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!

What Is Breast Reduction?

Breast reduction surgery (reduction mammoplasty) is a medically indicated procedure that reduces the size of a woman’s breasts, decreases the weight on their shoulders, chest, and upper back, and also creates a more contoured lifted appearance. Additionally, this procedure can help reduce breast asymmetry, which will result in a more balanced aesthetic.

With this procedure, women will feel more confident in themselves and how they look. No longer will they worry about the unwanted attention and stares from strangers or the way their large breasts get in the way and keep them from the activities they love.

After a breast reduction, you’ll be able to enjoy living a life free of back and neck pain caused by your overly large breasts. In short, you’ll be able to live the life you want.

Why Choose Dr. Goldberg?

Dr. Mytien Goldberg is a leading female plastic surgeon in Beverly Hills who specializes in Breast reconstruction and breast reconstruction revision. Recognized by her peers as one of the most skilled microsurgeon, she is also known for her attention to detail, high-caliber surgical skills and beautiful, natural results. She has been in practice for over 10 years and is a faculty member with the division of plastic surgery at UCLA David Geffen School of medicine. She was awarded the teacher of the year by UCLA chief residents for her mentorship and teaching.

How Is Breast Reduction Surgery Performed?

Breast reduction surgery is performed under general anesthesia, so you will not feel any pain or discomfort.

Once the anesthesia has been administered, Dr. Goldberg will make the incisions in your breasts. She will remove excess breast tissue and fat; if needed, liposuction may be used to remove stubborn fat on the side of the chest and armpit areas.

The remaining breast tissue and fat will be reshaped to give a natural aesthetic appearance. Any excess skin will then be removed, and the nipple and areola will be repositioned. Lastly, the incisions will be closed.

GalaFLEX® scaffolding (a supporting mesh material) will be added to act as an internal bra to provide better structure and support.

What Incisions Are Used for Breast Reduction Surgery?

There are two types of incisions commonly used for breast reduction surgery:

  • Lollipop incision, where the incision is made around each areola and then extends down the front of the breast, from the areola to the bottom of the breast
  • Anchor incision, which starts as a lollipop incision but adds a horizontal incision at the bottom crease (inframammary fold) of each breast

How Long Will Surgery Take?

The actual breast reduction procedure can take two to four hours to complete, though you should plan on being there for longer to account for the time it takes to administer the anesthesia and for the anesthesia to wear off.

How Long Does Breast Reduction Recovery Take?

You will be sore for the first few days after your breast reduction procedure. This is completely normal and to be expected. Medication can be taken to lessen any pain you may experience. Additionally, you will have some swelling and bruising in the surgical areas for the first week or two, though these will dissipate on their own.

While you will be given more exact postoperative instructions, you will want to plan to rest your body for two to four weeks. During this time, you should get up and move around a little to help speed up the recovery, but you should keep your activity to a minimum: slow walks and light stretching.

During the first month of your recovery, you should not wear underwire bras, opting instead for a surgical bra or compression garment. While you will have scars, since this is an invasive procedure, your breast reduction scars will fade over time.

In total, it usually takes patients six weeks to fully recover from their breast reduction surgery and feel back to normal, though with a lighter weight on their chest.

What Results Can Be Expected From Breast Reduction Surgery?

After your breast reduction, you will have more manageable and smaller breasts. You will be able to wear the clothing that you’ve always wanted to wear but couldn’t. You will also find yourself feeling lighter and freer without any of the pain and discomfort that you may have felt with the larger breast size. For most women who underwent breast reduction, it will be the first time in their life where they can wear a top without a supportive bra.

More than anything, though, you will feel a sense of comfort in your own skin and the way you look. You’ll now be able to go out and enjoy the activities that you could only watch from the sidelines before.

How Much Does a Breast Reduction Cost?

Most major medical insurance plans cover breast reduction procedures. However, the medical policy may have weight requirements of breast tissue being removed (depending on the patient’s BMI and Body surface area).

Furthermore, the patient will need to have persistent clinical symptoms for more than six months. This includes:

  • Pain in the neck
  • Pain in the shoulders
  • Pain in the upper back
  • Painful kyphosis documented by X-rays
  • Pain/discomfort/ulceration from bra straps cutting into shoulders
  • Skin breakdown (severe soft tissue infection, tissue necrosis, ulceration hemorrhage) from overlying breast tissue

Some patients will elect to undergo breast reduction without involving their medical insurance. Like any cosmetic surgery, the price of a breast reduction varies with each patient and procedure. The price is dependent on various factors, including the extent of the treatment and whether any other procedures are being combined with breast reduction.

At your consultation, you will be provided an accurate cost estimate for the procedure.

Is Financing Available?

Yes. We finance through CareCredit® and Prosper-American Healthcare Lending. However, if you are not looking to work with an outside lender, we accept cash, Visa, Master Card, and American Express. Checks are only accepted for deposits.

Can I Combine My Breast Reduction With Other Procedures?

While many women who struggle with overly large breasts choose to simply undergo breast reduction surgery by itself, other women choose to combine their reduction with other surgical procedures so that they can achieve even more dynamic results. One of the most common combination procedures is liposuction of the chest. Other procedures that can be combined with breast reduction surgery include:
