To find out how your breast augmentation recovery time can be minimized with little or even no pain, call Renaissance Plastic Surgery at (317) 565-1009 today.
Traditional Breast Augmentation Recovery
The traditional approach to breast augmentation required patients to take one week off from normal activities, such as work and child-care, and then gradually resume their lives. However, this lost window of time was significant, and the necessity of "down time" caused many women to postpone or even reject breast augmentation because their lives were too busy.
The reasons for this prolonged “down time” were because breast augmentation patients were wrapped in tight bandages and told to limit arm movement, which caused muscle spasm and pain around the breast implant. The muscle pain led to the need for narcotic pain medicines after breast augmentation, which caused drowsiness, fatigue, and frequent nausea. This vicious cycle of muscle spasm, pain and narcotic use often lasted up to one week.
Breast Augmentation 24-Hour Recovery
Dr. Fata’s “Breast Augmentation 24 Hour Recovery Program” is based on the principle that most pain after breast augmentation is caused by muscle swelling and spasm. If muscle swelling and spasm can be controlled, pain is minimal and can be controlled with non-narcotic pain medicines. You will feel more like yourself, and you will be able to resume your normal activities as soon as 24 hours after your breast augmentation surgery.
In the “Breast Augmentation 24 hour Recovery Program”, restrictive dressings are eliminated in favor of a comfortable bra, and muscle relaxants are used during and after your breast augmentation. You will begin range of motion exercises to stretch and soften your muscles and the soft tissues of your breast before you leave the Carmel, Indiana surgery center. This protocol will reduce muscle swelling, spasm and pain.
The only restrictions in the “Breast Augmentation 24 Hour Recovery Program” are to avoid heavy lifting and strenuous exercise for two weeks. Otherwise, you can do anything that you feel strong enough to do. Dr. Fata’s patients often go out to dinner or go shopping within hours of their procedure with little or no pain. Most women return to work within one or two days.
In Dr. Fata’s experience, the “Breast Augmentation 24 Hour Recovery Program” has resulted in a quick and comfortable recovery without narcotics in 90% of his breast augmentation patients. For the occasional patient who does not get adequate pain relief, stronger pain medications are available.
Follow the simple steps in our program, and you may be "back to normal" in as little as 24 hours, often with no pain! Why would you do it any other way?
