tummy tuck is a process whereby fat is removed as well as skin tightened in the stomach/ abdominal region, the belly button is also often moved to ensure the final result is as desirable as possible.
There are degrees to how much fat the surgery removes, how extensive the treatment is. This depends on the individual patient, a mini tummy tuck might just refine appearance post pregnancy.
In more extreme instances, an extended abdominoplasty is for when there is a significant amount of fat. With this option, the hips and lower back might also be enhanced through surgery, this having a truly profound impact on appearance.
The Mummy Makeover, so called because it is hugely popular among Mums who fairly recently gave birth, is a truly superb treatment that removes unwanted fat but then uses this to help augment the breasts.
Two aesthetic concerns are treated at once – that there are pockets of fat post pregnancy and that the breasts have been negatively impacted.
The fat can be removed through a grafting procedure which is then used to help redefine the breasts, this may also be in conjunction with implants too.
One procedure that leads to two issues rectified and one whole new you!
