Before and After Photos
Unique To You

Also called a reduction mammaplasty, breast reduction is a procedure that can have benefits to appearance, physical health and also mental health.
The reasons for choosing this surgery vary greatly.
Breasts that are overly large can lead to physical pain; their weight can lead to back and neck pain and potentially impact posture, such problems getting worse over time. Physical activities such as exercise can also be uncomfortable.
Their appearance can be a cause for concern too: people not liking how they look, and this then negatively impacts their self-esteem.
Inevitably, this also leads to mental health concerns of varying degrees. Work can be affected, so too relationships – an experience that should be enjoyable such as going on summer holiday can be greatly diminished if we have concerns over our appearance.
This is the true benefit of cosmetic surgery and a breast reduction and it is so wonderful to see. It makes the patient feel better, any health issues linked to overly large breasts being rectified, but also mental health being much better too. The patient just feels better about themselves and more confident and able to live life to the full.

FAQs are also covered, including.
Does a breast reduction also result in a breast lift?
Breast reduction surgery always includes a breast lift so that the new smaller breast is correctly positioned on the chest.
Can a breast reduction produce a specific cup?
Cup sizes tend to vary widely between shops and between bra ranges. Thus they are a very poor way of judging breast size. Maisam Fazel suggests that a much more accurate way to think about a breast reduction is in relation to the patient’s overall body shape and to try to make the breasts match the frame. Another useful way to think about the degree of reduction is to think of how much smaller a patient wishes to be, e.g. half the size of the existing breasts.
What scars does a breast reduction produce?
Different skin types produce different degrees of scarring but in general, the scars from a breast reduction tend to fade with time, eventually forming a pale silver line. Maisam Fazel will be able to advise on techniques to help minimise scarring post-surgery.
Please also rest assured that Doctor Fazel will answer all queries and provide you with all useful information.
A follow-up consultation is also common, this enables the prospective patient to give real thought as to whether surgery is suitable for them.
“Fabulous from start to finish.
I had my breast reduction and uplift back in December 2019 and am so pleased I went for it. I had been considering it for years on and off but was always concerned about how to find the right surgeon as you hear such horror stories. I finally plucked up the courage and went to see 2 surgeons through a well known company that a friend used but I found both consultants left me cold. One in particular. Then I stumbled across Mr Fazel, and thank goodness I did. From the moment I stepped into his office I felt I was going to be in safe hands. “
It is easy to speak of having a superb ethos and being a leading surgeon, but what do independent, verified reviews state?
