Dr Najem’s procedure helps to:
Women with large breasts (usually size D to G) often experience a significant amount of discomfort and pain in the neck, shoulders or back. Most women choose this procedure to alleviate this pain or improve the appearance of over-sized or sagging breasts.
The tumescent technique allows Dr Najem to fill the fat with diluted anaesthetic, which softens it and makes it more even. This means that instead of cutting away parts of the breast, he is able to easily remove the softened excess tissue and fat.
There are many more advantages to choosing the tumescent procedure:
Over-sized breasts can lead to a number of problems. These issues can be both psychological problems and physical discomfort.
Many women with breasts that are too large experience pain in their joints and back pains; they can also suffer from bad posture and scoliosis.
Liposuction can be performed on girls as young as 12. However, this is rare and the patient will need to have discussed the procedure with a child psychologist. The results of a breast reduction by liposuction vary significantly depending on the patient’s natural form.
Tumescent liposuction can be carried out to remove up to half of the breast, but it is usually those patients that have had children who choose to have the most removed, simply because of the increased levels of fat following childbirth.
Dr Najem will discuss your options with you at your confidential consultation.
He will recommend what might be best for you before you make the final decision on the surgery, as this will allow you to explain your desired results and then tailor the procedure to help you achieve them.
The recovery time is much shorter than with traditional breast reduction, so most patients only have to wear their compression garment for two weeks. For two weeks after this, the patient will only have to wear it for some of the time.
Dr Najem recommends that patients do not do any strenuous activities for at least the first two weeks. After this period, light exercise is allowed, but strenuous exercise should not be done for at least four weeks.
