Breast Aesthetic Procedures in Washington DC

Also Serving Mclean, Alexandria, Loudoun County and Arlington


Breast surgery is the surgical art of breast reshaping, volumizing and lifting in order to create beautiful, symmetric breasts that are proportional to the body. There are many approaches to achieve this, and they fall into categories of “breast lifts” and breast augmentation. 


Dr. Rad’s focus is perfect symmetry and he selects his approach based on each patients’ unique anatomy and lifestyle. In his hands, breast augmentation is safe and involves just a few days of recovery.

Photos are of patients who have given explicit written agreement to have them displayed. For patient privacy reasons, the majority of Dr. Rad’s patients prefer their before/after photos to remain off-line. However, Dr. Rad will be happy to show you, in the setting of a confidential consultation, a series of before/after photos, not displayed here, to address your specific concerns.

Dr. Rad uses state-of-the-art techniques in breast lift and breast augmentation.  For augmentation, Dr. Rad creates a pocket for the implant using direct electrocautery which results in virtually no bleeding and minimal swelling or pain after surgery. In contrast to how many plastic surgeons perform breast augmentation, there is no tearing of your tissue or blunt dissection to create the pocket.  Once the pockets are created, Dr. Rad takes extra precaution with cleansing the skin prior to placement of the implants. He uses a “Keller funnel” which allows smooth placement of the implants without risk of contaminating them.

For breast lift, Dr. Rad reshapes the breast skin using a “tailor tacking” method. You are elevated on the operating table so that gravity can take effect and bring your breasts downward. This allows Dr. Rad to assess accurately slight asymmetries which he takes great time and care to correct.

The cost of breast augmentation and/or breast lift depends on the procedure. Our staff will provide you with detailed estimates of the costs involved with surgery, including the surgical fee, anesthesia fee, implant cost and facility fee.  The surgical fees include the cost of surgery and all post-operative follow-up care and visits.  Financing is available through third-party finance companies for a portion of the surgical fees. Most importantly, know what you are buying: skill, and experience of a Board certified plastic surgeon should not be compromised. 

What Patients Are Saying

We consulted with three plastic surgeons before choosing Dr. Rad for my 17 year old son’s rhinoplasty and chin implant in March 2017. From the first meeting, we felt confident that Dr. Rad is a skilled, experienced and talented surgeon who pays attention to every detail. He is also a super guy – warm, caring, attentive and welcoming. Everything went smoothly and we are extremely happy with the results. We are very pleased with the whole experience and recommend him without hesitation.

“I am so grateful I chose Dr. Rad to perform my surgery. From the moment I walked in, I felt at ease & comfortable. The office is very clean & creative. He took time to answer all my questions, I didn’t feel rushed as I did w/ other surgeons I met. His staff was prompt to respond & very friendly. Post surgery I called over a holiday weekend w/ a question & he called me back quickly. It has been an easy recovery & trust him fully. My scars are fading quick & it’s only been 5 weeks! He’s the best!”

“My goal was to be a refreshed, happy, more confident version of “me.” As I prepared for surgery I had no unanswered questions and was totally confident about Dr. Rad’s skill and judgment. Interactions with Dr. Rad and his team at the time of surgery and follow up were efficient, and delivered with compassion and kindness. I recommend him without qualification.”

“Had a facelift with Dr. Rad. Not only did he do a magnificent job, but he was extraordinarily attentive and caring when I experienced an acute complication from surgery. He has an outstanding bedside manner. In his office, he never makes you feel rushed. Explains everything carefully. And is all around extremely kind and very talented. I have referred several people to him.”
