When your breasts are causing problems such as neck/shoulder/back pain, painful/unsightly grooves in your shoulders, recurrent rashes, or limiting your mobility and activities with exercise, it may be time to consider a breast reduction. By reducing the weight of the breasts, many of these symptoms will improve and possibly resolve completely. Incidentally, Dr. Albright will also be able to create a perkier and more youthful appearing breast by lifting the remaining breast tissue and nipple back up where they belong. Most women undergoing breast reduction surgery are thrilled with their improvement in function and appearance. The most common response Dr. Albright gets from his reduction patients is “I should have done this YEARS ago!” It can change your life! Less well known breast reduction benefits particularly for women with very dense breast tissue is the possibility of detecting an early breast cancer or precancerous lesion, as well as a slight reduction in risk of breast cancer.
Dr. Albright is an expert in multiple breast reduction techniques. These techniques differ in how the extra skin is removed which determines the scar pattern, as well as how the breast tissue itself is adjusted which affects breast shape. After discussing your goals, Dr. Albright will examine your breasts to identify the best reduction technique for you with particular emphasis on achieving a long-lasting more youthful breast shape.
