Why Are So Many Women Choosing Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a revolutionary procedure that has recently grown in popularity.

There are many reasons labiaplasty is on the rise: The most notable is the increase in comfort many women report experiencing after undergoing the procedure.

What is Labiaplasty?

Labiaplasty is a surgical procedure in which the labia minora and/or the labia majora are sculpted and reshaped. Often the goal is to reduce the size of the labia and create more labial asymmetry.

This procedure typically takes less than an hour and the recovery time is minimal, but it’s recommended to hold off on any significant lower body exercises for several weeks. The labia are very sensitive structures, so it is important to choose an experienced plastic surgeon like Drs. Bruno and Brown.  The American Society of Plastic Surgeons further explains the procedure.

Top Three Reasons More Women are Choosing Labiaplasty

  1. Comfort: After surgery, many women often experience increased comfort during athletic activities such as cycling or horseback riding. Also, there is typically a decrease in irritation from tight clothing like yoga pants or bathing suits. Reducing the length of the labia prevents it from being twisted or tugged on by tight clothing or irritated by rigorous workouts.
  2. Appearance: Over time the appearance of the labia can change dramatically particularly after undergoing significant life events such as childbirth. Labiaplasty allows women to reshape their labia to increase self-confidence, aesthetic appeal, and create a more youthful look.
  3. Increased sexual pleasure: After surgery, there is often an increase in sexual pleasure as excessively large labia can cause pain during intercourse or even lead to sexual avoidance due to the anticipated pain of intercourse. Additionally, the clitoris can become more exposed leading to an increase in sexual pleasure.

May is for Moms: Get a Mommy Makeover!

Looking for a way to treat yourself or your mom this Mother’s Day? Consider a mommy makeover, the gift that will never be forgotten.

What is a Mommy Makeover?Mommy Makeover Plastic Surgery DC

A mommy makeover is a combination of surgical procedures tailored to your specific goals. It is particularly popular among mothers, hence the name because it works well to correct issues related to childbirth and breastfeeding. A mommy makeover works to restore your body to its form before motherhood, often in ways that diet and exercise aren’t able to.

What Procedures Can be Included in a Mommy Makeover?

Typically, a mommy makeover includes a combination of:

  • Tummy Tuck– reshapes the appearance of your abdomen by removing excess fat and tissue around the waistline and stomach
  • Liposuction– through careful, targeted suction, excess fat is completely and permanently removed from your trouble spots
  • Breast Enhancement– reshapes and resizes the appearance of your breasts
  • Breast Lift– reduces the appearance of aging on sagging, droopy breasts to restore a youthful, perky chest

One of the main benefits is that you are undergoing multiple procedures in one sitting, making it more efficient and shortening your recovery time. The procedure itself only takes 3-5 hours with a recovery time of as little as 2 weeks. While many patients elect to have an overnight hospital stay for comfort, it is not required. The procedure is unique in that Drs. Bruno and Brown will work with you to tailor the procedure to your individual circumstances. Read more about the procedure and the importance of choosing a board-certified plastic surgeon, such as Drs. Bruno or Brown, with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, a leading organization in the field of plastic surgery.

We hope to see you soon for your mommy makeover procedure or consultation!

Microneedling with PRP: Kourtney Kardashian’s blog shares the process

microneedling with PRP in Washington DCmicroneedling with PRP before and after Washington DCLove them or hate them, one thing we can agree on is that the Kardashians have really good skin. Kim and Kourtney swear by the virtues of the Vampire Facial (aka Microneedling with PRP) for flawless skin.

Microneedling is a non-invasive procedure that reduces the signs of aging, minimizes scarring, boosts collagen production, reduces hyperpigmentation and pore size, prevents premature aging, treats stretch marks, minimizes the appearance of age spots, helps improve texture and improves the appearance of rosacea.

Combining micro-needling with the body’s own PRP (Platelet Rich Plasma derived from your own blood) is used to kick-start the healing process. The rejuvenation action that is started by the micro-channels is dramatically enhanced by the growth factors contained in the PRP.

Read on to find out what it was like, or contact us today if you are ready to give Microneedling with PRP in DC a try!

 

My best friend Sarah Howard recently got a vampire facial and documented her experience. I love that she tells it like it is! Scroll down to hear about her treatment and check out her website, Beauty Banter, for beauty news and the best products!

Smartlipo DC: What are the Benefits of Laser Liposuction?

If diet and exercise alone have proved futile and ineffective, it may be time to consider DC Smartlipo, the laser liposuction procedure, as an extra step to achieving the goals you’ve been working toward.

Smartlipo DCWhat is Smartlipo?

It is the process of removing excess, unwanted pockets of fat on the body through careful, targeted suction. Smartlipo DC differs from the process of regular liposuction performed by DC plastic surgeons, Drs. Bruno and Brown, because a laser is used to assist in the process.

How is Smartlipo Different from Regular Liposuction?

Recovery time with Smartlipo DC is significantly less than with traditional liposuction. The Smartlipo procedure performed by top plastic surgeons, Drs. Bruno and Brown, also frequently results in less swelling or bruising around the treated area. Smartlipo is considered less invasive than traditional liposuction- especially because it leaves smaller incisions.

Like traditional liposuction, Smartlipo uses a small tube inserted just below the skin. However, with Smartlipo, there is also a small laser fiber inside the tube, which targets fat cells directly and allows the surrounding tissue to tighten more quickly. Smartlipo literally melts away fat, and it eliminates sagginess much faster than traditional liposuction, though the two procedures can be used in conjunction if necessary.

What to Expect from your DC Smartlipo?

The overall procedure typically only lasts 1-3 hours depending on the size of the area treated, and because it is a minimally invasive procedure it can be performed by Drs. Bruno and Brown under local anesthesia. While many patients are able to return to normal activity within a few days, you may need to wear a compression garment to support the treated area. Learn more about what you can expect from a body contouring DC Smartlipo procedure, performed by Drs. Bruno and Brown,here.

If diet and exercise fail to yield the results you’ve been working toward, consider treating yourself to a Smartlipo DC  procedure to help achieve your body contouring goals.

Finding The Right Plastic Surgeons For Your DC Brazilian Butt Lift 

The importance of Board-Certified and insured plastic surgeons for your Brazilian butt lift DC 

Brazilian butt lift dcPlastic surgeons have seen a recent but steady rise in the popularity of Brazilian butt lift procedures, about 18 and 26 percent over the last two years respectively, according to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons. However, there has also been a rise in the number of unlicensed and uninsured individuals impersonating plastic surgeons to perform Brazilian butt lift procedures, without the knowledge or equipment to do so properly.

There have been several cases reported recently of individuals impersonating plastic surgeons, claiming to be licensed and insured, so that they can perform Brazilian butt lifts on patients. Usually, they attract appeal solely because they advertise well below market prices. These unlicensed individuals impersonating plastic surgeons to perform Brazilian butt lifts, often have no medical knowledge and operate in very unsafe and unsterile conditions, usually without medical supplies.

The most recent case being Allison Spence, who claimed to be a plastic surgeon, the botched Brazilian butt lift she performed involved injecting industrial grade silicone- purchased from a hardware store- into the buttocks of her patient in an unsterile apartment, which she claimed was a clinic. The procedure resulted in the patient having an embolism because of a misplaced injection, which eventually caused her death. As a result of this botched Brazilian butt lift procedure, Allison Spence will be serving prison time under manslaughter charges.

Another example of one such individual performing an unlicensed Brazilian butt lift procedure resulted in the death of Kelly Mayhew from Queens, NYC in 2015, who received a buttocks injection in the practitioner’s basement. The individual who impersonated the practitioner to give the injections has still not been found. This growing cash business is resulting in senseless deaths, and it has to be stopped. It is important not only for victims to come forward, despite any regret or embarrassment they may feel, to receive the proper medical attention, but it is also important for individuals seeking buttocks augmentation to seek out licensed and insured medical professionals.

The appeal of extremely low prices for Brazilian butt lifts is tempting; however, the risks of having an unlicensed plastic surgeon are severe, many cases resulting in death from botched Brazilian butt lifts. If it seems too good to be true, it probably is. The quality of a Brazilian butt lift procedure will alter your body forever, it is definitely something worth investing it.

Not only is it important to look for a licensed and insured medical practitioner, but it is also important to look for the most experienced and skilled surgeons in the field, as their experience has a direct correlation to the quality of the results of your procedure. With experienced and expert surgeons, like those at Bruno|Brown Plastic Surgery, you can be sure you are receiving the top care available.

DC Breast Augmentation: Why Have Breast Augmentation Surgery?

Top rated DC Plastic Surgeons Drs. Bruno and Brown are often asked what benefits are associated with breast augmentation.

 

Every patient considering breast augmentation has to weigh the benefits and risks associated with the surgery, when making their decision. Here, we examine some of the reasons women choose to undergo breast enhancement surgery and what the possible benefits are.

When rating their experiences before and after undergoing breast augmentation surgery, women overwhelmingly report an increase of 7 points in their self-esteem and an increase of 6.5 points in their sexual satisfaction, using a 36 point measurement scale. You can read more about the results of this study conducted by the University of Florida here.

What Are the Benefits of Breast Augmentation?

The benefits of breast augmentation surgery have been shown to include major increases in positive body imaging, or how a woman views her body and herself. Breast enhancement can help a woman feel better about her appearance, increasing her self-confidence and self-esteem. It can also help make a woman feel like herself again, if major changes occurred to her body occurred over time through extreme weight loss, child birth or any other circumstances.

Whatever the reason, breast augmentation is a safe and popular procedure which helps women feel more comfortable in their bodies.

How Popular is Breast Augmentation?

Last year alone, 290,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed, and since 2000, breast augmentation procedures have risen 31% which accounts for nearly one third of the 115% rise in the number of overall plastic surgery procedures performed each year since 2000.

Can Breast Augmentation Benefit My Sex Life?

There are major benefits for women with increased sexual activity and overall satisfaction with their sex lives. This is heavily tied to the woman’s increased self-esteem and positive body image. In a recent survey, many women reported a 70% increase in sexual satisfaction after undergoing breast augmentation surgery, as well as a 61% increase in the frequency of their sexual activity. You can read more about this study, here.

Can Breast Augmentation Restore My Breasts After Childbirth or Weight Loss?

There are many motivations to receiving breast augmentation surgery if over time, breast shape and definition has changed or is not the same as it used to be. Many people who have undergone extreme weight loss suffer a loss of muscle and definition with their breasts, and breast augmentation can quickly and easily correct those problems. Many women also notice an extreme change in their breasts shape and definition after breast feeding. Before their child is born, most women will experience rapid breast growth due to the natural process of the body creating milk for the baby, but after breast feeding, the breasts can quickly lose that shape and definition. Breast augmentation can quickly and simply return the breasts to how they were before childbirth.

What Are the Risks of Breast Augmentation?

Besides the normal risks associated with any surgery, there are very few risks associated with breast enhancement surgery because it is a minimally invasive procedure, but the benefits to this procedure are substantial.
