You don’t have to put everything on the backburner when you recuperate for several weeks from your augmentation surgery anymore. With rapid recovery breast augmentation, it is a delight to find your surgery involves less bruising, swelling, medication, pain and downtime than ever before.
What is the Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation?
Rapid recovery breast augmentation is just what is says. We have protocols that reduce your downtime to a day or two at most. You will have almost no pain and rarely will you need any medication stronger than Advil. “How do we achieve a rapid recovery breast augmentation?” you may ask. We are using the new sports medicine or physical therapy techniques that are getting athletes back to the playing field fast and applying these techniques to your cosmetic surgery recovery. We use anti-inflammatories and heat rather than ice and rarely do we need to have special bras, straps or bandages.
Anesthesia time for your breast augmentation is also minimized to less than an hour. This helps to ensure your safety for your breast augmentation.
Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation vs. Regular Breast Augmentation
Less pain – Since the surgery is less painful, patients do not require any harsh pain killers, like Percocet. An anti-inflammatory medication is only necessary after surgery. This means you can avoid any associated side effects of pain killers and get back to your normal daily routine faster.
Less recovery period – With less pain, recovery is faster. Most patients can return to daily activities, avoiding strenuous exercise within a day of the surgery. Most even go back to work within a week or less.
Fewer associated risks – The inflammation associated with breast augmentation is significantly decreased with this procedure, so any bruising and swelling is minimal and subsides in about a week. Any risks of bleeding and side effects of pain killers are also reduced. At Partington Plastic Surgery, Dr. Partington utilizes the No-Touch technique for your breast implants to reduce risks of infections, incision size, as well as capsular contracture. Only a few professional breast implant surgeons in the country use this revolutionary technique that is becoming a fast gold-standard for breast augmentation surgery.
Fewer complications – You will find that the complete breast augmentation procedure is less complicated with the rapid recovery breast augmentation technique. There are no complex garments or bras, no surgical supplies required for at-home care, no stitches to take out, and no drains to take care of. You can shower the next day and wear your underwire bra within a few days after your surgery.

Breast augmentation is rarely covered by insurance as it is considered an elective surgery. Total cost for a breast augmentation is generally between $6000.00 and $8,000.00. This includes pre and post-op appointments, the surgical fee, facility fee, anesthesia fee and required post-surgical recovery garments. We understand that financing is a concern for many people and an important part of the decision making process. We offer several options for financing and will work with you on a financial plan that best suits your needs.

24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation FAQ’S
How is the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation different from a traditional Breast Augmentation?
The 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation is radically different in both surgical technique and post-operative recovery plan. Imagine suddenly having the breasts of your dreams and celebrating them by going out to lunch the day after surgery, all without needing narcotics!
What is different about the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation surgical technique?
As a microsurgeon, Dr. Partington understands the importance of gentle handling of tissue. Gentle surgical technique combined with the “no touch” technique of implant placement and spacing of the pectoral muscle allow for remarkably painless and rapid recovery.
What is the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation “No Touch Technique”?
The “no touch” technique is designed to respect optimal sterility of the implant at all phases of the surgery. Our skin is a primary source of bacterial contamination to breast implant during surgery. Then after a thorough surgical prep of the skin bacteria can still work microscopically in our pores. The “no touch” technique involves transferring the breast implants from their hermetically sealed containers into the surgical breast pockets without any contact with the patient’s skin. This is aided with use of Keller funnel and well-designed surgical incisions.
Does the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation avoid damage to the muscle?
Yes! By placing these fifth-generation implants on top of the muscle (sub glandular) instead of under the muscle(submuscular) we avoid cutting and stretching and permanently distorting the muscles appearance and function.
What are the pros and cons of sub glandular implants in the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation?
Essentially painless recovery- no narcotics
Cleavage control; no gaping space between breasts
Often avoids the need for a breast lift vs under the muscle implants
Avoids “animation deformity” the movement, twitching and flexing of the breasts with arm movement and pectoralis contraction.
Avoids “high riding” implants that may or may not “drop” into a natural position.
Essentially, submuscular implants avoid most of the known problems of submuscular implants.
Statistically higher incidence of capsular contraction at 5 or 10 years when implants places in the sub glandular vs submuscular position

The ideal candidate to undergo 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation is anyone wanting to minimize downtime while maximizing their aesthetic result.

What are the post-operative instructions for the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Augmentation?
