24 Hour Recovery for Breast Enhancement Surgery

by

Recovery time is one of the biggest factors people consider when it comes to Breast Augmentation surgery. Nobody wants to feel completely out of commission for days on end post-procedure. If you have been considering a Breast Augmentation but have been turned off by the thought of a long recovery, hold tight and learn more about the Fast-Trak Recovery Program at the Bengtson Center for Aesthetics and Plastic Surgery.

The average recovery time after receiving breast implants is approximately one week.Fortunately, Dr. Brad Bengtson offers a unique program with a 24 hour recovery time that has completely revolutionized the patient recovery process for Breast Augmentation surgery.

It all starts with delivering a number of processes to the patient that include proper education, adequate expectations, the right implant size selection, meticulous pocket and preparation for the implant as well as necessary exercises and stretches. The pocket is the area that is created under the muscles in which the implant is placed. Incisions through the armpit can cause more trauma, causing delayed healing after surgery. When the incision is done underneath the breast, using Dr. Bengtson’s Fast-Trak approach you have a quicker recovery.

It is important to still take care of yourself and your body just like you would after any sort of medical procedure. Rest is essential, so in order to fully recover in a shorter amount of time, it is necessary to take a long nap once you get home. Be sure to avoid any strenuous activities that same day.However, you are strongly encouraged to grab dinner with friends, or your special someone that night!

By following these specific principles, over 90% of patients will recover within 24-48 hours after their Breast Augmentation.

Would you like to recover from your Breast Augmentation in 24-48 hours with minimal discomfort? 1-3 weeks of breast pain and long recoveries are a thing of the past. With bloodless, a-traumatic surgery our patients are out to dinner, movies or soccer games the night of their procedure and back to routine activities of daily living immediately.
