Breast Augmentation: ‘The best thing I ever did.’

Kaley Cuoco, The Big Bang Theory’s Penny Hofstadter, is refreshingly direct in an interview with Women’s Health about her breast implants.

According to the article:

Kaley, 31, credits her hot yoga and cycling routine, but in the same breath is just as honest about what else she’s done to her body. And by coy Hollywood standards, her revelations are almost shocking. “Years ago, I had my nose done,” she says casually. “And my boobs—best thing I ever did. Recently I had a filler in a line in my neck I’ve had since I was 12. As much as you want to love your inner self. . . I’m sorry, you also want to look good. I don’t think you should do it for a man or anyone else, but if it makes you feel confident, that’s amazing.”

Washington, DC: Breast Implants

DC Breast implantsDid you know that breast augmentation was the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure in the United States in 2018? 313,735 breast augmentation procedures were performed!

Are you considering breast implants in Washington, DC?

Breast implants can help you feel more comfortable in your skin and increase your self-confidence.

It may be that you simply want to increase your breast size, or that you’ve lost breast volume from aging, pregnancy or significant weight loss. Whatever your reason for considering breast implants, the skilled doctors and Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery can help.

Help choosing your implant type, implant profile, implant size and more.

There is a lot to consider when making your choice about breast implants.

We have three different breast implant options available:

  • Saline implants: A silicone shell is filled to your desired volume, increasing size and shape of cleavage
  • Silicone implants: More viscous than saline, a silicone shell is filled to the desired volume and offers a more natural look
  • Ideal implants: Uses a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold saline, providing a natural feel and youthful look

We also offer breast augmentation with fat grafting for those patients that do not want to use implants.

Implant size:

First, you should discuss the overall size or volume you’re looking to achieve. Your experienced plastic surgeon can help you choose the best implant size for the appearance you desire but will also talk you through additional considerations, such as skin elasticity to accommodate the implants you choose, your lifestyle and more.

Implant projection:

In addition to volume, breast implants come in five different profiles: Low, low plus, moderate, full and extra full projections. The profile changes the projection of your breast implants, so while not directly related to the implant size, they can affect how large or natural the implants appear.

Input from your DC Plastic Surgeon:

Our experienced plastic surgeons will help guide you throughout the process of choosing your ideal breast implants. However, keep in mind that decisions about your implants, including their size, must ultimately rest with you. Be sure to choose a surgeon who makes you feel comfortable asking questions and gathering all of the information you need to make an informed choice.

Our physicians have spent many years helping patients choose their breast implants and can offer you invaluable input, ensuring you feel confident in your decision and your expectations for breast augmentation are met.

Choosing the best size and implant type for your breast augmentation procedure in Washington, DC.

At Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery our doctors are often asked how to choose a breast implant size, and what type of implant should be used to achieve a patient’s ideal look for their breast augmentation procedure.

DC BREAST AUGMENTATIONBreast Augmentation and Implant Sizes:

The first thing that is important to understand is that bra cup sizes vary wildly from retailer to retailer and are not an exact measurement of breast size. Breast implants are measured by exact volume in cubic centimeters (cc’s), so while a cup size might give you a ballpark range of the overall breast size you are trying to achieve, they will not help you choose an exact breast implant size.

Try to put the idea of a specific cup size out of your mind while you consider your options. Also, remember that your natural breast tissues will contribute to the overall size of your breasts after implants have been placed, provided your implants are not part of a breast reconstruction procedure.

In general, breast implant volumes range from about 120cc to 800cc. In choosing a breast implant size, it also helps to remember that your skin must stretch to accommodate the implants you choose. If you have poor skin elasticity or are prone to stretch marks, your cosmetic results may be best if you choose implants that will not put undue stress on your skin.

Choosing the Best Size for Your Breast Implants for your Washington, DC Breast Augmentation Procedure

Visualizing breast implant sizing is helpful to some patients as they begin to imagine how they would look with larger breasts. Our sizing kit allows us to determine the overall desired volume and an approximation of how you will look after surgery. We do our sizing with a personal fitted t-shirt to see a general idea of the effect breast implants would have.

A measuring tape can also help. Having your surgeon take measurements of your chest wall dimensions will help you get a better understanding of your existing body proportions and how they would change with different breast implants.

One of the best resources available to patients choosing a breast implant size is the gallery of breast augmentation before and after photos. Looking at before and after photos of other patients who share a similar build, existing breast size and desired breast size can provide some of the most useful direction to women considering implants.

Don’t forget about breast implant profiles!

In addition to different volumes, breast implants also come in five different profiles: low, low plus, moderate, full and extra full projections.

The implant profile affects the projection of your breast implants, and although they are not directly related to the implant size, they can affect how large or natural your breasts appear.

Breast Implant Types:

Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery offers four types of breast implants:

  • Saline implants: A silicone shell is filled to your preferred volume, increasing the shape and size of your breasts
  • Silicone implants: More viscous than saline, a silicone shell is filled to the desired volume and offers a more natural look
  • Ideal implants: Uses a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold saline, providing a natural feel and youthful look
  • Fat grafting: Uses liposuction to transfer fat from other parts of the body to the breasts, giving a fuller look

Input from Top DC Plastic Surgeons

From size to type to your individual lifestyle, if you’re considering getting breast implants there’s a lot to consider.

The doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery will help guide you throughout the process of choosing your ideal breast implants.

One Patient’s Real Life DC Breast Implant Experience

We interviewed a Bruno | Brown patient who recently underwent a breast implant procedure. She shares her experience with Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery and the breast augmentation procedure.

Why Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery?DC Breast implants
I chose them because my OBGYN recommended them. Then, after I did extensive research, (and I’m one that only goes to the best doctors), I saw that the doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery had been well vetted and featured as one of the Top Doctors in DC in Washingtonian Magazine. Just reading up on Dr. Brown and his background I felt really good about him on paper. Then the test was going to be his bedside manner, and I absolutely adored him. He was great to talk to, he was very calm, informative, and I felt very comfortable.

Have you had any other procedures done?
Yes, I had SmartLipo for my abdomen and flank. However, it didn’t give me the results I wanted. The doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery did tell me that the results I was after wouldn’t be achieved by just this, but I tried it anyway. Although I did see some results it wasn’t exactly what I was looking for. So, I ended up coming back for a breast augmentation and a full tummy tuck.

What made you decide to have breast augmentation?
Since I was already under for the tummy tuck I thought why don’t we just go ahead and do the breast augmentation. I said I was happy with the size of my breasts, I just wanted them to look fuller. He gave me his honest opinion about what to do, what they’d look like, he listened and made sure we were on the same page so I knew what I was getting.

For Azalea, receiving breast implants was mainly about making her body proportional. Azalea says, “it’s about proportion. I have to have everything tailored because I have such a small waist. I’m a 2 or a 0 on the top, and a 6 on the bottom.”
