Rapid Breast Augmentation Recovery

Plastic Surgeon Serving Indianapolis, Indiana


Initial recovery from breast augmentation can take weeks. In some cases, work, social and/or family obligations have to be placed on hold for more than a month while the body recovers from breast enlargement.

Understanding that most women do not have the luxury of taking several days off following breast implant placement, Dr. Joseph Fata was one of the first Indianapolis plastic surgeons to offer the 24-Hour Breast Augmentation Recovery Program - a method that reduces pain and swelling, speeds the rate of healing, and helps women get on with their lives.

Recovery Without Dangerous and Addictive Narcotics

The 24-Hour Breast Augmentation Recovery Program seeks to control pain by reducing muscle spasms after surgery. This is accomplished with non-narcotic muscle relaxants that encourage tension to release, helping improve blood flow and reduce discomfort.

90% of our breast augmentation patients do not require narcotics during recovery.

In addition to non-narcotic medications, range of motion exercises will also be prescribed to begin stretching and loosening the muscles and tissue surrounding the implants. These exercises will be started while you are still in our care, immediately after your procedure. You will continue to perform them at home for a few days to help ensure continuous results.

With this program, there is no need to compress the breasts following augmentation. Removing restrictive compression garments helps increase comfort and allows for better range of motion, which is essential for the stretches that are part of the 24-Hour Breast Augmentation Recovery Program.

This rapid breast augmentation recovery program allows women to get back to “normal” in the shortest amount of time possible without the major restrictions that traditionally accompany breast implant placement. However, it will still be necessary that you avoid heavy lifting and demanding physical labor for two or more weeks. During your follow-up visits, which are included in the cost of your breast augmentation procedure, Dr. Fata will provide you with personalized information on when you can resume all of your normal activities.
