breast reduction scotland

Before and after gallery: post pregnancy

Pregnancy is a natural, healthy process to which many women aspire. Some women never fully recover their pre-pregnancy shape, especially if they have had several pregnancies. For most women, this is not a problem, and they lead a full and healthy lifestyle. Some women do have concerns about their bodies after pregnancy and breastfeeding. The most common requests for post-pregnancy plastic surgery are for ‘tummy tucks’, breast enlargement or lift, and liposuction. You will see a range of before and after photos reflecting this.

Mummy makeover – Breast reduction and tummy tuck

I am now a little over a year breast reduction/tummy tuck post op, and couldn’t speak any more highly of my experience with Omar Quaba.

From my first consultation to my final follow up, the level of care and detail was wonderful. I was listened to and carefully advised every step of the way, and Omar took great care to find the perfect balance between what I was seeking and what he knew would yield the best results.

My recovery wasn’t entirely straightforward, with the superficial healing taking around 10 weeks. However, this was down to how my body reacted to the some of the stitches, and not a reflection of my surgery or surgeon. I really felt well looked after, and that Omar went above and beyond to keep track of my longer recovery, scheduling additional follow ups with him directly, coming in to attend my nurse check ups on his days away from the hospital, and even asking his father, the renowned Mr Awf Quaba, to check up on me when he wasn’t able to. Its also very obvious how well regarded Omar is amongst staff in the hospital. I remember numerous comments from nurses during my immediate recovery about how he in particular uses the best methods and post care products, it was clear that I was “one of Omar’s”. This was tremendously reassuring in those first few hazy hours after surgery!

The nurses and everybody at Spire Murrayfield were fantastic. The only slight negative was that some of the admin left a lot to be desired – being called in on incorrect days etc.

Now that everything is fully settled, I am delighted with my results. It’s a big adjustment to have a new body, no matter how long you’ve dreamt of it. Emerging from the psychological and social weight of having very large breasts requires another very different type of recovery, and perhaps more could be done to warn you of this. However, every second of it is worth it, just be prepared for that journey!

It is so clear that you are not just another surgery to Omar, his work is his art, and by helping me to reclaim my body after two children and a lifetime of having ridiculously huge breasts, he has truly given me a life.
