Dr. Fayad has been performing oral revisions of lip and tongue ties (frenectomies) on patients of all ages for over 20 years. His interest in babies, breastfeeding and the tongue tie started with the birth of his own children. He has been a breastfeeding advocate since and knows that an untreated tongue tie especially can undermine the mother/baby breastfeeding relationship and have serious long-term repercussions if left untreated.
