"Over the course of six months, I had three surgeries performed by Dr. Albright. A unilateral breast reconstruction with a tissue expander, a DIEP-Flap bilateral breast reconstruction, and a nipple reconstruction and liposuction for fat grafting/transfer. Today, my breasts are the same size as the ones I lost due to cancer, except now they are full and firm. My nipples are well defined and in proportion to my areola and breast size. My abdomen looks completely flat, with no excess skin, no stretch marks, and a well re-positioned belly button. I have no visible scars on my breast, and the scar on my abdomen is thin, flat and almost unnoticeable.Dr. Albright is a gifted reconstructive surgeon with unparalleled surgical skills. He listens, counsels, and never promises what you he won’t be able to deliver. He exudes professionalism, kindness, and humbleness and so does his staff.By the grace and mercy of God I am alive and cancer free. By the hands of Dr. Albright, I am brand new."- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Mar 27, 2020

"Dr. Allbright is an intelligent, caring, and fantastic doctor! He genuinely listens to your concerns and he is very willing to work with you and whatever your needs are. I have heard a few people say that Dr. Allbright is young, So they are concerned with his skill level. My comment to that, Dr. Allbright was trained in the best technology possible and he is super amazing in his abilities. I would prefer Dr. Allbright to have me in surgery for 13 hours rather than someone that is twice his age. My results have been completely amazing and although my original reason to see him was because of a diagnosis of breast cancer, he has truly helped to enhance my life and has made the best of a bad situation. His entire staff is extremely knowledgeable and they are so very caring. Anytime I called with a question, One of his staff got with me very quickly. I cannot rave enough about this amazing person. He truly treats you as an individual and not at all as just another client. He actually remembers things from your last visit. He is one of a kind!!!"- J.L. / Google / Aug 02, 2019
Plan Your Procedure
what to expect with Breast Reduction
Breast reduction surgery is an outpatient treatment and is performed with general anesthesia. The duration of the surgery is dependent upon many factors, including what incision method is used, the overall technique, and finally, the degree of reconstruction. The nipple and areola repositioning will also be a factor. In most cases, liposuction is incorporated for fat removal to decrease the breast size. During the consultation, all of these factors are addressed. The topic of scars from the incision is also thoroughly discussed as it is common for some scarring to occur. However, advanced methods have led to a decrease in overall scarring. Depending on the complexity of the reduction, either an anchor or a vertical incision will be used. The breast tissue is removed, and the remaining tissue and skin tightened.
Breast Reduction anticipated results
After surgery, patients will be observed closely in our private recovery room and then released home to heal. A draining tube will most likely be placed near the surgical site to help control swelling and bleeding. A medical sports bra will be provided for several days that will improve blood flow to the breasts during the initial healing period. Within about a month, the breasts will settle and the post-op effects will dissipate. The majority of our patients remark they feel more weightless and lighter and more self-assured. After breast reduction surgery, you can buy the clothes you have always wanted and feel confident with your new appearance. Remember, it is still important to adhere to a healthy weight so the results are not negatively impacted.
