When considering breast augmentation, women are often concerned about how long recovery will take. In these busy times, most women need to be able to get back to their careers and families as soon as possible. Fortunately, because of recent refinements in technique, I am now able to offer one day recovery breast augmentation to help my Los Angeles patients return to their activities quickly and comfortably.
Breast enhancement surgery has been performed for decades and techniques continue to improve. With meticulous surgery, state-of-the-art technology and extensive experience, rapid recovery breast augmentation is possible. Many factors are involved in producing beautiful results, and I can help you understand just what to expect.
I plan one day recovery breast augmentation carefully. It begins with the critical step of selecting the right implant to match each woman's body type. Then, during the procedure, I use special equipment and techniques to minimize trauma. With a gentle, precise surgical approach, patients need less time under anesthesia and fewer post-op pain medications. The result: more rapid recovery from breast augmentation than has been possible in the past.
I create implant pockets delicately, using special instruments that minimize bleeding. This approach also reduces swelling after surgery and eliminates the need for drains. I place implants carefully in the breast pockets and close the incisions precisely. These operations typically take less than one hour.
Many women are good candidates for one day recovery breast augmentation. Exceptions may be patients needing revision surgery, women who are interested in very large breast implants, and patients seeking a breast lift along with augmentation.
If you've read about traditional breast augmentation recovery, you'll be happy to learn about the ease and convenience of one day recovery breast augmentation. After surgery, our team will encourage you to raise and use your arms normally, even before you leave the surgical center. You'll need very little, if any, post-op prescription medication. Most patients find they can work, shop, cook, go out with friends and otherwise enjoy normal activities the day after their procedure.
We will advise you to avoid increases in blood pressure after surgery. This means you will need a little more time before resuming athletic activities and experiencing stressful situations.
The risks involved in one day recovery breast augmentation are no greater than for traditional breast augmentation. In fact, the one day recovery breast augmentation can be safer.
