Breast Augmentation Rapid Recovery System

It seems they have a new procedure that keeps pain, healing and downtime to a minimum. Basically they told me I would have the procedure on Friday and then be able to go back to work on Monday as long as my job didn't require any heavy lifting. I asked if I could pick up my 2 year old and they said probably not the 1st few days, but after that I should be able to pick him up though I might not be able to hold him for extended periods. I still haven't gone in for the consultation...it is on Monday.

From my doc's website:
Recently we have been using a rapid recovery system. Over 90% of our patients exhibit no bruising and their pain is controlled by non-narcotic analgesics. No bandages, drains, or special bras are used. Patients typically can shower, eat regular food, and leave the house the day of surgery. You may lift objects, drive, and resume normal activities within 48 hours of surgery even with implants beneath the muscle. All the sutures are buried underneath the skin and do not require removal.

Has anyone had this type of procedure and is it true

I know next to nothing about augmentation, but I was wondering how your consult went....keep us updated when you finally go. I assume anything that helps heal more rapidly would be a welcome relief after surgery!

this is what i found on the web:
"A dose of steroids is given at the start of surgery and a bioelectric device, known as Actipatch, is placed over each breast before the patient leaves the operating room. This device, which is worn for 48 hours after surgery, helps control pain and swelling. I then start my breast augmentation patients on range of motion arm exercises beginning the night of surgery as well as 800mg of Ibuprofen twice a day also. The goal is to get patients off narcotics in 24 hours, if possible, and be able to get out of the house for dinner or shopping the next day. While not every patient achieves this exact timeline for a 'rapid recovery', this aggressive approach helps make a breast augmentation easier to go through than ever before."

Here is a link about the Actipatch: http://www.makemeheal.com/mmh/product/rhinoplasty/healingdevices/actipatch/testimonies.vm?procid=10&catid=1383&subcatid=1384

interesting, but i'm not sold. i'm curious to see what your doc says.

I'm not sure how it works, but it sounds good. I will find out everything on Monday. I need to figure out what size I want??? Everyone says go larger but I don't want to look too fake I'm an A now and thinking I want to be a full B, but one cup size just doesn't seem enough.

I would go to a small c cup if it didn't look to unnatural. Are you going under the muscle? If so there will be a lot of pain no matter what they tell you.

If you are wearing a size 25 jean right now, a C cup probably will look unnatural... Your choice though, entirely.

^^Agree. You have to go for what is suitable for your frame. I'm a VERY VERY teeny-tiny A minus right now, and would LOVE to upgrade to a full B. That'd be my dream come true.

^Agree.... Char, a nice full B would probably look very natural on you. Anything more than a handful is a waste!

Good luck with your consultation. I would LOVE to have this done, but I don't think I could ever have surgery again....elective that is. I just don't handle it well.

Even my new BF told me that he thought that a C would be too much on my 5'4" 115lb frame. I'm going to see what the doctor recommends too, but I'm leaning toward B.

I'm not sure I will be going under muscle or not, that is up to the doctor....i'll do either.

If you have loose skin/sagging from when you breast fed, you will have to go to a larger cup size to fill the area up, otherwise you will have a saggy implant(unless you got a lift + implant). When my mom got hers she was an A and wanted a small C, but had to get a full D to fill out the excess skin. She didn't want to go through the extra pain/cost of a lift as well. She got hers over the muscle and she recovered in just a few days.

That should be up to you. Have you researched this doctor at all yet? If not please do.

Lucky you! I wish I had big boobies. It really does not bother me until it is time for me to wear a swimsuit. I feel so boyish compared to women with larger chests.

I think a Large B, Small C cup would be a good choice for you. I believe anything larger might look fake since you are are so tiny.

I think a small C cup wouldn't necessarily look wierd. My natural boobs are a 32C when I am a size 25.

Definitely go under the muscle! It's not up to him!!

I don't know about this rapid recovery but mine was a breeze & I had it done 8 years ago. I was back to normal in 3 days. I didn't have pain or bruising at all. I went to a D cup but I'm a lot bigger than you.

BabyJ is right about the already saggy boobs & having to go larger. I got mine done after 2 kids (which I breastfed) & so I had a lot of saggy skin. Mine were never small though....around a C.

My friend just got hers done & she was small like you. Hers look so god awful fake....like balls....because she went to big. Her skin just had to stretch so much that it looks really bad.

Char, what is your current band size? you look like a 32 to me (from posts Ive seen)...I think a 32C would look nice on you! What profile were you looking into? I love that "teardrop" profile but I wonder if it looks good after the surgery and settling...Good luck!

Yes but it is very hard to make large implants look natural on someone who is very tiny. I did not mean that a C cup was necessarily disproportionate - boobs come in all shapes and sizes, but with surgery, it usually looks best to stay close to the natural cup size IMO.

Riv, are you saying I'm fat? j/k.

You're probably right. Even when I'm really skinny, I have a curvy shape, it's just bony-curvy.

Right now I wear a 32A barely...maybe AA but I can rarely find those. I was a 34A before breastfeeding and went up to a C. I don't have any loose skin on my breast fortuantely...they are perky just lacking fullness. I do have a little loose skin just under my nipple but even if I just went up to a B I know that would go away.

I don't think I will do a tear drop shape since I think my breast already are low on my chest. I will either do round high or medium profile since my frame isn't very wide.

I do think under the muscle would look better on me since I'm not starting with much to begin with.

Yes, I have searched the doctor he is a board certified plastic surgeon not cosmetic surgeon and is well known in the area

I don't think you would look bad in a C cup at all! I have three friends whom have had breast surgery and each went with a C cup - all are small frame as well - size 0/2. They do not look horrible or too big - be sure to put the implant in your bra to judge what each size will look like - I'm sure thats what your doctor will do.
