5 out of 5 stars Chin Liposuction

Chin Smart Lipo - Chevy Chase, MD

At the age of 48 I had developed a double chin or as my wife likes to say a gobble gobble :). I finally decided to do something about it. I was recommended to Dr. Bruno (Chevy Chase MD). 9/26/13 I went into his office at 2pm and was out by 2:45. My experience - my neck area was prepped (cleaned), then numbed - you could feel a tiny pinch, but far less than getting numbed at a dentist. ...

5 out of 5 stars Tummy Tuck

Journey to Flat Abs - Chevy Chase, MD

I am a 41 year old mother of a 4 year old son and during my pregnancy I gained a lot of weight. So much so that I was left with a lot of abdominal loose skin and stretch marks. After years of trying to work out to flatten my stomach, I finally decided to go for a tummy tuck. My initial consult was scheduled for June 4, 2012. I had a lot of my initial questions answered and I left the office...

5 out of 5 stars Breast Augmentation

Wonderfully skilled and caring surgeon

Dr. Bruno is a highly skilled surgeon who treats his patients with the utmost care. I have personally undergone multiple procedures with Dr. Bruno and could not be happier with the care and results I received. I would highly recommend Dr. Bruno to anyone considering the services of a plastic surgeon.

5 out of 5 stars Mastectomy

Brilliant, Skilled, Caring

I cant think of a more competent or compassionate surgeon than Dr. Bruno. I have been a patient since my mastectomy in 20008. I later had reconstruction and now visit for cosmetic dermatology. He is discreet and above all a quality surgeon and person

23 Y/O, 5'3" 120 Lbs, 325-345 Natrelle Ispira. Wanting Proportionate and Natural-Looking. Washington, DC

I've known that I wanted breast implants after realizing my small breasts would never grow bigger than an A cup. My sister has the exact same body as me but she has beautiful and full b cups, while mine are small and lack breast tissue. I just moved back home after graduating and have been able to save up a good amount of money. While I had expected I might have surgery in my 30s, I realized...

5 out of 5 stars Male Breast Reduction

54 Year Old Guy Disgusted with His Man-boobs

Dr. Bruno was great to work with, led me through my options, put me at ease, was professional from beginning to end, and based on the results, is skilled at restoring a man's self esteem by removing the fat that causes man boobs. Recovery was a snap and post-procedure care was perfect. I strongly recommend Dr. Bruno! I'm a happier man now and don't miss the "twins" at all. Haven't had to crop any photos since. Yahoo!!!
