Your Consultation

The consultation process marks the first step to achieving your goals and is arguably one of the most important parts of the entire process..  Dr. Pittman prides himself on listening closely to each patient's goals and devising a realistic, customized surgical treatment plan for each patient.  Before the consult, you will speak with Dr. Pittman's Patient Care Coordinator Leeanne who will gather pertinent information and make sure you are prepared for the consultation.

Dr. Pittman uses the Crisalix virtual imaging system to help patients visualize what is possible in all types of cosmetic breast surgery.
Generally, once you have chosen a surgical date, you will return to the office for a pre-operative visit.  At this time, you will review the surgical plan with Dr. Pittman, sign the appropriate surgical consents and get your final necessary documents like pre-op instructions and prescriptions.
While the pre-op process can be a time of stress and anxiety, Dr. Pittman's entire team is available to assist you with every detail.  After all, this process should be a time of excitement rather than stress.

Can I go from a larger chest size to flat chested?

Breast Reduction

Member Response:

Breast reduction is a tailor made operation. Most women can go significantly smaller. The most important thing is to keep the blood supply to your nipples. My recommendation is to see a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss your options. I am located in Washington DC and would be happy to see you.

Skin rejuvenation and resurfacing

Member Response:

My suggestion is that she have a scar revision on her lip. That thick scar tissue can be removed and the lip repaired in a meticulous fashion.

I want to have my nipples removed are doctors okay with it???

Cosmetic Surgery

Member Response:

Having your nipples completely removed is an extreme solution to an issue that may be solved more easily. Have you considered a nipple reduction or Botox to keep them from getting hard?

capsular contracture

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

Your surgeon should absolutely NOT use the same implant. The leading theory of capsular contracture is biofilm produced by bacteria. In theory, your pocket is contaminated. Removing the implant and reusing it will compromise the sterility of the pocket. Your implant warranty should cover the cost of the new implant anyway. I would suggest you ask your surgeon to use a new, sterile implant. If your warranty does not replace the implant, it’s well worth spending the money to get a new one.

The implants do not need replacing just because they are 10 years old.

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

In DC, breast augmentation ranges from 5500-9500 dollars depending on how complex the surgery is. The best thing to do is consult with a board-certified surgeon.

Is it safe to get breast implants, can they bust and harm you ?

Breast Augmentation

Member Response:

These are common questions that I often get from women considering breast augmentation. The goal of the operation is to give you the enhancement that you are looking for with minimal downtime and no long term limitation in daily activities. I ask my patients to avoid swimming for 6 weeks. This is mostly because keeping the incisions dry allows them to heal better. You know how your fingertips get swollen and wrinkled in water? Your new incisions can also swell like that and prevent you from getting the best result. Overall, after 4-6weeks, you can return to normal activity with no limitations.

Patient Testimonials

"Thoughtful, thorough and knowledgable" I could not be happier with putting my trust and health into Dr. Pittman's care. Dr. Pittman is an industry leader and someone who I feel privileged to have care for me. I cannot say enough about my experience with him or his amazing team.
"Perfection" Dr. Pittman is great at what he does! He is full of knowledge and was a delight to work with! I am very pleased with my results!
"The Best Care I Could Have Asked For" I couldn't begin to accurately express my appreciation for everything Dr. Pittman has done. I felt 100% confident with my entire treatment from the diagnosis of my cancer through surgery and follow-up. I couldn't be happier with his professionalism, skill and care for his patient!
"Dedicated, Caring Expertise" From my very first appointment with Dr. Pittman I knew he was the right doctor with the right experience to perform my Gynecomastia correction. His welcoming demeanor and active listening assured me that he was someone who would be truly invested in my journey. He is trustworthy, transparent, and has been consistently willing to do what it takes to make me comfortable (be it an extra check-up on the weekends, answering a late night call or text, or following-up with me between appointments).
"Exceptional Experience" At our first meeting Dr. Pittman was amicable, trusting, and intellectually inviting to learn about his practice and personal goals. Dr. Pittman and his exceptional team were a recommendation to me, for which I was very pleased. I have since shared my experiences with multiple associates and friends with high recommendation.
"Easy and Perfect Experience!" Dr. Pittman made me feel comfortable and informed the entire consultation - I knew after the initial meeting that he was the doctor I trusted to perform my surgery. His attention to detail, knowledge about this surgery, and his warm demeanor made me feel at ease. It has now been 4 weeks and I could not be happier with the results! I highly recommend him!
"Truly Phenomenal" I wish every doctor could be like Dr. Pittman. Brilliant. Honest. Forthright. Compassionate. Patient. His entire team made me feel like a VIP from beginning to end. He's a surgeon with the soul of an artist, and he changed my life for the better. Thank you, Dr. Pittman!
"Fantastic experience all around" Dr. Pittman is a talented surgeon with an easy going, patient bedside manner. It was easy to explain what I wanted, and I couldn't be happier with the results. I was so well taken care of.
"Breast Master!" Working with Dr. Pittman was an amazing experience. I had done quite a bit of research prior to meeting with him. He exceeded all of my expectations. He thoroughly answered all of my questions (and I had a lot of them). I am in my mid 30's and have wanted a breast aug for as long as i can remember. I was always too nervous to have the procedure done because my natural breasts are very small and pointy (tubular). I have very little breast tissue to work with and I didn't want the final result to look like 2 balls attached to my chest. Dr. Pittman helped me determine the best options to achieve the natural look that I desired. The Software he uses was also a huge plus. Lastly, his team was awesome to work with. The whole experience was better than I imagined.
"My overall experience has been FANTASTIC!" Dr. Pittman's work is GREAT. A breast reduction is something I have wanted for over 10 years and finally took the step and made a consultation visit. As soon as I met Dr. Pittman I knew he was the doctor I wanted to do my breast reduction. He listened to my wants and answered all of my questions. I scheduled my surgery within 3 weeks and I have no regrets. His work is phenomenal. He finally gave me the breasts I have always wanted. I am so happy! I fully recommend Dr. Pittman!!
"Wonderful physician" Dr.Pittman is an incredible doctor who takes the time to listen to his patients. He is patient and he truly wants what is best for each individual. He spent nearly 2 hours with me during my initial consultation and when I apologized for taking so much of his valuable time he told me not to worry and that he wanted to make sure I left with all of my questions answered. He walked me through several options and helped me pick the best one for me without judgement. On surgery day he was great, on time and explained everything. I actually enjoy the follow up visits because he is so kind and because the results of my surgery are amazing. He is so skilled and talented and honestly I sing his praises to anyone that will listen. It is hard to find a physician you have full trust in and Dr. Pittman is one of those rare few. His work speaks for itself, but on top of that he is a great guy who cares about his patients. Look no further-- come see Dr. Pittman and his wonderful staff!
"Exceptionally skilled and caring surgeon" Dr Pittman has exceptional skill, artistry & integrity. When I needed corrective surgery to repair a botched abdominoplasty & liposuction, Dr. Pittman performed the corrective surgery. The level of care was extraordinary and the outcome was amazing. I am so glad I was referred to him. l trust him. l am very happy with the surgery and with how I was treated, He is patient, thorough and considerate. I highly recommend him.
"Best decision I've ever made for myself" I would send my family members and closest friends to Dr. Pittman and have already encouraged many to do so. I've spent the past 11 years working as a medical device rep and almost every day of those years has involved being in surgeries. My operation with Dr. Pittman was my first personal surgical experience and being the patient was a complete role reversal. From start to finish my expectations were exceeded, but I went into this feeling confident they would be. After deciding to have a breast lift I reached out to the large network of DC area device reps, I asked to be connected with all reps who work with plastic surgeons. I was put in touch with 7 individuals and every single person put Dr. Troy Pittman as their top, and sometimes only, recommendation. That was insight I knew could be trusted and followed. I cannot thank him and his staff more for such an amazing and life changing experience.
"Totally honest physician" I feel super lucky to have come across this physician as he has had my best interest only. My experience has been phenomenal with him over the past year. Thank you Dr. you are amazing and of one of few to honor the values for your patient. I am impressed by everything of you.
"Can`t be more happy" Dr. Troy is extremely knowledgable and sets expectations very clearly so you know what to expect. Always listens and responds to any of your concerns.Highly recommend
"Dr. Pittman and Staff are wonderful!" Dr. Pittman is professional, and highly knowledgeable. He makes you feel comfortable and carefully listens to your concerns.
"The BEST and ONLY doctor I trust" Dr. Pittman helped me feel so at ease prior to my surgery, he was kind and answered all my questions. His professionalism and knowledge is unmatched. I will never go see anyone else and highly recommend him to anyone who is a perfectionist and wants to see the most amazing results.
"Great Experience" I am very pleased with my visit with doctor Pittman. I feel I am in safe hands.I have been a patient of Dr Pittman for more then for years and always grateful to the excellent care I am provided with by him and his staff.
"Once I met Dr Pittman I knew he was the one" After having a few consultations I never felt comfortable or willing to move forward with actually having a breast augmentation but after I met Dr Pittman I was like where do i sign and how soon can we have my surgery?! Dr Pittman is the best and following through with the surgery was the best thing I have done for myself. I would recommend Dr Pittman to anyone!!!!
"Amazing, knowledgeable and compassionate" Dr. Pittman performed a reconstruction after a double mastectomy for me a year ago. I look and feel 25 again with no visible scars. Dr. Pittman not only was able to restore my breasts, they are better than they were. I will forever be grateful. He is a true artist in his field.
"Exceptional" Dr. Pittman came highly recommended via a friend who heard wonderful things about the practice. She was spot on! Even though she and I do not know anyone personally who has come to this practice you can't ignore quality representation. From the moment I walked in I knew I had come to the right person for my breast augmentation. The atmosphere and staff enhanced the experience further. Dr. Pittman has state of the art equipment allowing you to see real time what your end result will look like. He provided honest feedback and advice allowing me to make an informed decision. This further allowed me to make the correct decision before undergoing a huge decision and spending a large sum of money. I can not thank Dr. Pittman enough for the confidence and exceptional work he has provided me. His presentation, social media, patient reviews, etc. speak for the pride he takes in his work! Thank you again!
"Fantastic" Dr. Pittman is very personable and listens to your concerns and what you want. I was having a difficult time deciding what size to go with. He guided me to go a bit bigger than i had intended and I am so very glad i did!
"Amazing!" Dr. Pittman is a sensitive, caring perfectionist who worked with me to get the best outcome possible. He inspired trust from the moment I met him. I was never nervous or doubted that I was in very capable hands.
"Amazing Experience!!!" When I first walked into Dr. Pittman's office I felt so insecure about my body. I never felt confident in clothes/bathing suits. However, with the help of Dr. Pittman and his team, I have been able to feel good about myself! During all operations and appointments, I have felt so comfortable, relieved, and well taken care of.
"Even better than I expected" For the past several years, I've felt self conscious about my breasts. When I finally decided to explore cosmetic options, I made an appointment with Dr. Pittman because he has such an incredible reputation in the field. I was able to secure an appointment quickly and with ease, and found both Dr. Pittman and his staff to be incredibly kind, thoughtful, and professional. Even when I requested a second consultation ahead of my surgery, they were able to fit me in. Throughout the process, they've always made me feel seen, heard, and well cared for. The surgical center itself is also great. Its clean, and the staff was wonderful. My post surgery experience has been very positive as well. Dr. Pittman and his staff give clear and well informed answers to all of my questions. For the first time in years, I catch myself smiling when I see the body in the mirror. It means so much to feel confident in my own skin and Dr. Pittman and his staff helped me get there!
"Simply amazing!" Dr. Pittman is an incredibly skilled surgeon, and I'm so happy about my results. My previous breast reconstruction left me with a cosmetic result that challenged my self esteem. Dr. Pittman was not only able to correct the imperfections, but I look even better than before. It's so important to me that my surgeon also knows how to listen to my concerns and make me feel comfortable before, during, and after the surgery. Dr. Pittman excels in all of these areas, and I'm very thankful.
"Attentive, precise, and compassionate doctor!" My experience with Dr. Pittman and his staff has been exceptional in every respect. He immediately made me feel comfortable and answered all my many questions I had about breast implants. The Crisalix technology he uses allowed us to explore different size and shape options and gave me a true look at what I would look like post-op. My surgery goals were taken seriously by Dr. Pittman and he made himself available to me leading up to my surgery and after to discuss any questions or concerns.
I am 28 years old and recently got a breast lift with implant with Dr Pittman. I work in the aesthetic landscape and had several of my providers offer to do the procedure for next to nothing. After several consults and gathering information, I had my consult with Dr Pittman. I knew prior to my visit that I was likely to go with him, simply because of his outstanding resume and background. During the consult, he was the only provider that created a plan based off our conversation of what my goals were, and walked me through that plan step by step. As I predicted, he was my guy. His follow up post surgery was caring and professional. Upon seeing my results I was in tears. My biggest concern before the procedure was the scars left behind. They are next to nothing, even being so early on in the healing phase. My breasts are now, dare I say it, perfect. If I could give him and his staff a 6th star I would. He is worth every penny, and then some. From consult to post-op he was the definition of a class act surgeon. If you are exploring any breast procedure, do yourself a favor and schedule with him!
"Dr. Pittman is fantastic" Dr. Pittman is talented, personable, thorough, and caring. I knew I was in good hands the whole time. I never had to wait and getting an appointment was easy. He and his staff were attentive and professional. I LOVE the result. I couldn't have asked for more.
"A life changing experience" I was struggling with a previous breast augmentation done years ago. I was referred to Dr Pittman by my obgyn after all the regular screenings came back normal. Dr Pittman diagnosed me, offered me options and I opted for the surgery. The whole experience from start to finish was flawless, from the moment you enter his office, the staff they all excel in professionalism. Most important, for first time in my life I am thrilled and happy with the results. I never envisioned that my breast could look this beautiful. Thank you Dr Pittman!
"Dr. Pittman made what could be an uncomfortable and scary experience exciting" I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Pittman. He made what could have been a really uncomfortable experience exciting- so much so that I found myself looking forward to surgery because I was so excited for the results! He is kind, attentive, and really knows how he can provide you with the service that'll make you the most confident and happy. Thank you Dr. Pittman!!
"I have the breasts of my dreams thanks to the incredible work of Dr. Pittman!" Dr. Pittman and his team were nothing but professional and helpful from beginning to end! Considering how scary surgery can be, I was thankful the team constantly made me feel comfortable and supported. I could not have asked for more beautiful breasts! Originally I didn't know just how large I wanted to go and chose to trust the guidance of Dr. Pittman to do what was best for my body. And boy- the size is perfect! Thank you for making all of my boob dreams come true.
