"I would highly recommend Dr. Brown if you’re considering plastic surgery. Dr. Brown was recommended to me 20 years ago by another plastic surgeon’s nurse. That in itself spoke volumes. Immediately upon meeting him, I knew I found the right doctor to perform my breast implant surgery. He was caring, knowledgeable, and made me feel comfortable with the entire process. Mostly I felt his passion for his work. I sensed he truly loved his profession and had set his bar very high to give the best and most natural results. My own expectations were exceeded from the care I was given prior to, during and after my procedure. My breast implants were a success and Dr. Brown gave me exactly what I wanted. I was super pleased with the results. I recommended my sister and roommate to Dr. Brown for breast augmentation and they were also very happy with their results. About 8 months later I had some medical questions regarding a separate health issue. I reached out to Dr. Brown for advice. He spent so much time talking with me. What stood out and resonated with me, was he offered to talk to other medical professionals on my behalf to translate what I didn’t understand. He went above and beyond. Fast forward 20 years and 2 kids later, my breasts were still looking great but I wanted to exchange them for silicone. I also wanted to tighten the skin and remove the bulge above my cesarean section scar. I now live in New York and traveled down to Virginia to consult with him. I was greeted by his nurse, Amber. She wears many hats and is present from start to finish. It relieves a lot of stress when you have that one person to correspond with during such big decision and process as this. I’m impressed with her involvement on so many levels. Amber is a gem for his practice and they compliment each other making them a dynamic team. She’s in constant contact with me and super caring and interested. I wished I lived closer because I think we would be great friends. That’s how they make you feel at the Loudon Center for Plastic Surgery. My consult with Dr. Brown was everything I expected it to be. His warmth was evenly matched with my memories. Together, we had a plan to address my concerns. I was pleasantly surprised to learn of some procedures to treat my abdomen that were minimally invasive. My dates were set and when I arrived to my appointment I was happy that Dr. Brown’s surgical center was convenient and private. A hospital setting can’t compare to the personal care you receive there. Now I know how Beyonce felt when she reserved the entire maternity floor to deliver her baby. His operating room staff to include Clint and Angela were fantastic providing me comfort before, during and after my procedure. They not only made me feel physically at ease but emotionally as well. They constantly assured me everything was going to be great. I’m one week out and my results are awesome. I have a lot of healing ahead of me in the weeks to come but can tell it’s going to be a vast improvement. I’m so grateful for having Dr. Brown as my plastic surgeon. I can only hope he will never retire. I recommend him to anyone and everyone, near or far. His precision and expertise is priceless and any distance is worth giving your only body the best it deserves."- K.O. / Google / Jan 18, 2020

"I normally don’t take the time to write a review but due to how difficult it was for me to make the decision on cosmetic surgery coupled with deciding on which doctor and team to trust, I feel compelled to share my experience with others. Dr. Brown and his team are absolutely incredible. I had so many questions and concerns leading up to my surgery. Dr. Brown, Amber and Melissa answered every single one, eased my nerves and made me comfortable every step of the way including the day of surgery. During my recovery, Dr. Brown and Amber were always available for any questions and concerns I had. They all have been wonderful and I am truly pleased with the results and exceptional service provided. Thank you all for taking such good care of me and I highly recommend Dr. Brown and team!"- Anonymous / Healthgrades / Dec 18, 2019
Youthfully Smooth and Full
Juvéderm treatments, on average, only last around 15 – 30 minutes based on which areas are being corrected. Your skin will be cleaned, then the injection sites will be selected. To reduce discomfort throughout the process, Juvéderm dermal fillers contain a local anesthetic. Following your procedure, you are allowed to go back to your daily routine; however, strenuous activity, including exercise, should be skipped for at least a day. You need to be cautious to not put your hands on your face immediately after your treatment to prevent massaging the gel into other areas.
You typically see a visible enhancement immediately following your Juvéderm procedure, but you could also develop light bruising or swelling in the injected areas of the face for approximately 7 – 10 days. The results of Juvéderm dermal fillers typically are visible for as long as a year; several patients notice that their improvements last over a year after multiple years of injections. Talk to Dr. Brown about how soon to schedule your next session at The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery to help maintain your results.
Juvéderm Ideal Candidates
How much does Juvéderm cost?
Your cost for a Juvéderm injection will be dependent on the amount of filler that is needed to achieve your cosmetic goals. Before your Juvéderm injections are administered, a personalized injection plan will be made to match your goals. Once this is done, your injector will estimate costs and discuss payment options.
Are Juvéderm injections painful?
Although many patients do not think it is needed, a numbing cream can be massaged into the treatment site before the injection if you are concerned about discomfort. After the injection, you might feel mild to moderate bruising and swelling that should be gone in 5 – 7 days. Please contact The Loudoun Center for Plastic Surgery if you have any severe discomfort or signs of infection following your injection.
What is the difference between a wrinkle filler and relaxer?
Relaxers and fillers improve wrinkles throughout the face but with different approaches. Injectable wrinkle relaxers, such as BOTOX, correct dynamic wrinkles created by repetitive muscle movements. Juvéderm is an injectable dermal filler that improves static wrinkles by increasing volume. Juvéderm is designed to correct mild to moderate lines and wrinkles or to reverse volume loss in your cheeks and lips.
What results can I expect?
You may need to wait 1 – 3 days to view the complete improvements from your injections. Generally, it takes only one appointment to reach your goals. However, you may make a second appointment if you want to improve your results.
How long do results typically last?
Your results from a Juvéderm injection may last from one to two years. This can vary based on which formula is selected and the injection site(s). The length of your results will be faster or slower, depending on the speed at which your body absorbs the product.
