My name is Mary Guthrie, and I am a breast cancer survivor of 16 years. At the time I had bilateral mastectomy and reconstructive surgery. Recently I was experiencing pain and hardening lumps in the surgical areas . I searched for a doctor experienced in this tile of reconstructive surgery and I was fortunate to find Dr. Mytien Goldberg. Immediately after we met I knew she was the right doctor for what I needed. She made me feel very comfortable and that I deserved the best. She took her time to explain the options available to me and we agreed on the best approach. We settled on replacement my prior saline implants with silicone gel also Galaflex and fat from my own body (small liposuction) The steps she took gave me much natural look and confidence. Surgery is a success.I Highly recommend Dr, Maytien Goldberg and her professional staff ! .They are amazing !!

After going to two different breast surgeons, I chose Dr Goldberg for my breast reduction surgery. Dr Goldberg has a thorough understanding of womens health and approached my case with knowledge and sensitivity so that she could help boost my self confidence and alleviate much of the pain my breasts were causing on my shoulders and back. Since my surgery I have started standing significantly straighter and I have been able to start wearing clothes I never thought I could. The recovery process was very easy. Very little pain for me and within 6 days I was back pretty much back to my regular activities. Dr. Goldberg also has the most magnificent assistants— Celine and Vanessa that answered all of my questions while I was in the office and out and made me feel very supported before and after my surgery. Thank you to everyone at Dr. Goldberg’s office!!

I was fortunate that my Nurse Practitioner read an article about peripheral nerve reconstruction and sent a referral for a consultation with Dr. Mytien Goldberg. Immediately upon meeting Dr. Goldberg, I felt at ease because she listened, understood, and provided me hope for relieving debilitating sensory nerve pain for the first time in over 4 years since my nerve injury. There are doctors and then THERE IS MYTIEN GOLDBERG, MD, truly a ONE of a KIND, not only SKILLED, TALENTED, & EXPERIENCED but also CARING when most of the other orthopedic surgeons just did not provide any hope. I am grateful every second I remember I have become sensory nerve pain-free thanks to Dr. Goldberg!!

My journey started with (2) amazing doctors Ali-Jones my cancer surgeon and Mytien Goldberg my breast reconstruction surgeon in '2020, I call them my Dream-Team. I opted for breast reconstruction Immediately after my surgery which meant a longer surgery time about 9 or 10 hours. But, I knew I was in good hands! Dr. Goldberg made me feel at ease explaining every detail about the procedure in professional and compassionate manner. she was in contact with Dr. Ali-Jones via text letting her know my progress as well as contacting my family after I came out of surgery. My journey will continue as I will have my final surgery this month. I Highly Recommend Dr Goldberg ;she is definitely 5 Star. Thanks, to you and your staff for making my journey a Pleasant Experience!!

Dr. Goldberg performed reconstructive surgery alongside my surgeon for my breast cancer treatment in 2020. Her staff was wonderful to work with, and made it a point to follow up with me after surgery just to see how I was feeling, even giving me their personal cell phone number in case I had any questions or concerns. My experience with Dr. Goldberg and her staff was wonderful from beginning to end, and I'd recommend them without hesitation to anyone considering her services!

The services that I have received from Dr. Goldberg are excellent. I have had the migraine for years. Dr. Goldberg has given me the Botox treatments which have resolved my headache migraine. The latest treatment that I received from Dr. Goldberg, was the Microneedling or so called “Vampire Facial!” I start noticing more vibrant, youthful skin within the first week: my skin tone tighter, even-toned, younger-looking skin! Not only Dr. Goldberg gave me the best treatment, she also follow up my health exam by face-time me daily for the first four days after the post procedure. Dr. Goldberg ensures that her patient is satisfied with the result of her treatment. It is difficult to find the best doctor, who has the combination of personal touch and delicate care/kindness for a patient as a person with the outstanding quality of surgical care. It is Dr. Goldberg, who has both these qualities. Dr. Goldberg and her staff are friendly, kind, and patient. They ensured I had a smooth prep, surgery, and follow-up. I am so glad that I choose her as my personal surgeon. I gave her expertise with the overall experience/treatments/kindness and her staff FIVE stars! HIGHLY RECOMMEND to anyone looking for a specialist!

Am I a Candidate for a Breast Lift?

The best candidates for a breast lift surgery are those healthy, nonsmoking women with realistic expectations for the results. Candidates commonly had one or more of the following issues:

  • Sagging or drooping breasts
  • Breasts that have lost their original shape
  • Areolas that are enlarged
  • A downward-pointing nipple-areola complex
  • Breasts that are asymmetrical (there may be additional breast surgery techniques that will be required)

How Is a Breast Lift Performed?

What Is Discussed At My Consultation?

During your initial consultation, you and Dr. Goldberg will be discussing your desired breast appearance and feel. By examining your breasts, Dr. Goldberg will determine whether a breast lift is the best course of action for you.

If she determines that you are a suitable candidate for a breast lift surgery, she will choose the type of anesthesia and incision that she will use. She will then answer any queries or address any worries you may have regarding your lift before giving you preoperative and postoperative instructions.

What Kind of Anesthesia Is Used for Breast Lift Surgery?

Local or general anesthesia will be administered depending on the extent of the procedure (breast size and shape, amount of excess skin to be removed, and the size and position of the areolas). Regardless of the anesthesia administered, it is guaranteed that you will experience no pain during surgery.

What Happens During My Breast Lift?

Following the administration of anesthesia, Dr. Goldberg will perform an incision in the breast. She will then be lifting and do some reshaping of the breast tissue underneath and will reposition the nipple and areola. She will, if necessary, shrink the size of the areola. The incisions will then be closed, and you will be on your way to start your recovery.

Typically, the duration of the procedure is between two and three hours.

Where Will My Breast Lift Incisions Be?

Dr. Goldberg uses three different kinds of incisions during a breast lift surgery:

  • Donut lift:Used mostly for those with minimal sagging. A circumferential incision is made all around areola. The marginal change of the nipple-areola complex in relation to the breast mound renders this the least effective lift technique. Moreover, due to the tension around the nipple, the scar around the nipple will tend to expand over time.
  • Lollipop lift: Used to treat moderate to severe sagging of the breasts. The incision takes place around the areola and extends all the way the breast’s lower pole, giving it the appearance of a lollipop. This is a significantly more efficient lifting method. Dr. Goldberg will use the patient’s own breast tissue to augment the breast’s upper pole which in turn will add to the fullness to the entire breast.
  • Anchor or inverted-T lift: Used for correcting severe breast sagging. The initial incision is a lollipop lift; however, a second incision will be made across the inframammary fold or the breast crease just below the breast. This breast lift is highly effective. Dr. Goldberg minimizes the scar’s horizontal component, resulting in fewer scars on the breast. During a procedure known as autoaugmentation, Dr. Goldberg will also use your own breast tissue to effectively augment the upper pole, giving your breasts more fullness.

Here are some illustration samples of various breast lift procedures.

Case Study: Anchor Breast Lift

An anchor breast lift was performed in this case.

The 42-year-old patient underwent an anchor breast lift utilizing her own breast tissue to fully augment the fullness of the upper pole. As a result, the breasts are significantly lifted, their natural shape is restored, and fullness in the upper pole of the breasts is restored.

What Is GalaFLEX® Surgical Scaffolding?

A mesh material called GalaFLEX® surgical scaffolding is inserted into the breast during a lift. By reinforcing the tissues, this mesh will act as an internal bra. GalaFLEX® breast lifts tend to yield longer-lasting results.

What Is Breast Lift Recovery Like?

After your procedure, a tube may be temporarily inserted to drain excess fluid and blood. You will experience breast pain, swelling, and bruising; nevertheless, these side effects should subside within two weeks, and you can take medication to alleviate postoperative discomfort.

You must refrain from doing vigorous activity for two weeks. However, you should be able to go back to work within one and two weeks after surgery. It is normal for the area to feel numb for up to six weeks. During this time, you must wear a compression garment to expedite your recovery.

What Results Can I Expect From Breast Lift Surgery?

How Long Until I See My Results?

Despite some localized swelling and bruising, the results of your procedure will be visible immediately. However, final results can take up to six weeks to manifest.

Will There Be Any Scars?

Breast lift surgery usually involves incisions, so scarring is inevitable. While the majority of breast lift scars will be concealed in the breast contours which is around the areola and in the breast’s natural creases, a lollipop or anchor/inverted-T incision will leave visible scarring on the breast skin. Nevertheless, these scars ought to fade with time.

Can a Breast Lift Be Combined With Other Procedures?

Yes. While some women opt for a breast lift as a stand-alone procedure, the majority combine it with other procedures. Combinations such as a breast lift with implants or augmentation and a breast reduction and lift are among the most common. When women want to alter the size of both breasts, they usually undergo a combination procedure.

One of the advantages of combining procedures is a shorter overall recovery period, as you will recover from multiple procedures simultaneously.

How Much Does a Breast Lift Cost?

As with all surgical procedures, the cost of a breast lift varies from patient to patient. The price of a breast lift depends on the degree of the modification, the type of anesthesia that will be used, the incision technique required, and whether or not the breast lift is performed in conjunction with other procedures. You will be given with an accurate cost estimate during your consultation.
