2 out of 5 stars Breast Reconstruction

Not very happy

I am not satisfied with the results from my single breast reconstruction, left and breast lift, right. I wanted to wait and do lift on right later...after I lived with the reconstruction for awhile. He tried to talk me out of it in prior office appt. then finally succeeded in the pre-op room. He wanted them to "match". I gave in and regret it. I wish he would have listened to my wishes...

breast aug — great results, great experience

Dr. Brown and his staff are fantastic. I had consultations for breast augmentation with a few other surgeons in the DC area, and Dr. Brown was by far my favorite. He was professional, informative and was just an all around really kind person. He and his staff were patient in answering all of my questions (thanks so much, Lori and Lexie!) and made me feel comfortable throughout the entire...

My clothes fit better than before

I was diagnosed with breast cancer in May of 2015 and chose to have a double mastectomy with breast reconstruction. My breast surgeon referred me to Dr. Brown of Bruno Brown Plastic Surgery in Chevy Chase, and after my first meeting with Dr Coleman Brown, I knew I didn't need to look any further! His staff greeted me with smiles and made me feel very comfortable. My Oncologist and other...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

40 Year Old Mom, 2 Csections and a Tummy I Couldn't Live with - Annandale, VA

After visiting with several doctors, I decided to go with Dr. Brown. He has an endearing demeanor and was the only doctor that said he could do some abdominal lipo along with the tummy tuck for max results. I trusted him because I felt like he wasn't trying to sell me. I went for my 6 month review recently and told him I felt so much better but there were some places that I wasn't really over the moon with on my abdomen and sides. He's correcting that and only charges a nominal fee to pay for the medicine/supplies, he's not charging me for his time. He's worth being on the higher side of the spectrum simply for this guarantee. I'm also adding flank liposuction to the correction since I'll already be paying the facility fee. Dr. Brown makes sure you're happy and I feel like he'll always be "my guy" that I go to. I'm always annoying late to my appointments and he never seems to even care. So laid back and professional and his staff are always so caring and helpful.

29 Yrs Old, Deflated Breasts After 2 Kids. - Chevy Chase, MD

Dr. Brown was very patient the whole time and did not mind my hundreds of questions and concerns. Some doctors are quite arrogant and feel like you're challenging them if you are asking questions about safety, preventing infection, etc. Dr. Brown was not like that at all. He was humble but confident in his abilities and did a great job. I loved how he has a checklist things to do during surgery to prevent infection (that was my biggest fear). I got very scared of dying and leaving my family behind right before surgery and I started crying. He was super kind and comforting and that meant a lot to me. After surgery he was always quick to answer my questions and was good about following up to see how I was doing. I hope I never need another surgery but if I do, I'll definitely use him.

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

38 Years Old, 3 Pregnancies, 2 by C-Section

I used the Chevy Chase, MD location. I felt very comfortable with Dr Brown since I stepped in his office. He was very professional and really listened to my concerns about what I wanted. His staff is great-shout out to his assistant Rachel. She always responds to me very quickly and if she doesn't know the answer to my questions, she always contacts me back right away. I am one week into my full tummy tuck. I am very swollen and bruised (duh- just had major lipo and surgery)-totally expected. I had my follow up at one week. Dr says I look great and the final results should be wonderful. I think he is right cause so far, I am already pleased even with all the swelling and bruising. It only gets better from here. The front desk staff are always nice. The atmosphere is great. Sometimes the wait can be long but that is almost at any Dr office. They really seem to care about your concerns rather than just making a buck. Kudos for that. The only thing I was not so happy with was that neither Dr Brown nor his staff called me over the next few days to check up on me. I think this is important but I guess if you have a problem, you can always call them (which I did for a few questions) and received immediate feedback. I had the surgery at Sibley Memorial Hospital (Johns Hopkins) and they did call the next day to see how things were going.

5 out of 5 stars Breast Lift with Implants

I Feel Like I Got my Life Back - Chevy Chase, MD

Dr. Brown is amazing. He listened to all of my concerns, helped me decide on a shape of implant, and was incredibly responsive when I had questions after surgery. He did an amazing job. I had a huge amount of loose skin and very little breast tissue after weight loss/nursing. My breasts look fantastic. I healed quickly, my scars are minimal, and they look amazing. I couldn't be happier and can't recommend him highly enough. It was the best decision of my life!

Review - Dr Brown - Chevy Chase, MD

2 years ago I had bilateral mastectomy and after visiting 3 different plastic surgeons, I chose to go with Dr Brown and I am very glad I did! My sister was accompanying me on my appointments and after our visit with Dr. Brown we both agreed that he had such kind and gentle disposition that differed him form the rest. From the time of my first surgery he was there even before my breast surgeon had come to hospital. He stayed as long as it took to make sure the job was done perfectly. I was told by all plastic surgeons that the nipples cannot be saved. Now I know it is because they do not want to put the extra time and effort to make sure the blood circulation is sufficient on the area for this procedure. He not only saved both nipples, he kept a close watch to make sure all was healed and back to normal – My breast surgeon told me that she has not seen any plastic surgeon to do such a thorough job on the day of mastectomy- When it was time he put the implants which all went smoothly – Dr Brown is not only a perfectionist on his work, but he is one of the nicest and gentlest doctors, or better say human beings, I have ever met.

Tummy Tuck - Chevy Chase, MD

The day of the procedure he made sure that I was ok with his plan as well as reassuring my husband about the procedure. Gave me the opportunity to ask further questions before surgery. Again I cannot stop praising him. He is fantastic and very patient.
