How to know if you’re a good candidate for a tummy tuck

Have excess skin in their midsection from weight loss or pregnancy
Are in overall good health
Have realistic expectations for their results
Are close to their desired weight
“I am so grateful that I was recommended [to] Dr. Brown by my Ob/Gyn for my tummy tuck and he was also recommended for facial plastic surgery by one of New York’s most prominent plastic surgeons who I saw in the past when I lived there. Dr. Brown is the most kind, approachable and skilled doctor I’ve ever been under the care of. And I couldn’t be happier with the results. The results were above and beyond what I hoped for and it is such a pleasure to shop for clothes now and wear a bikini with confidence. There is no reason to go anywhere else. Their skin care specialist is so knowledgeable as well and her treatments and regimen have done wonders for my skin. I couldn’t recommend this practice more.”
When you schedule a consultation with one of our top-rated DC plastic surgeons we’ll discuss your goals and your specific case to determine the best course of action for you. There are three types of tummy tuck that we can consider:
Full tummy tuck- This procedure involves an incision along the hipline and around the belly button.
Mini tummy tuck- This involves a smaller incision and can often be completed by liposuction.
Extended tummy tuck– This procedure is a great option for patients who have lost a very significant amount of weight and have a great deal of loose hanging skin. In this procedure, there are incisions along the flank, lower back, and the hip line.
Following their procedure, many patients experience a boost in confidence, an enhanced overall figure, and an improvement in the appearance of abdominal muscles.

You may or may not have heard of the mommy makeover procedure before, but if your body has changed due to pregnancy and you want to get back to your pre-baby body, a mommy makeover could help.
Pregnancy and motherhood are wonderful experiences for many women, but having a child can change your body in several ways. Many women experience laxity in their abdominal muscles, excess skin, stretch marks, and saggy breasts. While diet and exercise can be great additions to your routine, they can’t always return your body to its pre-baby state.
Different women experience different changes to their body following pregnancy. For that reason, the mommy makeover is meant to be altered to fit the patient’s specific needs. Some women wish to make small adjustments to improve their appearance while others wish to drastically change their body. The procedure often includes a tummy tuck, liposuction, breast enhancement, and breast lift. We’ll discuss your specific goals in your consultation and help you determine which combination of procedures may be best for you.
When you’re considering a mommy makeover it’s important to discuss your options with an experienced and trusted plastic surgeon. The doctors at Bruno | Brown are committed to providing patients with the best possible result while always keeping the patient’s health and safety top of mind.

The breast lift procedure is a great option for women who wish to restore their youthful, perky chest. A variety of factors can affect the appearance of your breasts including age, weight loss, and pregnancy. Just as there are a variety of factors that can cause your breasts to sag, there are different approaches to the breast lift procedure and it’s important to find the right one for you.
At Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery we perform four types of breast lift. During your consultation, we’ll discuss your goals for your breast lift and the results you would like to achieve when deciding on the procedure for you. The four types of breast lift we perform are:
The Anchor- The anchor involves three incisions. One incision around the areola, one vertical to the breast crease and a final incision that is horizontal to the breast crease.
The Lollipop– The lollipop, similar to the anchor, only involves two incisions. This procedure has one incision around the areola and then another vertical to the breast crease.
The Periareolar– This option involves only one incision that goes around the areola.
The Crescent– The crescent is a good option for more minor cases as it involves one incision that goes along the top half of the areola.
The breast lift procedure is a great way to improve the position of your breast, tighten the breast skin, and improve the appearance of your breasts. Whether your goal is to make a small improvement to the appearance of your breasts or give your chest a whole new look, we’ll do what we can to achieve your goals safely.
