Learn how the Urolift procedure can help relieve symptoms of an enlarged prostate

Doctor explains the Urolift procedure to his patient
If you suffer from an enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), you may have experienced symptoms such as frequent urination, difficulty urinating, or waking up in the middle of the night to use the restroom. If these symptoms are impacting your quality of life, a Urolift may be the solution you have been searching for. This private Urolift procedure is a minimally invasive treatment option that can provide relief from BPH symptoms without the need for traditional surgery.

During a Urolift procedure, small implants are inserted into the prostate to lift and hold the enlarged tissue out of the way, allowing urine to flow freely. The procedure typically takes less than an hour and is performed on an outpatient basis. Unlike traditional surgery for BPH, a Urolift does not require any cutting, heating, or removal of prostate tissue.

The benefits of a Urolift include a fast recovery time, a low risk of sexual side effects, and a quick return to normal activities. Additionally, Urolift has a high success rate and can provide long-lasting relief from BPH symptoms.

If you're struggling with an enlarged prostate, also known as benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), you may be experiencing a range of uncomfortable symptoms. The good news is that you don't have to live with these symptoms. A Urolift procedure may be able to help alleviate the discomfort and difficulty associated with BPH.

Some common symptoms that may lead you to consider a Urolift procedure include:

  • Difficulty urinating or a weak urine stream
  • Frequent urination, especially at night (nocturia)
  • Urgency to urinate
  • Feeling like your bladder is never completely empty
  • Inability to urinate

If you're experiencing any of these symptoms, it's important to speak with a healthcare professional to determine the underlying cause and explore potential treatment options, including a Urolift procedure.

A Urolift procedure is a minimally invasive alternative to traditional surgery that can provide long-lasting relief from BPH symptoms. If you're tired of living with the discomfort and disruption of BPH symptoms, a Urolift procedure may be the solution you're looking for. Contact Circle Health Group today to schedule a consultation to learn more about the benefits of a private Urolift procedure.

If you're experiencing the symptoms of an enlarged prostate, such as frequent urination, difficulty urinating, weak urine flow or bladder pain, you may have been diagnosed with benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH). Urolift is a minimally invasive procedure that can help relieve these symptoms by lifting and holding the enlarged prostate tissue out of the way, reducing pressure on the urethra.

Urolift is specifically designed to treat men who have an enlarged prostate that is causing symptoms. It is a safe and effective alternative to traditional prostate surgery, which involves removing prostate tissue. Urolift is often recommended for men who have not responded to medication or lifestyle changes, or who want to avoid the potential side effects of medication.

When you come in for your initial consultation for a Urolift procedure at Circle Health Group, we will take the time to get to know you and understand your medical history. We will also perform a physical examination and may order some tests or scans to diagnose your condition accurately.

During this consultation, we will discuss the benefits and risks of the Urolift procedure and any other treatment options available to you. We will also explain the procedure in detail and answer any questions you may have.

During a Urolift procedure, you can expect the following:

How long does it typically take?

The procedure is usually completed in under an hour.

What anaesthetic is used?

A local anaesthetic is used, and patients can be given a mild sedative if required.

What actually happens during the procedure?

The Urolift procedure is a minimally invasive way to treat an enlarged prostate. During the procedure, small implants are placed in the prostate to lift and hold the enlarged tissue out of the way, opening up the urethra to allow urine to flow more freely.

Is there anything you should know about recovery?

Most patients can return home on the same day and resume normal activities within a few days. It is common to experience mild discomfort, such as urinary urgency or frequency, for a few weeks after the procedure, but this should subside over time. You may be advised to avoid sexual activity or heavy lifting for a short period of time after the procedure. Your consultant will provide detailed post-operative care instructions tailored to your individual needs.

If you have any questions or concerns about the Urolift procedure, your consultant will be happy to discuss these with you during your initial consultation.

If you're considering a Urolift procedure, it's important to understand the risks and potential complications associated with the surgery.

Can I drink alcohol after Urolift?

It's best to avoid alcohol for the first 24 to 48 hours after the Urolift procedure. Alcohol can increase the risk of bleeding and dehydration, which can slow down the recovery process.
