Getting a Breast Reduction in Chevy Chase

Oversized breasts can create obstacles in your everyday life. These obstacles make it difficult to do simple tasks such as finding proper clothing, completing household chores, or exercising. Many women who have large breasts suffer from physical pain and self-confidence issues. Breast reduction can alleviate pain or discomfort by reducing the weight of your breasts and reshaping them to achieve your body goals. Our board-certified plastic surgeons will work with you to determine how breast reduction surgery can improve your confidence and quality of life.

In this surgery, excess skin, fat, and tissue are removed in order to achieve both a reduced size and a desired shape. The breast is also lifted during this procedure.

It’s common to feel sore and sensitive for a few days after the procedure. Pain medication is often used only for a few days following the procedure. Recovery can vary depending on how the individual heals, but most can return to regular activity after a week. You can return to exercise after you are fully healed and swelling has dissipated.

Getting a Breast Lift in Chevy Chase

A breast lift lifts and enhances your breasts for a more youthful and perkier appearance. If you feel that the appearance of your breasts has changed overtime, fight aging with a breast lift. To help women achieve maximum satisfaction with their appearance, our doctors focus on a holistic approach to breast procedures. Your doctor will work with you to determine if the breast lift procedure will achieve your desired look and will suit your lifestyle.

In this procedure, incisions are made to sagging or droopy breasts in order to lift the breast and improve the 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 different types of breast lift incision. The doctors will work with you to evaluate which type of breast lift incision will best suit your needs.

The four basic options are:

  • 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

Recovery time is between 1-2 weeks following the procedure. It can vary depending on how the individual heals, but most can return to regular activity after a week and exercise once you’re fully healed.

Getting Breast Implants in Chevy Chase

Breast augmentation provides women with an enhanced figure by resizing and reshaping the breast to achieve a fuller look. Every woman is different so we take a holistic approach to achieving your desired look. During your consultation, we will work closely with you to determine whether a breast implant or fat grafting can best help you achieve the ideal shape and size of your breast.

In the procedure, either saline, silicone, Ideal implants, or fat are used to reshape and contour the breasts. Incisions are made either around the areola, below the breast, or in the underarm in order to achieve the desired shape, size, and lift. There is slight variation in size availability for saline and silicone breast implants, but in general breast implant volumes range from about 120cc to 800cc.

It’s also important to keep in mind your skin elasticity so if you are prone to stretch marks your results may be best if you choose implants that won’t put more stress than necessary on the skin. In addition to volume, there is breast implant projection. The options include low, low plus, moderate, full, and extra full.

Immediately after the procedure, we will provide you with a supportive surgical bra to help control swelling. Typically breast augmentation recovery time is between 1-2 weeks after the procedure. It can vary depending on how the individual heals, but most can return to regular activity after a week and exercise after you’re fully healed.

Where To Get The Best DC Breast Augmentation

Breast Augmentation DCThe breast augmentation procedure is one of the most commonly performed plastic surgery procedures. In 2019 nearly 300,000 breast augmentations were performed in the U.S. making it the #1 most performed cosmetic surgical procedure. While the procedure is incredibly popular and well known, you may be unsure where to go to get the best possible results and the doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery can help.

Benefits of a DC breast augmentation

  • Increased breast size– The main benefit of the procedure is that your breasts will increase in size. Some patients wish to go much larger while others just want more volume. No matter what your specific goals are we can find the procedure right for you.
  • Improved confidence– Many patients experience an increase in confidence and self-image.
  • Implants or fat-grafting made to fit your goals– Not all augmentations are the same and we can choose the implant type that’s right for you, or if you’re looking for a more natural approach we can consider fat-grafting.
  • Improved overall symmetry– Most women experience asymmetry of the breasts which in some cases can be severe. Breast augmentation can correct this and give you the symmetrical chest you desire.

The Difference Between a Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation and a Breast Implant

Fat Grafting Breast Augmentation DCBreast augmentation is consistently one of the most common plastic surgery procedures performed. In 2019, it was the most popular cosmetic surgical procedure with just under 300,000 procedures performed in the U.S. While this procedure is extremely common, many people are unaware of the different options they have to achieve their breast goals. While breast implants tend to be the most common option, some patients opt for a fat grafting breast augmentation procedure. If you’re considering undergoing a breast augmentation but aren’t sure what procedure is right for you, keep reading.

Breast augmentation with fat grating vs breast implants

  • Fat grafting– This procedure involves using liposuction to remove fat from other areas of your body, such as the stomach, and placing it in the breast to give you a more enlarged breast. Fat grafting leaves minimal scarring and can address other areas of concern where you would like fat removed. This procedure can be combined with others, such as a tummy tuck so you can address multiple concerns at once.
  • Implants– It’s important to note that not all implants are the same. We work with Ideal implants, silicone implants, and saline implants. Each can give you a different look and feel which will help us decide which one lines up best with your goals. This procedure can also be combined with other procedures. We’ll discuss your options in your consultation.

How to decide if fat grafting or breast implants are right for you

During your consultation, we’ll discuss your goals and how each option could benefit you. Each type of implant can produce a different look and so can fat grafting. Depending on the look you’re going for, how you feel about implants vs. fat grafting, and your current body, we’ll help you decide which option is best for you.
