Breast reduction surgeon helped her prepare for surgery — and her life after
One recent patient, who wished to remain anonymous, wanted to share her story about how her surgeon helped her prepare not only for her procedure, but for life after, too.
“If anyone were to ask me where to go or who to see about breast reduction surgery, I would recommend Dr. William Albright at University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics every time.
"I was pretty shy discussing my discomfort at my first consultation — large breasts were something that I had lived with for a very long time and I had many questions about the surgery. But Dr. Albright and his team helped me warm up to the idea, talking to me about the procedure, risks, overwhelming benefits, and recovery. I remember telling him, ‘I don't care what the scars look like, I just want to be able to exercise and sit comfortably without these aches and pains.’ I’ll never forget his response: ‘Leave the scars to me — you’ll do great in there.’
"I honestly thought I would cry after seeing my breasts for the first time after surgery, but I didn’t. I smiled. Now I feel more confident, my posture has improved, and I have finally realized what an overwhelming weight had literally been lifted off of my body. To say I am grateful for Dr. Albright and his team is an understatement. I would describe each one of the people in his office as friendly, warm, welcoming, and people who genuinely care about your comfort/discomfort. Thank you, University of Iowa Health Care / Aesthetic Consultants of Iowa.”
