Reclaim Your Body With A DC Tummy Tuck

DC Tummy TuckDo you suffer from excess skin and fat in your midsection and no amount of diet or exercise seems to help? You may be a candidate for a tummy tuck procedure. The tummy tuck is designed to reshape your midsection by removing excess skin and fat, boosting your confidence and improving your physique.

Is the DC tummy tuck right for you?

If you’re curious about the procedure, you should first consult with a plastic surgeon who can discuss your specific goals and how to best achieve them. Many candidates are women who have had children and wish to restore their pre-pregnancy bodies, others have simply lost weight and had excess skin left behind. We recommend that candidates are in good general health, are near their ideal weight or figure, and have realistic expectations for their outcome. We aim to provide the best possible result and help our patients reclaim their bodies.

How the tummy tuck in DC works

Each case is different, and for that reason, we approach each tummy tuck individually. We start by addressing your main concerns. Is it loose skin that bothers you, excess fat, your overall shape, or stretch marks? These are all factors to consider prior to a tummy tuck. We offer a full, mini, and extended tummy tuck. Each type of tummy tuck is different and selected based on your unique case. We also consider other goals you have and can combine the tummy tuck with other procedures.

Finding a Top-Rated Plastic Surgeon in the World of Social Media

Top Rated Plastic SurgeonSocial media has changed the way we live our lives. While much of its original purpose was to connect people, it has evolved into something much more. People turn to their social media accounts for all types of reasons, but now more than ever, people use it as a resource to find a top-rated plastic surgeon.

The “Dolls” of social media

A new trend has started on Instagram where cosmetic surgery patients create private accounts to review plastic surgeons, their nurses, hospitals, and recovery houses. Often times they refer to themselves as “dolls”, naming themselves after their doctor, such as “Doctorsnamedoll”.

These “dolls” host private accounts, usually on Instagram, and post before, during, and after photos of their surgery. Users can find women, or men, with the same body build and similar features as them as a way to get a glimpse of what their potential surgery would be like.

While this can be a great resource of information for those looking into plastic surgery, users must also be aware that not everything you see is accurate.

When looking for a top-rated plastic surgeon on a platform like Instagram, buyer beware

Many of these accounts can be reliable as far as reviews of a surgeon go, but as with any social media platform, you may only be seeing part of the truth. Some of these “dolls” are paid for reviews. Whether it be in free surgery or money, it skews the reviews you see online, not to mention the capabilities of photoshop.

The positives of social media

While much of the information seen online isn’t 100% accurate or backed up by science, many users and “dolls” have formed strong supportive communities. These users and “dolls” have called out bad surgeons for malpractice and made their stories heard. Others have reached out to support those currently recovering from surgery who may be struggling with some of the speed bumps of recovery and bonded over their own struggle.

It has opened up a door to show the sides of plastic surgery that not everyone thinks about when considering a plastic surgeon. The community aspect is a major benefit of these “doll” accounts and many of them prove to be supportive of one another.

Top-rated plastic surgeons you can trust

Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery has been helping patients find the best plastic surgery approach for them for years. We advise patients on what is appropriate for their individual situation and discuss any questions they have so that they have a good understanding of what to expect before the procedure. We strive to provide the best results possible so that our patients leave satisfied and feel more confident about themselves.

Schedule an appointment with one of our top-rated plastic surgeons today.

Restore Aging Skin Through Micro-Needling with PRP in Washington, DC

Micro-needling with PRP is a nonsurgical treatment that can help reduce the signs of aging and minimize the appearance of acne scars, and dark spots. Micro-needling with PRP can be used on the face, neck, arms, hands, décolleté, and legs to rejuvenate the skin.

Micro-needling, also known as collagen induction therapy (CIT), uses a small mechanical pen to make tiny channels in the skin at a precise depth to trigger the body’s natural healing process. The micro-needling will trigger the production of new collagen and elastin which improves the skins texture and tone. Unlike some other types of treatments, micro-needling has very few constraints and is safe to use on all ethnicities and skin types with very little recovery time or side effects.

micro-needling with PRP

The Micro-Needling with PRP Procedure

The Micro-needling procedure can take between 20-40 minutes with a recovery time of 4-6 days. First, PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma) is obtained by drawing a small amount of blood from your arm into a sterile tube and then separated out from the other elements of the blood using a centrifuge.

The PRP is applied topically to your face during and after the micro-needling procedure, which penetrates the top layer of skin without damaging it. PRP also speeds up the healing process. Your doctor will work with you to determine how many sessions you will need to achieve your desired look. Depending on the severity of your skins texture you may need anywhere from three to six sessions.

You can learn more about the micro-needling procedure from The American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Benefits of Micro-Needling with PRP

Micro-needling with PRP will continue to activate the skin’s repair process until your desired level of skin rejuvenation is achieved. Patients can expect mild redness for a few days after the procedure, but this can easily be covered with makeup.

Benefits of micro-needling can include:

  • Reduced appearance of scars
  • Minimized appearance of age spots and fine lines
  • Improvement in appearance of rosacea
  • Skin tone and texture becomes firmer and more even
  • New collagen and elastin produced
  • Reduced hyperpigmentation
  • Pore size shrunken
  • Reduced stretch marks

We look forward to hearing from you to schedule your Micro-needling with PRP procedure soon.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This January Get Rid of Your Double Chin with Kybella in Washington, DC

If you’re sick of stubborn fat under your chin, Kybella injections may be the perfect solution for you! Kybella in Washington, DC is a non-invasive treatment that will contour your chin for a more defined jawline.

This January, Bruno | Brown is offering 25% off Kybella injections.

KybellaBenefits of Kybella in Washington, DC

Kybella will reduce the excess fat many people have under their chin without surgery. This non-invasive treatment destroys fat cells which results in a noticeable reduction in fullness under the chin.

Once the fat cells are destroyed, they can no longer store additional fat, leaving you double-chin free. This procedure takes as little as 15-20 minutes with no recovery time. You may experience mild swelling which will subside after a few days.

Khloe Kardashian in Favor of Kybella

Reality TV star, Khloe Kardashian, has been a longtime fan of Kybella. She partnered with them for the brand’s Live Chin Up Campaign, which was designed to help people keep their “chin up” and not let things that bother them stand in their way. Khloe Kardashian is in favor of Kybella’s “chin up” attitude to help men and women look and feel their best.

Kybella in Washington, DC: The Go-to Double Chin Treatment for Men and Women

Both men and women can be self-conscious about their double-chin. Stored fat in the chin area doesn’t just plague people with excess body weight- genes and aging can cause double chins on people with otherwise ideal BMI’s.

During your consultation, the doctors at Bruno | Brown will assess your chin area to determine if Kybella is right for you. They will work with you to customize your treatment and target the fat cells under your chin to reach your ideal look.

During the procedure, multiple small injections of Kybella are injected into the treatment area under your chin. Kybella is administered in two treatments, and our physicians will decide if you need additional treatments based on the amount of remaining fat.

Contact us today to schedule your Kybella procedure and receive 25% off this month.

 

 

 

 

FaceTite in Washington, DC: One Of 2019’s Biggest Trends In Plastic Surgery

FaceTite in Washington, DC is expected to be a big trend in 2019.

FaceTite is a new revolutionary contouring procedure that tightens and lifts the skin around your face and neck. The procedure is minimally-invasive and gives patients the results of a facelift without the surgery, scarring, or stitches. FaceTite can also be combined with liposuction in the jowls and neck areas to achieve more contouring and a more youthful appearance.

FaceTite on the rise with Washington, DC residentsFacetite DC

Minimally-invasive cosmetic procedures have grown nearly 200 percent since 2000, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. Allure Magazine recently named FaceTite one of 2019’s biggest plastic surgery trends:

“Radio frequency technology, like FaceTite, to address neck and jawline sagging and heft is a procedure New York City-based, board-certified plastic surgeon Adam Kolker, anticipates to skyrocket in 2019, especially among men. ‘It’s a real revolution in what we’ve been doing to date,’ he says. Depending on the severity of the patient, it can be done ‘in conjunction with other procedures, like liposuction or microneedling.’”

The doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery will work with you to determine which areas to target in order to achieve your desired look. The procedure is performed under local anesthesia so you will experience little to no discomfort.

The FaceTite procedure in DC

 FaceTite has little recovery time compared to a traditional facelift and can be used in numerous areas including the neck, jowls, cheeks, and jawline.

The FaceTite procedure is performed with a small tube (cannula) that is inserted under the skin and passes radiofrequency energy to the external electrode placed on the skin’s surface. The tube heats the tissue causing it to contract and tighten. The procedure also stimulates collagen growth so patients will see immediate results, as well as continued improvement in the skin’s firmness over the next 6 months.

When it comes to the delicate facial area, choose an expert plastic surgeon like the doctors at Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery, who are knowledgeable and experienced in their field.

mommy makeover DC “It seems like a big surgery because it’s doing a lot, but honestly, combining a breast surgery with a tummy tuck doesn’t add any recovery time. Might as well do them at the same time! There are also cost savings in doing multiple procedures together. 

Results were amazing. They exceeded my expectations. There was no way I could diet and exercise and get the body back that I wanted. You can’t do anything about excess skin, folded skin, and I had twins! So I had a lot of extra skin.”
