Breast augmentation remains one of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure for women. When you are dissatisfied with the size, shape, angle or volume of your natural breasts, a breast augmentation is a procedure that can correct such issues. It has a high satisfaction rate as well as different types of breast implants you can choose depending on your body type and personal preferences.
A breast augmentation procedure is done on an outpatient basis. Twilight anesthesia is administered prior to the surgery instead of general anesthesia, allowing the patient to breathe on their own. Implants can be placed either over the muscle or under it depending on your preference. After your surgery, you are required to stay for a short time for observation before you can return home. It’s important to have an adult pick you up to bring you home while the anesthesia wears off.
Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation
There is a newer breast augmentation available that allows for faster recovery time. Known as rapid recovery breast augmentation, this allows you to have minimal downtime as well as less swelling, bruising, pain and medication after your surgery.
What is Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation?
Rapid recovery breast augmentation is exactly as it sounds. It is a type of breast augmentation surgery that only requires downtime of one or two days. It also leaves very little to no pain and requires no pain medications stronger than an over-the-counter option.
In order for rapid recovery breast augmentation to be done, the surgeon relies on a variety of newer techniques, specifically, those that are done in sports medicine and physical therapy. These procedures help to get injured athletes back to playing faster, which is why they were implemented in this type of cosmetic surgery. Additionally, the procedure uses anti-inflammatories and heat instead of ice. There is also usually no need for any special bras or bandages after a rapid recovery breast augmentation.
You also only get a minimal amount of time for anesthesia at under an hour, which ensures that your procedure is safe.
Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation vs. Regular Breast Augmentation
In addition to less pain, shorter recovery time and milder pain medication, there are more benefits rapid recovery breast augmentation has over regular breast augmentation.
Rapid recovery breast augmentation has fewer risks than its traditional counterpart. There is far less bruising and swelling, and any symptoms you do experience subside after around a week. Bleeding is also minimal, as are any side effects of painkillers.
There are also fewer complications associated with rapid recovery breast augmentation. You do not need any special bras or special supplies for your home during recovery. There aren’t even any stitches that need removing. You are free to perform your normal daily routine after a day and can even return to wearing your favorite underwire bras a few days after your procedure.
