24-Hour Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation: An Overview
Breast augmentation surgery is one of the most commonly performed cosmetic surgeries in America. For a variety of personal reasons, many women want to have breast enhancement to create a larger, fuller, and shapelier bust line. One of the most exciting newer developments in the field of breast augmentation is the 24-hour rapid recovery mini-incision procedure. Read on for more information about this cutting-edge surgery.
- What is rapid recovery breast augmentation? The latest advances in breast augmentation surgery have resulted in improved incision techniques that reduce recovery time. The procedure uses smaller incisions and a smaller pocket in which to place the implant. These techniques help reduce pain, swelling, bruising and scarring, resulting in a minimal recovery process.
- What are the benefits of rapid recovery breast augmentation? Standard incision breast augmentation surgery typically involves considerable pain and downtime. Patients are required to wear bandages or special bras post-surgery and are prohibited from returning to work for up to a week. They also are restricted from using their arms, including most of their typical daily activities. Twenty-four-hour rapid recovery, on the other hand, allows patients to return to work within 24 hours of the procedure. They can drive, walk, and use their arms just as usual. Patients also do not need to wear any bandages post-surgery.
- Who is a candidate for breast augmentation? Due to its numerous advantages, most patients want to be considered candidates for rapid recovery breast augmentation. However, this technique is not for everyone. At the consultation, the surgeon will discuss factors such as goals for the surgery, specifics of changes desired, and body type to determine if rapid recovery is the best approach.
- What can patients expect from the recovery process? After the surgery, most patients will not require any bed rest at all. Any minor discomfort patients experience will be minimal and can easily be relieved with over-the-counter pain medication. The only limitation that the surgeon may recommend is that patients abstain from vigorous exercise until the area has completed the healing process.
