Happy Lady - Breast Reduction• •Location: Capio Yorkshire Clinic•Service: Breast reduction
I have had large breasts since a being teenager and more recently the menopause has increased my breast size. This over the years has impacted on my posture, due to the weight and also hunching over to try to disguise them, resulting in constant back, shoulder and neck pain. Physio and yoga helped to ease the discomfort, but only dealt with the symptoms and not the real cause.
After much research, and consultations with Mr Mahajan, who explained every step of the process to me, I had a breast reduction operation carried out three weeks ago. This was one of the best decisions I have ever made. Already the constant discomfort and the embarrassment from having large breasts are a thing of the past. My posture has already noticably improved and I’m sure this will continue once I can exercise again.
Having gone from a 36H to a 36D, I wish I had consulted Mr Mahajan many years sooner.
I can now stand tall, with improved posture and be proud of my new breasts which are now in proportion to my body frame.
I cannot express my thanks and gratitude enough to Mr Mahajan and the rest of the team for their expertise, care and compassion. Mr Mahajan is an excellent surgeon, very likeable and with the ability to allay any fears.

Following a 9stone weight loss, I decided to investigate the radical surgery needed to remove a large flap of abdominal skin. After some research I booked an appointment with Mr Mahajan at the Yorkshire Clinic. From the outset his calm and professional manner was most reassuring. He explained the possibilities for surgery for both my abdomen and breasts, suggesting the fleur de lis procedure to maximise the benefit of surgery in terms of appearance. I was happy with the size of my boobs in a good bra, it’s just that they were completely sagging onto my abdomen when naked, so Mr Mahajan suggested no form of implant was needed, but rather a restructuring of the skin around the breast tissue and moving of the nipple to give an uplifted appearance.
On the morning of my operation there was lots of marking up with felt pen and careful measuring and I was prepared for the lengthy surgery.
Following surgery Mr Mahajan visited me on the ward regularly, sometimes twice each day, to assess the wound drainage and general progress and I was discharged after 5 nights.
I had some difficulties with wound healing but the package I had chosen meant there was no limit in the care or clinic visits I could receive at the hospital, and continued to see Mr Mahajan each week for about 6 weeks and then monthly up to three months.
The laxity if the abdominal skin left some sagging still in the area of of my upper abdomen so Mr M suggested a ‘revision of scar’ to improve the appearance, he exercised caution because radical work too early would have risked nerve damage. I felt I was well informed of the potential benefits and possible risks through out the whole process, this also helped in ensuring my expectations for the surgery were realistic, as this was very stretched skin and complex surgery.
During the revision surgery on my upper abdomen, I also opted to have the sagging skin in my upper eyelids removed, where the hooded nature of the skin was actually obscuring my vision.
A year after the initial surgery, I am very, very pleased with the results. My boobs have been amazing from the moment I came around from the anaesthetic and my lower abdomen is beautifully smooth and tight. The upper abdomen has some slight wrinkling due to the difficulties of cutting right up to the area beneath my boobs. I’m not quite sure how he managed it but Mr M also tightened up the skin on my pubis in with everything else ????
My scars are fading to a pale pink and some have almost disappeared. The over all effect is fabulous, confidence building, gorgeousness.
I have recommended Mr Mahajan without hesitation to others as the initial consultation, surgery, care in hospital and continuing care until discharge were excellent.

After 3 children and losing 6 stone my only option was a tummy tuck. During my consultation with Mr Mahajan I also found out I had a hernia which would need to be repaired at the same time
As soon as I had my first consultation with Mr Mahajan I knew that he would be my first choice to carry out my surgery. He was open and honest about what could be achieved and what results I could expect.
After my operation I was in hospital for 3 nights and I can't fault the staff at the Yorkshire Clinic.
A couple of weeks after my initial operation, Mr Mahajan decided that my belly button wasn't healing properly and I would need a further operation to correct this. The second operation was scheduled for the following week. I am now 9 weeks after my first operation and all is healing well.
I am so pleased with the results that have been achieved, I only wish I had done it years ago.

Following a gradual weight loss of 25kgs, I was left with heavy eyelids and bags below my eyes. Not forgetting to mention my huge sagging and wobbly ‘turkey’ neck.
Extensive research and numerous enquiries resulted in consultations at, Tunbridge Wells, Bristol and Hull. Eventually discovering Mr Mahajan at The Spire Elland. My decision was an easy one, after speaking with Mr Mahajan, I knew instinctively he was the surgeon for me.
A weekend stay at The Spire has transformed my appearance for ever. It’s impossible to overstate the unassuming Mr Mahajan’s talent and superb surgical skills. The results are truly outstanding, a glance at my before/after photos say it all... For me Mr Mahajan is the best out there.
May I also thank all the staff and theatre team at The Spire for the best possible patient-care. Special mention to Paula for her always professional, yet friendly, kind and understanding post-operative nursing I received.

A REVIEW ON MR MAHAJAN
Last year after much research, my friend had an extensive procedure done by Mr Mahajan. After seeing the results a few months later I too booked a consultation with him. On the first meeting I made a decision to proceed with a makeover to the abdominal and breast area. I had full confidence in this surgeon which was a surprise to me after having a bad experience 10 years ago with a company in Manchester. I was treated with dignity and respect throughout and was informed every step of the way re. Pros and Cons and the likely outcome of the operation
Mr Mahajan and his highly skilled team were faced with difficulties largely due to my previous operation; the expertise was incredible resulting 2 weeks later in having a better body than I had 30 years ago and before multiple pregnancies. I can’t thank him enough for what he has done and I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

I really did’nt have much hesitation about organising an appointment at Yorkshire Clinic to enquire about and hopefully book a facelift.
At the age of 68 I had finally had enough of the heavy jowels and creased neck that belonged to me, and having previously had an operation at the Clinic a few years earlier, knew it to be a comfortable and reliable hospital where I could feel confident that things would be done professionally.
My first appointment with Mr Ajay Mahajan lasted only a few minutes when he found out I was an occasional smoker and insisted that I had to stop smoking altogether for the sake of my health and a successful operation. Although I felt a little rebuffed, I went back 6 weeks later for a second consultation and realised that his firm but fair way was part of his professional manner and one which I fully respected and got used to very quickly.
On the day of my operation a visit from Mr. Mahajan quickly followed by the anaesthetist served to re-assure me that I should not worry and to put my trust in their experience and expertise. Of course, it is only human nature to worry, but supported by the friendly nursing team around me I was taken in to theatre and ready for the operation which would more than likely change my life.
I was in Yorkshire Clinic overnight and out after lunch the following day.
I had a visit from Mr. Mahajan that morning and, although a man of few words, I knew from his big smile when he walked through the door that he was pleased with how the operation had gone and reassuringly said to me that he thought I would be ‘very pleased’ with the results – and I am!
Three months after my operation my face is relaxing and has settled down and improves weekly and I am utterly happy with the results.
I would suggest to anyone who is considering surgery at Yorkshire Clinic to have confidence and trust in the capabilities of Mr. Mahajan and his team, but realise that patience and an understanding that things need time and rest to recover afterwards is also what you need.

Mr Mahajan was my surgeon whom was highly recommended to me by a retired professor. Mr Mahajan is a friendly man who makes you feel comfortable in his company. Prior to my first consultation with Mr Mahajan I completed some online research where I found lots of positive reviews and feedback. I would recommend Mr Mahajan to those considering surgery.

After years of being unhappy with my neck & chin I decided to do something about it after researching I settled on mr mahajan as soon as I met him I knew that he was the surgeon I was going to have the operation with he discussed everything in great detail including any complications. The results are excellent even after only 10 days so will continue to improve.
