Are you considering breast implants in Washington, DC?

Breast implants can help you feel more comfortable in your skin and increase your self-confidence.

It may be that you simply want to increase your breast size, or that you’ve lost breast volume from aging, pregnancy or significant weight loss. Whatever your reason for considering breast implants, the skilled doctors and Bruno | Brown Plastic Surgery can help.

Help choosing your implant type, implant profile, implant size and more.

There is a lot to consider when making your choice about breast implants.

We have three different breast implant options available:

  • Saline implants: A silicone shell is filled to your desired volume, increasing size and shape of cleavage
  • Silicone implants: More viscous than saline, a silicone shell is filled to the desired volume and offers a more natural look
  • Ideal implants: Uses a series of implant shells nested together and two separate chambers that hold saline, providing a natural feel and youthful look

We also offer breast augmentation with fat grafting for those patients that do not want to use implants.

Implant size:

First, you should discuss the overall size or volume you’re looking to achieve. Your experienced plastic surgeon can help you choose the best implant size for the appearance you desire but will also talk you through additional considerations, such as skin elasticity to accommodate the implants you choose, your lifestyle and more.

Implant projection:

In addition to volume, breast implants come in five different profiles: Low, low plus, moderate, full and extra full projections. The profile changes the projection of your breast implants, so while not directly related to the implant size, they can affect how large or natural the implants appear.

Input from your DC Plastic Surgeon:

Our experienced plastic surgeons will help guide you throughout the process of choosing your ideal breast implants. However, keep in mind that decisions about your implants, including their size, must ultimately rest with you. Be sure to choose a surgeon who makes you feel comfortable asking questions and gathering all of the information you need to make an informed choice.

Our physicians have spent many years helping patients choose their breast implants and can offer you invaluable input, ensuring you feel confident in your decision and your expectations for breast augmentation are met.
