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.

Breast Reduction Surgery: What to Expect

During breast reduction surgery, patients are put under general anesthesia.

Typically, during a breast reduction surgery in Washington, DC, the surgeon will create an incision around the nipple and areola, extending downward along each breast. They will then remove any excess breast tissue, fat, and skin to reduce the size of the breasts and reshape them. Additionally, they will reset the nipple and the surrounding area, which is referred to as the areola.

If you have any questions or concerns about what your breast reduction surgery will look like, you should cover your entire procedure with one of our physicians during your consultations before your surgery.

I did a lot of research, and had multiple consults before ultimately choosing to move forward with my breast augmentation with Dr. Bruno. Of the multiple plastic surgeons I vetted, Bruno/Brown was by far the most articulate, thorough, professional and kind clinics. With any plastic surgery/operation, there is always a level of anxiety, because it is a big life decision, but they were able to put me at ease throughout the entire process. Their follow through has been equally impressive – Dr. Bruno called me the evening of my surgery to check on me, and his office called me the following morning to check on me as well. I cannot say enough good things about them, and would recommend them 10X over.
