Breast Reduction Surgery UK
Mr Sheikh Ahmad
With clinics in Harley Street London, Truro Cornwall, Birmingham and Cardiff., Mr Sheikh Ahmad has developed a unique breast reduction package for clients in the South West and all over the country. One that offers extensive surgical experience, a bespoke pre-op consultation process, a door-to-door VIP service and carefully crafted aftercare.
Mr. Ahmad has over 30 years of surgical experience, with extensive experience in cosmetic breast surgery and reductions with minimal scarring. He’s performed more than 3,000 breast augmentations and reductions and other cosmetic procedures, using a variety of techniques that are tailored to individual needs and demands.
Consultation includes full surgical planning with a discussion of the different techniques available. 3D assessment with Crisalix is not an an essential service to everyone having breast reduction. However in certain cases it is carried out as part of the pre-surgery evaluation, to help the client and surgeon make decisions regarding size, lift and overall shape.
A limousine service is available on request, which provides the client with comfortable and private transport both to and from the hospital. This service is extended to clients who wish to have their surgery in a different city. It’s provided at a subsidised rate, is unique to Mr Ahmad’s practice and has been very popular with his clients.
Weekly clinics are held at his private clinics. To find out more and book a consultation, please make an appointment with Mr. Ahmad by contacting his secretary via email or telephone on 01872 248325.
Summary of Treatment
Frequently Asked Questions
ABOUT BREAST REDUCTION SURGERY
Why Opt For Breast Reduction Surgery?
They’re not happy with the large size of their breasts.
They’re suffering from associated problems, such as neck and back ache, infection under the breast folds etc.
Conspicuous asymmetry due to one breast being too large.
Subsequent to cancer surgery, there’s a need to create symmetry.
How Is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?
Both techniques produce very good results. As a general rule Mr. Ahmad uses the Wise pattern Inverted T technique for large reductions, and vertical pattern for moderate and small reductions. The vertical technique has the advantage of minimal scarring and more projection.
There are other less commonly used techniques, such as Benelli or round block, the L short-scar mammoplasty etc. During the consultation Mr. Ahmad will go through the pros and cons of each technique and recommend the most appropriate one, depending on your desires and preferences.
How much does it cost to reduce breast size?
Is It Better To Lose Weight Before Breast Reduction Surgery?
At the very least you should bring your BMI to less than 33 through a diet. Some patients struggle with weight loss when they have very large macromastia (very large breasts) as large breasts make it difficult to exercise.
Mr. Ahmad is happy to offer his professional advice in this situation.
Does Breast Reduction Surgery Leave Scars?
What Happens At My First Consultation?
How Painful Is Breast Reduction Surgery?
What Does Surgery Involve?
Surgery involves lifting the nipple and areola, a reduction of the breast skin envelope and an overall improvement in the shape of the breast.
How Will I Feel After Surgery?
How Long Will I Be In Hospital?
What Clothes Should I Bring To Wear After The Operation?
A loose button-down shirt is ideal. Avoid clothes that would need pulling on over your head.
Are There Any Side Effects To The Operation?
The most common side effect is feeling sleepy for a few hours. Sometimes the anaesthetic makes you feel sickly, but usually for a short time only.
You may feel slightly bloated for a few days. This is often due to slight constipation caused by medication. A gentle laxative will help resolve this.
POST SURGERY, RECOVERY & THE FUTURE
Will I See The Surgeon Again After Surgery?
How Long Will It Take For The Swelling To Subside Entirely?
Do I Need To Take Time Off Work After Surgery?
If your job is sedentary, you can occasionally return after ten days, but remember that you may still be taking painkillers.
What Bra Should I Wear After Surgery?
A shock-absorber type bra should be worn during sport. Keeping the skin over the breasts moisturised helps to maintain elasticity (Bio Oil is possibly advantageous here).
How Can I Prevent Sagging In Future Years?
Your breasts will always change as you get older, and this is irrespective of whether you have breast reduction or not. This is because of biological changes that occur with aging such as loss of elastin, stretching of collagen, atrophy of breast tissue, loss of skin elasticity, sun damage to skin, smoking related damage, effects of weight change on skin and breast tissue, effects of pregnancies and breastfeeding on skin and breast tissue, hormonal changes, weight of breast tissue and quality of supporting tissues.
Avoid the use of sunbeds and do not smoke at all (both have a very detrimental effect on skin elasticity and quality, as well as micro-vessel blood flow).
Maintain your weight in the healthy range for your body mass index.
What Will Happen In Event Of Something Going Wrong?
The procedure does not cover against the more long-term changes that can occur in the breasts of most women, such as developing a breast lump, or changes in sensation, and future breast sagging. The procedure does not cover against dissatisfaction with the size, or shape, unless it is related to a surgical problem.
Your surgeon’s post-operative pictures are the typical results achieved and not carefully selected photos simply to impress patients. These are the results your surgeon will expect to achieve with you, unless there are other limitations.
