Breast reduction surgery is one of the most powerful cosmetic procedures that Mr Titus Adams performs. Large breasts can cause significant problems due to a combination of physical symptoms such as painful or aching neck, shoulder and back, bra strap grooves, or rashes for example; social problems such as finding suitable clothing to wear or not being able to entertain exercise or swimming the way that you would like; through to underlying psychological concerns with body image or shape, which can interfere with relationships or with intimacy, for example. Collectively, this can have a huge bearing on one’s confidence and self-esteem.
Breast reduction surgery aims to reduce the size of the breast and nipple (including the areola), as well as lift the breasts into a more youthful and attractive position for your frame. With many ways to perform breast reduction, Mr Titus Adams will discuss the most effective method with you when you book a consultation.
Photographic and video examples of this surgery will be available to patients during the consultation to aid in decision-making.

What You Need to Know
Breast reduction surgery is performed under a general anaesthetic, and is accompanied by at least one hospital night stay. Smokers and very over-weight women are at greater risk of wound healing problems. Women should be at their desirable weight pre- operatively. Smoking should stop at least two weeks before and after surgery. Smoking can affect both wound healing and the vascular supply to the nipple. Aspirin and related anti-inflammatory medication (ibuprofen, naproxen, diclofenac) should be avoided for a similar period of time to reduce the risk of bleeding. Patients taking the oral contraceptive pill (not HRT) should stop taking this for 4 weeks before surgery, as there is a slight increased risk of thrombosis. Alternative forms of contraception would be required during this time.
What Happens when I Leave Hospital?
A soft, front-fastening supportive bra, that protects but does not restrict, with no under wire, should be worn as much as possible day and night to provide shape and support for up to 6 weeks. Thereafter, a normal bra can be used. Accurate bra sizing can be established at 3 months after swelling has receded.
Initially the breasts will appear firm and pert and even high on the chest. This is more pronounced with short, vertical scar techniques, with wrinkling of the skin noted towards the lower breast fold. Over the first few weeks, the breast skin envelope will relax and the breast will take up a more natural shape, but will take 6 months to normalise.
