A breast reduction can help overcome the negative impact large breasts can have on a woman both physically and emotionally.
A breast reduction with Maisam Fazel can help address:
Maisam Fazel’s experience as a reconstructive breast surgeon allows him to tailor his surgery so that patients achieve a breast size that is proportional to their frame, rather than based on an abstract cup size.
During the breast reduction, Maisam Fazel removes excess fat, breast tissue and skin to produce a smaller, lifted natural-looking breast using an anchor shaped scar. This surgery can be combined with an areola reduction and liposuction to create a more aesthetically-pleasing appearance. For selected cases, Maisam Fazel can perform a scarless breast reduction using VASER liposuction alone
Maisam Fazel does not use drains so patients are mobile on the same day of their surgery and are typically discharged home the same or next day.

Breast reduction surgery always includes a breast lift so that the new smaller breast is correctly positioned on the chest.
This is an excellent technique for women who have good skin tone who desire a small reduction. The liposuction helps to reduce some of the breast volume and to produce some skin tightening. It is unsuitable for women requiring a significant breast lift or those seeking a large reduction.
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 eg half the size of the existing breasts.
If Maisam Fazel repositions the areolas during a breast reduction, nipple sensation may be altered. This is usually temporary.
Different skin types produce different degrees of scaring 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.
Some discomfort is experienced in the initial period after breast reduction surgery, but it should be easily managed with over-the-counter pain medication. There will be some swelling, but this should also subside quickly over 3 months. Most patients are driving after a week and are back at work 10 to 14 days after surgery.
Breast reduction patients usually enjoy long-lasting results, but pregnancy, menopause and weight gain can all increase breast size again. Younger women may require a repeat procedure if they experience a regrowth of breast tissue. With the ageing process, breasts tend to sag as the skin and breast tissue becomes more lax.

Incredible. Thank you Dr Fazel.
I had my operation with Dr Maisam Fazel 5 months ago (age 18) and all I can say is wow. The results exceeded my expectations and I have never felt this confident in myself! I was quite nervous, especially as I’m quite young, but Dr Fazel answered all of my questions, explained
the procedure and after care and he made me feel completely comfortable after the first consultation I had with him. I would definitely recommend him to anyone thinking about having this procedure, thank you Dr Fazel and all of your amazing staff!
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.
Brilliant surgeon and team.
I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Mr Fazel and his team. The process leading up to the surgery was brilliant I was made to feel very welcome and comfortable and there was no too many questions or silly questions. The surgery went great and I am extremely happy with the results. Best decision! The after care has also been incredible. I had a slight concern with the healing and Mr Fazel responded with advice almost immediately.
If you are considering a reduction I would highly recommend Mr Fazel
Mr Fazel is a genius.
I had a Breast Reduction and 6 weeks later my scars are improving rapidly. He has given me perfectly symmetrical breasts and really took his time getting the original measurements right.
I recommend Mr Fazel very highly.
