What is breast augmentation?
Breast augmentation surgery increases the breast size using implants to create larger, fuller breasts, attractive proportions, and symmetry. This procedure is ideal for women who have always had small breasts and have wanted larger ones or women who have lost breast volume due to weight loss, the natural process of age, or pregnancy and nursing.
Feminine, full, curving breasts are an important part of the physique for many women. With breast augmentation, women can experience the confidence that often comes with an attractive, proportionate, appealing appearance. We provide breast augmentation in Washington DC for our patients who would like to increase the size of their breasts and enhance their shape and symmetry.

Breast Augmentation Patient Testimonials
Dr. Huang is the BEST! Incredibly smart, and she is easy to talk to and ask questions. Her talent with Plastic Surgery is award winning. I felt like Dr. Huang understood exactly what I was looking to accomplish with my Breast reduction surgery. She completely exceeded both of our expectations with the final results. I would highly recommend Dr. Kathy Huang to everyone.

What amazing results and experience! Dr. Huang really listened to what I wanted out of my breast augmentation. She was very down to earth, friendly, and personally called me the afternoon of my surgery to see how I was feeling.
Dr. Friedman and his staff were amazing. I couldn't be happier with the results of my breast augmentation. Dr. Friedman made my entire experience perfect!

I would recommend Dr. Forman any day of the week. From my initial consultation thru my follow up visits, his entire team were so thoughtful and attentive. After having nursed 3 babies, my breasts were empty and none of my bras or clothes fit right. He made me the best version of me while still looking totally natural. If you didn't know I'd had surgery, you'd never be able to notice. exactly what i wanted.

Is Breast Augmentation Surgery Customizable?
Every woman’s physique and breasts are different. For every woman, breasts are a unique size, shape, and projection. Because the breasts are not only different for each woman, but each woman has their own particular desires for their breast appearance, breast augmentation in Washington DC is customized to meet the needs of each individual.
During your consultation, your surgeon will examine your breasts and skin and discuss your aesthetic goals. From there, a personalized surgical plan is designed to meet your needs and achieve the beautiful, rounded, appealing breasts you’ve always wanted. Your surgical customization will include discussing your implant type, size, shape, profile, and texture.
Your surgeon will discuss your implant choices with you and breast surgery options in addition to implants, such as breast augmentation combined with a breast lift, or other options, in great detail. You will be able to test different shapes and sizes of implants. Your consultation is designed to empower you with the ability to make a fully informed decision and move forward feeling confident about your choice.
What are My Implant Choices?
There are two main types of implants: silicone and saline.
- Silicone Implants
- Saline implants
Silicone implants are made of viscous silicone gel. This gel feels and looks very natural, providing a youthful bounce and shape very similar to natural breasts. Silicone implants achieve a full, plump appearance. There are a variety of silicone options to choose from, including the popular “Gummy bear” implants, which provide a teardrop-shaped, very natural-looking, large breast size.
Saline implants are filled with sterile saltwater. The outer shell is made of thin silicone. Saline implants are placed into the breasts before they are filled and gently inserted through to the breasts via a small incision in the belly button or armpit. Once the implants are in place, your surgeon will precisely fill them with the saline solution, achieving round, symmetrical, beautifully-youthful breasts. Saline-filled implants have less of a natural feel than silicone implants, but they are considered the safer implant choice because saline is completely harmless in the rare case of rupture.
Other breast procedures
Other than breast augmentation, we provide other breast procedures for patients who have additional or different needs for their breasts. Other breast procedures include:
During a breast lift, the breasts are lifted higher on the chest wall, loose skin is removed, and the breasts are reshaped to provide a more appealing contour and bounce. The nipples may also be repositioned to sit higher on the breasts and tilt upward youthfully and attractively.
During a breast reduction, overly large breasts are reduced to achieve better comfort and shape. Excess skin and tissue are removed, resulting in more youthful, sculpted, and smaller breasts.
Breast reconstruction rebuilds the shape and appearance of the breast or breasts. This surgery is usually provided for cancer survivors who have undergone a mammoplasty as a part of their treatment. Breast reconstruction is performed with your own tissue or with implants, or with a combination of both.
Breast revision surgery is performed to replace the existing implants with new implants. This may be done due to a change in personal taste or preference, an implant malfunction, or to correct changes in the breast due to pregnancy or other factors.
