Tuberous Breast Correction
Corrective surgery is safe, but it’s a specialist procedure that requires experience in the condition. Traditional cosmetic breast surgery is not a satisfactory solution and in some cases only serves to quite literally increase the problem – more volume alone can simply make the condition more apparent.
Many women in the UK live with the condition (about 1-5% of patients coming for breast augmentation), and for many the results of specialist corrective surgery can be life changing; boosting self-confidence and body image, and helping them feel more comfortable in their own skin.

How Will I Feel After Surgery?
At this stage your surgeon should be happy for the nursing staff to dispense painkillers which are given in combination for few days, but most of the patients are quite comfortable with taking paracetamol after a week or so.
It is quite common for one breast to be more tender, and to swell slightly more (this is often the right side). Similarly one breast will often recover more quickly and this is quite normal.
Although it would be very rare, the gradual appearance of a great discrepancy in size would not be normal and should be assessed. Similarly if you feel unwell, feverish and develop a temperature you would need to consult your surgeon. If the skin over the breast swells and becomes reddened and tender you would need to consult your doctor.
Changes like this would be very unusual indeed, but it is important to know that should they occur, a prompt review is required to assess the cause and treat it.
How Long Will I Be In Hospital?
What Clothes Should I Bring To Wear After The Operation?
Are There Any Side Effects To The Operation?
You may feel slightly bloated for a few days. This is often due to slight constipation caused by painkillers. A gentle laxative will help resolve this.
If Something Goes Wrong During / After Operation, Is Surgery Guaranteed & Will Problems Be Resolved Within The Original Cost?
The kinds of problems that can occur are haematoma around the implant in the first 24-hours which will require evacuation, or implant infection needing implant removal in the first few weeks.
If these complications do occur you will be covered by the fixed price package for further surgery.
For example, if you need to have the implants removed because of an infection in the post-operative period, this is covered, as is the subsequent operation to replace new implants.
POST SURGERY, RECOVERY & THE FUTURE
Will I See The Surgeon Again After Surgery?
Do I Need To Take Time Off Work After Surgery?
Yes. Please check with Mr. Ahmad in relation to what you do. Generally you will require two weeks off. Three weeks or more may be needed if your job involves lifting or heavy manual work.
If your job is sedentary, you can occasionally return after ten days, but remember that you may still be taking painkillers.
What Bra Should I Wear After Surgery?
A shock-absorber type bra should be worn during sport. Keeping the skin over the breasts moisturised helps to maintain elasticity (Bio Oil is possibly advantageous here).
