Often patients suffer from excessive muscle animation deformity after a mastectomy. Normal daily motion and activity can cause wrinkling and discomfort in the chest area. This is caused from placing implants under the muscle with no breast tissue between the muscle and the skin.

“I have been a patient of Dr. Bruno’s for several years now. He’s not only a talented surgeon, but he has a very gentle, comforting manner. I broke my nose recently, which would have been extremely traumatic if it weren’t for the calm and confident way he handled the situation. Based on past experience with him, I knew that he was the best person to do the surgery. The surgery was easy and painless and my nose looks great.”
“Dr. Brown is a true artist and very concerned with aesthetics when approaching all procedures. I had my ear lobes repaired from big gauges and he has fixed them better than I was born with! They are so cute and perfect now. I would trust him to improve anything I found bothersome about myself!”— Jourdan D.
