DC Breast Augmentation
Breast augmentation provides women with an enhanced figure by resizing and reshaping the breast to achieve a fuller look. Every patient 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.
Breast Implants in DC
Breast implants are the most popular way to achieve a fuller, larger look. Despite its popularity, this procedure can be intimidating due to the decisions that come with it. Implant size, profiles, and material are important factors that will affect the way your breasts look and feel, but may seem like foreign concepts.
- Implant sizes are measured in cubic centimeter measurements – each patient’s body is different and may require a different sized implant to achieve a “one cup size up”
- Implant profiles are low, moderate, or high – these will determine the shape and projection of your breasts depending on your body type
- Saline or silicone implants – while both options are good, saline implants have a consistency similar to water while saline implants are more gel-like
Fat Transfer Breast Augmentation in Washington, DC
Fat transfer breast augmentations are the best of both worlds. This procedure allows you to remove unwanted fat from one area and place it in your breasts for a natural boost of volume.
Each patient has a different idea of what they want their desired outcome to look like, and some don’t want the look of an implant or don’t need a large enough increase in volume. That being said, this procedure is difficult to ensure a specific outcome. Your fat transfer breast augmentation DC results depend on how your body processes the new fat and how much it doesn’t use.
Breast Lift in DC
During a breast lift in Washington, DC, 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.
- 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
Breast Reduction Surgery DC
During a breast reduction in DC, excess skin, fat, and tissue are removed in order to achieve a reduced size and desired shape. Oftentimes the weight of the larger breasts causes them to sag, so the breast is also lifted during this procedure.
The amount removed will depend on the patient’s anatomy and goals. Breast reductions can be done to improve your aesthetic look, relieve physical discomfort, or both.
Breast Reconstruction in Washington, DC
Breast reconstruction procedures aim to help women reclaim and maintain their femininity by restoring or replacing the breasts. After enduring breast cancer and losing of one or both breasts, survivors deserve to resume a normal, pre-diagnosis life.
Reconstruction cases are different because it may be a different canvas the doctor is working with, you may have different expectations for your desired outcome, and there may be other factors involved that make it more unique than other cases. A consultation is especially important in these situations to determine the exact parameters of the case and ensure you are happy with the end result.
