About Dr. Joseph Brown

Dr. Brown completed his undergraduate studies in biology at West Virginia University, where he graduated magna cum laude. He then attended Rutgers University New Jersey Medical School, where he graduated in the top ten percent of his medical school class. Throughout his undergraduate and medical school training, he was the recipient of more than ten scholarships and academic awards.

Dr. Brown completed a six-year integrated plastic surgery residency at Ohio State University, where he was trained by some of the most respected plastic surgeons in the world. There, he received extensive training in cutting edge techniques in aesthetic surgery of the face, neck, breast, body, and extremities. His experience with complex trauma, cancer, and breast reconstruction, as well as cleft lip and migraine surgery further enhances his ability to make decisions that aim to avoid complications and maximize safety for patients.  He had the privilege to serve as chief resident in his final two years, giving him the opportunity to further refine his judgment, surgical skill and aesthetic eye. He is certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

Having come from a family of teachers and construction workers, Dr. Brown believes in the importance of hard work, dedication, and communication. His mother’s battle with breast cancer gives him insight to the patient’s perspective, which may be lost in some doctor-patient relationships. Having seen both sides of the coin, Dr. Brown treats every patient as if they were his family.

I am beyond happy with my results! Dr. Brown is an incredible and extremely knowledgeable surgeon who truly takes the time to get to know you and what you want. I was so nervous about getting my surgery and Dr. Brown made me feel at ease and comfortable. Most importantly he understood exactly what I was asking for. From the moment I called I knew this was the right place because the staff are amazing as well. They are so caring and do a great job guiding you through every step of the journey. Overall I am extremely happy – I feel like a whole new me thanks to Dr. Brown and his incredible team.” – Google review from Amanda M. 

Breast Implant Options

Dr. Brown offers his patients a wide variety of breast augmentation procedures, as well as different types of implants, including the “gummy” breast implant which contains cohesive silicone gel, unstructured saline implants, and the structured  IDEAL IMPLANT. Each implant comes with a variety of textures, shapes, and sizes, as well as different methods of implant incision and placement to help you achieve the overall look and profile you’re looking for.

A typical consultation with Dr. Brown will involve a thorough history and physical examination to obtain breast and body measurements. This meeting will help determine the perfect size and style implants for you after a thorough discussion of your options. Dr. Brown and his staff will aid you in achieving your goals after setting realistic expectations safely. After you’ve discussed and decided how you’d like to move forward in your initial consultation, there will be a preoperative visit with Dr. Brown and his team. Here you will be given your necessary prescriptions and receive instructions on what to do the day before/the day of/the days after surgery. Dr. Brown will be directly involved in all aspects of your care throughout the process. He welcomes and addresses any questions or concerns you may have along the way.

Benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT

The IDEAL IMPLANT is a structured breast implant filled with a saline solution. Dr. Brown and his patients love this implant because it feels and looks natural but offers lasting peace of mind with the safety features it provides. One of the safety benefits of the IDEAL IMPLANT is that it has a lower risk of rupture and capsular contracture than other implants, like the gummy breast implant or other silicone gel breast implants on the market. In the small chance that it does rupture, the saline inside the IDEAL IMPLANT is harmlessly absorbed by the body.

A recent study showed that the IDEAL IMPLANT significantly outperforms silicone gel implants for primary augmentation at ten years due to both a lower risk of rupture and of capsular contracture. The study showed that the risk of implant rupture or deflation with IDEAL IMPLANT was 3.7% over ten years for primary augmentation, compared with silicone gel implants at 8.7-24.2%. In addition, IDEAL IMPLANT has a 6.6% risk of capsular contracture, compared with silicone gel implants at 12.1-18.9%. The IDEAL IMPLANT allows women to instantly detect deflation just by looking in the mirror, while silicone gel or gummy breast implants require regular MRI or ultrasound scans to detect rupture.  Technology has advanced, make sure your surgeon has too.

The IDEAL IMPLANT is offered exclusively through a select network of board-certified plastic surgeons committed to addressing women’s concerns, educating them on all of their breast augmentation and implant options, and staying up to date on implant technologies. Dr. Brown is an Ideal Implant Preferred Surgeon, which means he has more experience studying, working with, and implementing this implant than other surgeons. It also means that he can offer his patients this cutting edge technology with all of its benefits while other surgeons may not have access to it yet.
