What Is the Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation Technique

​​​​​​Breast augmentation can be a life-changing procedure for many women. Most do it to boost their self-image, body image, and self-confidence.
With the Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation Technique, in addition to patients enjoying their new breast, they also benefit from reduced recovery times. They also experience less pain, less bleeding, and more comfort than ever before. But before any procedure, plastic surgeons, like Board Certified Plastic Surgeon Dr. Mata, have to analyze the patient’s breast tissue. This helps to determine the right implant size for a natural appearance.

Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation Technique

Plastic surgeons like Dr. Mata use the Rapid Recovery Technique to help patients bounce back faster post-surgery. The critical parts about this procedure are the tumescent (numbing) solution injected in the breast before any cutting is done and the cauterized technique used to dissect and create the implant pocket. If done right, the patient experiences minimal pain, less bleeding, and less inflammation. This leads to faster recovery.
This technique allows Dr. Mata to use a gentler anesthesia (conscious sedation) eliminating some of the side effects experienced with general anesthesia post-operative. Patients are also required to move around almost immediately after surgery. They should do so to reduce stiffness, swelling, and the potential of blood clots. Gone are the days when patients had to sit still post-op.
Dr. Mata will also prescribe pain medication for patients and encourage them to take it as instructed. But like any other cosmetic surgery, recovery time varies with the patient. Some patients recover faster than others. Failure to follow instructions can also prolong the recovery process.
Accomplished Plastic Surgeons like Board Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Mata, strive to find ways of making surgeries less stressful for their patients. They seek to ensure minimal disruption of their normal lives by ensuring a quick recovery. By using this precise and less invasive approach they are able to reduce post-op discomfort and recovery time.

The Benefits of Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation Technique

There are several benefits to undergoing this procedure, including:

  • With Rapid Recovery, patients can resume some of their normal activities hours after surgery. However, they must be careful not to strain their pectoralis muscles.
  • Patients get the opportunity to enjoy the benefits that come with their new bodies sooner rather than later.
  • The technique takes less than an hour to perform if there are no complications. This means a patient does not need to set aside a whole day just to undergo the procedure.
  • This technique leads to less pain, less swelling, and less bleeding compared to other procedures. This also means that patients get to recover much faster compared to other procedures.
  • The body goes through less trauma compared to other augmentation techniques.
