24 Hour Recovery Breast Augmentation

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 

Who is an ideal candidate for 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation? 

  • The ideal candidate to undergo 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation is anyone wanting to minimize downtime while maximizing their aesthetic result. Rapid Recovery patients undergoing 24/7 Breast Augmentation will also be able to avoid taking post-operative narcotics and thereby avoid the nausea, vomiting and constipation, let alone fears of addiction. 
  • 24/7 Rapid Recovery patients will be up and out of the house the day after surgery; shopping, dining out. Taking walks… already enjoying their new feminine confidence. 

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

  • Dr. Partington has formulated a set of seven steps to 24-hour recovery. Having worked with professional athletes such as football players and boxers, as well as with many in the fitness modeling arena, Dr. Partington has learned the secrets of elite athletes and how they minimize downtime from injury or illness. He has adopted cardinal principles from the philosophy of sports medicine and has created a Seven Step Program appropriate for all of his surgical patients. He has received hundreds of photos from his patients who are “out and about”, “faking it till they make it” within 24 hours of their life changing surgery, and all without the need of narcotics!
