From the start of your consultation all the way to the healing process, we are going to be with you every step of the way. At your consultation, you will get to know how specialized our doctors are in helping DC area patients find their desired appearance for their breast augmentation.

At the consultation, you may talk about what a breast augmentation can do to help you obtain the body you may have always wanted.

To prepare for your breast augmentation procedure, the surgeon will use the time to conduct a comprehensive health assessment, along with preparation about the procedure in general, post-procedure care, and of course answer any additional questions or concerns you may have.

While receiving the procedure the type of implant you have chosen, either silicone, saline, Ideal implants, or fat, are then used to reshape and contour your breasts. Breast augmentation incisions are made either around the areola, below the breast, or in the underarm. This helps achieve the desired shape, size, and lift of your breasts.

The procedure usually takes between 1-2 hours.

After your procedure is completed, patients are typically discharged the same day. The recovery period will require lots of rest and recuperation. The recuperation can take between 1-2 weeks and the doctor will discuss specific post-procedure steps for you to follow.

Breast Augmentation Options, DC

There are four different ways we may achieve the breast augmentation results you may desire. This can include options such as fat grafting, saline breast implants, silicone breast implants, and ideal implants.

Each type of implant you see will have specifically unique benefits and results. In order to figure out the best way to find the right breast augmentation procedure for you, is by discussing your goals, appearance desires, and lifestyle with your team and physicians.

Types of Breast Surgeries, DC

There are various types of breast augmentation or other breast surgeries you can consider. We offer a variety of services/surgical procedures that can help you narrow down your desired path.

We provide procedures such as:

  • Breast Augmentations with Fat Grafting

If you want to increase the size and or shape of your breasts without an implant, you may want to consider breast augmentation with fat grafting. You can feel more confident in your breasts and remove any unwanted or undesired fat from other areas of your body.

  • Breast Lift

If you have ever heard of a mastopexy, it means you have also heard of its more common name, Breast Lift. A breast lift will lift and enhance your breasts for a more youthful and perkier appearance. If you are feeling that over time your breasts have changed, you can consider a breast lift to combat that feeling.

  • Breast Reduction

Oversized breasts can create many problems in your everyday life. Things like simple tasks can even become difficult if you are left with pain or extraneous weight. Finding clothing that fits, completing household chores, and even exercising can become a difficult task.

This is why individuals may consider breast reductions or a reduction mammoplasty. This can help release pain and or discomfort you may have to your breast size, reducing the weight.

Many women that have overly large breasts can have neck and back pain, accompanied by self-confidence issues. We aim to work with you to understand how breast reduction surgery can improve your life and confidence.

  • Male Breast Reduction (Gynecomastia)

Male breast reductions, known as Gynecomastias, allow for reduced breast size and chest contour enhancement. Around 40-60% of men are affected by larger male breasts. Gynecomastias may help you look trimmer and more youthful.

Our physicians understand that your body image, self-confidence, and quality of life are deeply rooted in your appearance. In your consultation, your doctor will work with you to determine the best way to achieve your desired appearance.

  • Breast Reconstruction

After enduring breast cancer and losing one and or both of one’s breasts, survivors deserve a normal pre-diagnosis life. Breast reconstruction aims to help women reclaim their femininity by restoring or replacing one’s breasts.

During the experience of breast cancer, some women may undergo a mastectomy, double-mastectomy, or lumpectomy. This can result in losing one and or both breasts. Our doctors will work with you to understand and assist in how breast reconstruction can restore your quality of life and help you feel more confident, once again.

Our Bruno|Brown Plastic Surgery Patient chose our practice because:

“… 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.”

“I was very nervous. I didn’t get nervous until the day of surgery. And I almost left! I was so nervous. I thought to myself, ‘This is ridiculous, I can’t believe I am going to go under for cosmetic surgery.’ But I knew that I really wanted it. I had thought about it for 3 years, at least. As soon as Dr. Brown walked into the room, he saw my face, and he said ‘Hey, how are you doing this morning?’ and his voice just calmed me. And I said ‘Dr. Brown, I am so nervous’ and he said there was nothing to be nervous about. I said, ‘You’re right, because I trust you’. I remembered when the anesthesiologist gave me the medicine to go out, I remember him holding my hand as I was counting backward. And rubbing my hand and he was saying ‘you’ll be fine’ and that’s all I remember and then I woke up and everything was fine.”

What are the different types of breast implants in Washington, DC?Breast augmentation DC

There are two types of breast implants to choose from and it really just depends on your preference.

  • Silicone – Silicone breast implants are just as they sound, made of silicone gel. These implants flow within its shell a little differently than saline but still offers a natural and vivacious look. One big difference is that patients must be over the age of 22 to be offered the option of silicone implants for a breast augmentation as stated by the FDA.
  • Saline – Saline is sterile saltwater and these implants are available to anyone over the age of 18. This procedure is slightly different though, with saline implants the empty shell is inserted into the breast and then once in, it is filled to the desired size with saline fluid. These implants are more likely to be felt or seen when under very thin skin.

How to Know Which Breast Implant in Washington, DC is Best For You

When it comes to which implant you should choose, it is really up to personal preference as long as you are over the age of 22 so you have both options. However, when it comes to size that’s a different story. Size depends on what look you’re going for, your body size, shape, breast fullness, and what will be ideal for your health as well.

Breast Lift Procedure Overview

Over time your breasts can begin to sag, lose volume, and look less youthful than they once did. This can be due to factors such as pregnancy, weight loss, and aging. While it is entirely normal for the appearance of your breasts to change over time, you may feel less than confident in your appearance.

If you’re looking to improve the appearance of your breast volume, remove excess skin, and regain your youthful breasts, a breast lift might be right for you.

What happens during the breast lift procedure

In this procedure, incisions are made to sagging breasts in order to lift the breast and improve the overall contour. After the incisions are made, the underlying breast tissue is lifted and reshaped, the nipple and areola are repositioned, and any excess breast skin is removed.

There are four ways the procedure can be performed. Depending on the extent of the breast lift you need, your doctor will choose one of the following options:

  • Anchor: 3 basic incisions, one around the areola, one vertical to the breast crease, and one horizontal along the breast crease
  • Lollipop: 2 basic incisions, one around the areola and one vertical to the breast crease
  • Periareolar: 1 incision around the areola
  • Crescent: 1 along the top half of the areola

We’ll get to know you, discuss whether you’re a good candidate for the procedure, and explain what you can expect following the procedure.

A lift can give you the perky, youthful chest you once had and can even be combined with other breast procedures to achieve your desired results.

How Does a Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation Work?

Hundreds of thousands of women decide to undergo a breast augmentation procedure each year. The procedure is designed to help women increase their breast size, improve symmetry, and add cleavage. There are several ways to reach your breast goals through augmentation, but for those who do not wish to have breast implants, fat grafting is a great way to achieve fuller breasts without the need for an implant.

What sets the fat grafting breast augmentation apart

Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation DCThe fat grafting procedure is great for women who have unwanted fat in other areas of their bodies. During the procedure, we can take fat from one area of your body, such as the stomach, and transfer it into your breasts.
