Breast reconstruction can be a helpful step in the healing process for women who have lost all or part of a breast due to an accident or a mastectomy following breast cancer. For women who are self-conscious about having uneven breasts or a breast deformity, the procedure can help bring symmetry to the bust line for a more proportionate appearance. Dr. Goldberg has extensive experience in the procedure, having served as a fellow in breast reconstruction at Emory University.
Dr. Goldberg typically uses breast implants to reconstruct the breasts. However, patients who do not wish to have implants may have the option of a flap reconstruction. During a flap reconstruction, existing muscle, fat, and skin are taken from another part of the body and used to reconstruct the breast. During your initial consultation, Dr. Goldberg will evaluate your individual case to determine which breast reconstruction method will produce the most natural looking results.
