Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation-What Does This Mean?

Breast augmentation can make a woman feel more confident and sexier. Patients considering this cosmetic procedure typically have several questions and in particular about the recovery. How much time will I need to be off work? How long will I need help? How long does it take to recover overall? These are typical questions from patients considering breast implants. The most popular cosmetic procedure done in the United States, breast augmentation has taken great strides to help patients with an easier surgical procedure as well as a quicker recovery.

Have you recently considered breast augmentation surgery with implants and are wondering about the recovery process? Board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Jules Walters of New Orleans, is a breast augmentation specialist and uses the Rapid Recovery technique to help patients bounce back faster and more effectively. He offers this innovative technique for his patients and wants to share some information about how it works and what it can do for you.

Facts about recovery...

When discussing breast augmentation, one thing to consider is the recovery. Along with swelling, some discomfort and possible bruising, breast augmentation requires post-op care. Your surgical care and what kind of transformation you are considering also play a role in the recovery process. Finding a qualified, experienced plastic surgeon, like Dr. Walters, is a key component. The surgical technique utilized can be a deciding factor on a patient’s recovery. Another factor is the size and location of the implant. Placing the implant under the chest muscle, instead of on top, as well as a larger implant size are all elements that can cause more discomfort post-surgery. So how does Rapid Recovery work and how has it changed the breast augmentation recovery process?

The Rapid Recovery difference...

Rapid Recovery is an innovative new way to offer New Orleans patients an easier recovery. You can resume daily activities within 24-48 hours like showering or even going out to dinner the same night! Following the Rapid Recovery post-op instructions and taking necessary medications as prescribed will allow patients to get back to their normal life quicker. So how does it work?

The trifecta of Rapid Recovery....

The 3 main factors that make Rapid Recovery different are surgical technique, gentler anesthesia, and changes in post-op care.

  • With new medical advancements, a gentler type of anesthesia is used with Rapid Recovery. While still keeping patients comfortable during surgery, it also makes them more comfortable post-opt. With less side effects, it allows patients to have an easier transition with recovery by eliminating nausea, grogginess, and discomfort that most patients experience with traditional general anesthesia. In fact, sometimes the anesthesia can linger around in your body for hours after surgery, which means you are not able to begin simple recovery steps.
  • The surgical approach with Rapid Recovery is more precise and gentler. With a qualified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Walters, precise surgical techniques are applied with a less invasive approach to the breast tissues or surrounding area (ribs) allowing the body to have less postoperative discomfort with swelling or inflammation. New surgical techniques, with this cosmetic surgery, are allowing plastic surgeons to take a more precise approach on how the implants are inserted which in turn allows the body to heal quicker.
  • The Rapid Recovery approach for post-op care is to get moving! Gone are the days requiring a patient to lay immobile post-surgery. Rapid Recovery gets patients moving with low-impact stretches or exercises even in the recovery room. The main idea with this change in post-op care is that it decreases stiffness and the lack of mobility in patients if these type of movements are incorporated immediately after breast augmentation surgery. You won’t be hitting the gym right away but you won’t be just recovering in bed either with this new approach.

The true benefit of Rapid Recovery…

Breast augmentation procedures typically were associated with prolonged recovery times but with Rapid Recovery that has changed this whole process for patients. A quicker, easier recovery with Rapid Recovery will allow patients in New Orleans to enjoy their new figure sooner rather than later. But like with any cosmetic surgery or procedure, it varies by patient. Every patient reacts differently to surgery. Also, failure to follow the post-op instructions with not staying on top of the stretches or pain medications will alter the Rapid Recovery process. Finding a board-certified plastic surgeon, like Dr. Walters, plus following the Rapid Recovery post-op instructions are 2 steps in the right direction to enhance your breast augmentation journey!
