Rapid Recovery Technique


Recommended Posts

Hi, 

I’m in the process of deciding which doctor/doctors to have my consults with pre breast augmentation. With two young children and a job, recovery time is really important to me. 
 

I found a clinic offering “rapid recovery technique” claiming you can be recovered in 24 hours. It sounds too good to be true. Is it? The doctors listed on the site are cosmetic surgeons not plastic surgeons which concerns me. They also charge substantially more than what I’ve been quoted elsewhere at $12,999 for standard implants. This is with dr topachian at the Melbourne clinic.

anyone have any experience with the rapid recovery technique? Why wouldn’t all surgeons use this if it were available and effective? 
 

How should I choose the doctors to have a consult with? There are so many. 
 

thanks for your help!

Hey @Rose2019 A BA is major surgery - 24 hour recovery is nonsense. You have answered your own question - if it were genuine, then all surgeons would recommend it.

I think you should investigate what 'recovered' means. 

Often rapid recovery or flash recovery for breast augmentation refers to things like being able to lift your arms above your head, begin movements and exercises sooner, lack of drains and full mobility etc
You may be still recovering from the effects of anaesthesia at 24 hours post op. I think a good indication fo 'recovered' is when you are cleared to drive a car.

 

best of luck

Hi @Rose2019 i would have to agree with the above comments, although i myself did have a pretty easy recovery i had full use of my arms right after surgery but had restrictions on lifting anything heavey , over reaching and driving , i had little to no pain and came out of the anesthetic very easily but some people are not so lucky,  while i didn't technically have rapid recovery my first 2-3 weeks were fairly  easy but i did take that time to rest and recover as like mentioned above it is major surgery.  You also mention you have little ones, you will have lifting restrictions even with a supposedly rapid recovery so picking up your little ones will be very hard for the first week at least so i reccomend you have someone who can help you for that first week.

I had a fairly easy recovery with my augmentation. My twin sister had a harder time and I think it was probably because I had already been somewhat expanded from breastfeeding and pregnancy so I did not have any stretching or tightness in my chest that a lot of women complain about.

As for the rapid recovery technique outline by Dr Tebbets, this does not refer to things like being able to lift a significant weight such as picking up your kids, or going back to the gym. You will be asked to take it easy for some time so that you dont get your heart rate too high and risk bleeding from the incisions etc before they are fully healed. You also wont be able to do things like swimming etc. It really refers to pain and movement post op. 

I think the best advice I can give you is to really allow yourself enough time to recover properly and have some time to take it easy. You really want to let your body heal and not rush things. After all, revision surgery is far more inconvenient than a few extra days of taking it easy
