Shower, Walk and Out to Dinner the Day of Breast Augmentation
- Posted on: Apr 15 2020
Breast augmentation surgery remains one of the most popular aesthetic procedures in the world. It allows me to completely transform not just your torso, but your entire body. However, some women are reluctant to get breast implants, even though they really want them, because they’re worried about the downtime. With our unique One Day Recovery Breast Augmentation, you will not be in bed for 2 weeks. In fact, you’ll be back to most of your daily activities within 24 hours. And this is not some grandiose sales statement. I actually have the science to prove it. So, here’s what you can really expect after a One Day Recovery Breast Augmentation.
Go Out to Dinner the Night of Breast Augmentation Surgery
With the One Day Recovery Breast Augmentation, you will reach your arms up over your head before you even leave the surgery facility. I want you moving your arms because it gets the blood flowing. This will further reduce your:
- post-operative pain
- risk of complications
When you get home, you will take a couple of Advil and have a short nap. Then, you’ll get up and get in the shower. Yes, you read that correctly. I want you taking a warm shower. You can even wash your hair. Patients are always amazed by how much better they feel after this very simple task. After your shower, you might want to go for a walk. I don’t want you sprinting, but a leisurely stroll around the neighborhood is totally fine. Again, it’s about keeping your muscles moving. What I don’t want is you lying in bed, drugged out on narcotic pain medications. With One Day Recovery Breast Augmentation, you won’t need anything stronger than Advil which means that the night of surgery, you are going to feel good enough to go out to dinner.
Less Post-Operative Restrictions
The day after surgery, you can:
- lift up your toddler
- drive carpool
- put away groceries
- go to work
Basically, within 24 hours of getting your new breast implants, you can be back to your daily routine. I do, however, want you to wait 2 weeks before returning to strenuous aerobic exercise and 3 weeks before returning to heavy lifting at the gym. But honestly, that’s it. How is this possible? It all comes down to my credo of handling the tissues gently.
Gentle Tissue Handling = Less Swelling
Surgery inflicts trauma onto the skin and tissues both by cutting them and, in the case of breast surgery, by retracting or pulling them apart. The body’s response to any kind of trauma or “injury” is swelling and bruising. This is what causes pain. So, I have made it my mission to handle the tissues in all of my surgical procedures as gently as possible. It translates to significantly less post-operative pain for my patients, and, therefore, a much faster recovery.
With the One Day Recovery Breast Augmentation, in particular, I use a specific surgical technique that produces basically no bleeding. And I combine this with retractors of my own design that allow me to elevate your breast tissues with much less pulling. This 1-2 punch is what enables my breast augmentation patients to get back to their routine within 24 hours of surgery.
We all lead busy lives these days. Many of my breast augmentation patients are young mothers and/or business women who don’t have the time for downtime. With the One Day Recovery Breast Augmentation, you won’t need any.
