This procedure is most often done after breast cancer and mastectomy, and it can restore natural-looking breasts to help women feel whole, feminine, and confident again. Dr. Goldberg is a board-certified plastic surgeon whose passion is to empower women with the most advanced breast reconstruction techniques available. As a plastic and reconstructive surgeon, she uses the latest microsurgery techniques to achieve natural results and restore your pre-mastectomy breast shape.

read more › Prepectoral breast reconstruction is a safe, less painful, and more aesthetic alternative to submuscular implant reconstruction following mastectomy. Dr. Goldberg is of only a few experts who offer this newer technique in breast reconstruction. Traditionally, the tissue expander or implant is placed completely under the chest muscle (pectoralis major muscle) or partially submuscular/partial acellular dermal matrix (Dual-plane). Both the pectoralis major muscle and serratus anterior muscle or fascia are used in these techniques to cover the implant.

read more › A 2-stage implant-based breast reconstruction is the most common type of breast reconstruction being offered in the United States. It is a reconstruction technique that utilizes silicone breast implants as the final product of the reconstruction. At the first surgery (stage 1), the breast surgeon (surgeon performing the mastectomy procedure) removes the breast tissue and at the same surgery the plastic surgeon will place a tissue expander (balloon) into the breast pocket to create a new breast footprint.

read more › The most common "autologous" breast reconstruction (using your own tissue including skin and fat) is the use of abdominal tissue, also known as the DIEP flap (Deep Inferior Epigastric Perferator flap). The DIEP flap requires a microsurgical technique to transfer skin and fat from the abdomen to create a new breast. This skin patch's blood supply is provided by a network of small blood vessels that travel within your rectus abdominus muscle (the 6-pack muscles). These networks of blood vessels could be teased out and separated from the rectus muscle allowing preservation of this important abdominal muscle.

read more › This is one of the newest technique of autologous tissue breast reconstruction utilizing skin and fat tissue from your inner thigh. It is called the Profunda Artery Perferator (PAP) Flap. It was first described by Dr. Bob Allen in New Orleans as tissue taken from the buttock crease. In the past few years, the flap has evolved to tissue taken from the medial thigh. It is a great autologous tissue reconstruction option for patients who desires to have a complete organic breast reconstruction without the use of an implant and at the same time reduce the size of their inner thigh.

read more › An extended abdomen flap breast reconstruction is a combination of a DIEP flap along with a DCIA flap (Deep circumflex iliac artery perforator flap). Dr. Goldberg will utilize the entire lower abdomen and the love handle tissues to achieve the desired volume breast reconstruction and at the same time provide a complete organic breast reconstruction using your own tissue. Patient is a 56-year-old mother who was diagnosed with left breast cancer and BRCA 1 gene mutation in 2005. She required both breasts mastectomy.

read more › A hybrid breast reconstruction is combining DIEP flap with an implant in breast reconstructive surgery setting to achieve the desired volume and shape. Women with a small abdominal tissue and have breast cancer that requires radiation after mastectomy are great candidates for a hybrid breast reconstruction. This surgical option allows for the addition of healthy non-radiated tissue (DIEP flap) and an implant to achieve a desired breast volume and shape. Dr. Goldberg is the only few experts in the country that offer this unique reconstructive option for her patients in one surgery.

read more › Breast reconstruction is the creation of a new breast. This surgery is most commonly performed after a woman undergoes a mastectomy due to breast cancer. Breast reconstruction is usually performed in one of two ways. An "autologous reconstruction" uses the patient's tissue to reconstruct the breast, generally sourcing tissue from the buttocks, back, or abdomen. The second method is called "alloplastic reconstruction" and uses tissue expanders and implants to recreate a breast. Breast reconstruction is an incredibly complicated procedure.

People trying to keep a positive mindset liken aging to gaining experience and proof that they have been living. Some cultures like to say that aging shows that we are moving through time or alternately, that time is moving through us. Regardless of how wonderful or terrible our opinion on aging is, it is unavoidable that symptoms of our time on this Earth will begin to exhibit themselves directly on our body. One of the areas where the signs of aging first become noticeable is on our face.

read more › As people age, the effects of gravity, exposure to the sun, and the stresses of daily life can be seen in their faces. Aging skin loses elasticity and muscle tone in the face and neck, develops wrinkles, and loses youthful chin and neck contours. A facelift (technically known as rhytidectomy) can improve the effects of aging by removing or repositioning fat, tightening underlying tissues, and removing excess skin from the face and neck. A facelift can be performed in conjunction with other procedures such as a brow lift, dermabrasion, eyelid surgery, lip augmentation or nose reshaping for optimal results.

read more › Patient is a 53-year-old female unhappy with her eyes and the atrophy of her cheeks and nasolabial folds. Procedure: Patient underwent Upper and lower Blepharoplasty and fat transfer to her cheeks, tear troughs, and nasolabial folds. Aging around the eyelids is one of the first thing that prompt patients to seek the advice of a plastic surgeon. Women may begin to have difficulty evenly applying makeup to the upper lid due to excess redundant skin and bulging fat. For men, they may notice the excess skin making them look "tired, " despite a full night's rest.
