Abigail's Story

Treatment Details
Bilateral Breast Reduction
Hilal Bahia

Treatment Overview

Abigail told me that she was finding it difficult managing in her line of work, which involved a great deal of lifting. She also found it difficult finding the right size of underwear (HH cup). She was keen to undergo a breast reduction procedure. Her left breast was also a little larger than the right, and this would be corrected at the same time.

The Results

Abigail underwent a bilateral breast reduction operation, under a general anaesthetic, taking about 2 and a half hours and requiring an overnight stay in hospital. She had removal of 1.1kg (2.6lb) from the right breast and 1.4kg (3.1lb) from the left. All stitches were dissolving along with light dressings and no drains were used. She was allowed home the following day and was followed up in the nurses led dressing clinic at a week for change of dressings.

What the Patient said

Highly recommend Mr Bahia. Very informative and care. He managed to achieve my expectations and gave me the result I had wished for. Now 7 weeks post op already the difference is noticeable not just physically but mentally also.

5* treatment facilities and the care received from everyone involved second to none. Thank you!!

What the Surgeon said

These photos were taken at 7 weeks after Abigail’s surgery, when she was reviewed in my clinic. She has had a great result and can now return to full exercise gradually over the next week. Her scars remain pink and firm at this early stage, and I would expect these to gradually fade over the coming months with regular massage and moisturising.
