Minimal Downtime with Breast Augmentation

So what is the recovery like for breast augmentation?  In Austin, most of my patients that have breast augmentation surgery on a Thursday find themselves ready to be back to work by Monday or Tuesday. The recovery is actually quite quick and fairly unremarkable.  I use the Keller Funnel™ to minimize trauma to the breast, which reduces swelling and minimizes bruising.  Actually, my patients rarely have bruising after this procedure.  I close the incision with dissolving sutures and a protective skin glue that allow you to shower the same day of the surgery. I am a firm believer that my patients should get back to the gym as soon as they feel ready to do so.  I ask just a few things—no pull ups, no push ups, no bench press for 6 weeks—otherwise…Go For It!

Here are the top five reasons why we feel we offer exceptional care with regard to your breast procedure:

1. I am an ABPS Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon.

2. Consultation time is just over one hour so that we can discuss all the options that you have with this procedure.

3. I use the Keller Funnel™ to minimize implant damage & incision length.

4. We perform in-office breast sizing so that you can choose the implant size you desire.

5. All surgeries are performed at Seton SW Hospital for patient safety with a Board-Certified Anesthesiologist.
