Are you a patient of C. Mary O'Brien, FRCS(Plast)?
5 out of 5 stars Breast Reduction
I can't recommend or praise Mary O'Brien enough. Found her tone at the initial consultation to be suitably professional, very straightforward and very much 'no holds barred' when it came to pointing out the risks and the facts of this major surgery. Found this a little scary, and I rightly then needed time for the information to sink in. In hindsight I believe this is intentional to ensure that the patient is 100% sure before booking surgery. All consults after this were a little less formal and much more personal, when it was clear that I knew what I was getting into. I was completely put at ease by all staff at Derby Royal Private section, as well as by Mary herself, at each stage; from marking up to anaesthesia there was always someone there to reassure and chat to me. After care also fantastic. Have had two post op consults which both went very well and I found I was given enough time and plenty of patience with answers to my numerous questions. Also staff always available by phone for queries. With regard to the results of my op, I could not be happier. Although most surgeons probably do a good job and release the pressure by taking off the weight etc, I feel that my results are particularly good aesthetically and I believe that good decisions were made about size and shape during surgery. (NB. Beforehand I was adamant I wanted a C cup, was persuaded to go a little larger by Mary, taking my frame into account. This turned out to be the right decision as my D-ish cup is absolutely perfect for me personally).

Thank you for your question. It is very early days after a major operation. The breasts can feel a little numb at this early stage due to swelling.... READ MORE
