What Happens During A DC Tummy Tuck Procedure?

During the tummy tuck procedure, Dr. Bruno or Dr. Brown will make the appropriate incisions depending on the technique chosen.

The upper abdominal skin is pulled down, and any excess skin is trimmed. The incisions are then closed accordingly. Liposuction is often performed before and during the procedure.

Your DC tummy tuck surgeon will work with you to determine which tummy tuck procedure best meets your needs. Some options include a full tummy tuck procedure, a mini tummy tuck procedure, or an extended tummy tuck procedure.

  • A full tummy tuck procedure involves an incision across the hip line and around the belly button
  • A mini tummy tuck procedure involves a smaller incision and is often complemented with liposuction.
  • An extended tummy tuck is best suited for individuals who have lost a significant amount of weight and involves extending the incision around the sides and possibly the lower back.

Our surgeons will tailor your tummy tuck procedure to best suit your needs and goals to result in a beautiful, natural look.

Can I Combine A DC Tummy Tuck Procedure With Other Procedures?

Yes! Many female patients also choose to have a tummy tuck as part of their mommy makeover, which allows you to combine procedures like breast augmentation, breast reduction, sculpting, and more. Some also have a tummy tuck with another sculpting procedure, such as liposuction. During your consultation, we can go through all of your goals to see if multiple procedures would be a better choice for you.

The Difference Between Implants and Breast Augmentations with Fat Grafting in DC

Are you trying to decide whether or not you would like to get a breast augmentation done? Maybe you’re torn between getting implants or going with a breast augmentation with fat grafting?

Our practice is here to answer any and all questions regarding the procedure, providing you with the as much information as possible.

Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation, DC

Should I Get A Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafting In DC?

The breast augmentation with fat grafting procedure is for patients looking to increase the size of their breasts without using implants. With this procedure, you can feel more confident with your breast size and remove any unwanted fat from other areas of your body.

If you are curious about whether or not you are a candidate for this procedure, we highly recommend scheduling a consultation with one of our board-certified plastic surgeons, Dr. Brown or Dr. Bruno.

You are a candidate for a breast augmentation with fat grafting procedure if you:

  • You are at least 18 years of age
  • You are interested in a modest breast enhancement
  • You may have a breast asymmetry
  • You are not currently pregnant or nursing
  • You are in good overall health

If you are concerned about scarring, the scarring is minimal during this procedure because the incisions are very small. However, the healing processes will differ between individuals; no two people will heal the same.

Benefits Of A Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafting In DC

There is a dual benefit of doing a breast augmentation with fat grafting because we are targeting unwanted fatty deposits and using those fatty deposits for your breast enhancement.

During your procedure, your repurposed fat will be used to reshape and contour your breasts. Small, needle-sized incisions will be made in discreet locations to achieve the patient’s desired shape, size, and lift.

Other benefits of breast augmentation with fat grafting may include:

  • Restoring breast volume
  • Restoring shape typically lost after aging, pregnancy, or weight loss
  • No need to use an implant to improve the appearance
  • Increasing breast symmetry
  • Improving breast projection
  • Increasing cleavage
  • Reshaping cleavage
  • Targeting unwanted fatty deposits
  • Scarring is minimal, as incisions are very small
  • The procedure is performed using liposuction, addressing two concerns at one time

Should I Get Implants Or A DC Breast Augmentation With Fat Grafting?

We understand that not every woman wants to use implants to reshape and resize their breasts. While the traditional breast augmentation procedure will reshape and resize the appearance of your breasts using a silicone or saline implant, this procedure can achieve similar results using a careful injection of fat. During your consultation, your DC plastic surgeon will work with you to determine how to achieve your desired look and the amount of fat necessary to meet your needs.

Breast Augmentations With Fat Grafting At A Glance

Here is a rundown of what our patients can expect:

  • Surgery time will be between 1-2 hours
  • Recovery time is between 1-2 days
  • Typically, no overnight hospital stay is required

Again, every patient will heal differently and can expect different healing times.
