Patients have a number of misconceptions when it comes to breast augmentation surgery. One of the biggest is that it requires two weeks or more to recover. With our unique 24 hour recovery breast augmentation, it is entirely possible to have surgery in the morning and resume your normal activities starting that afternoon. Furthermore, all of this can be achieved without the use of narcotics. With a 24 hour breast augmentation, you can get the breasts that you’ve always wanted and still drive carpool the next day. It’s really that simple.
Board-Certified Plastic Surgeon, Dr. Mark Deuber, is adamant about delivering the highest quality result for his Dallas area and beyond patients. The most over-looked element of this is the recovery. Dr. Deuber utilizes a different surgical technique than traditional breast augmentation surgeons that results in significantly less bleeding and trauma to the tissues so that you recover faster, reduce your risk of post-operative complications and don’t need to call your mother-in-law to help with the kids.
What is 24 Hour Recovery Breast Augmentation?
A quick-recovery breast augmentation is no more difficult than traditional breast augmentation surgery. However, it does require:
- Meticulous planning
- Intense thought
- An exquisite eye for balance & proportion
- Mentoring process
The latter, combined with the fact that it is human nature to stick with the status quo, is the reason why not all plastic surgeons offer their patients this cutting-edge procedure.
The main surgical difference between a 24 hour recovery breast augmentation and a traditional breast augmentation is that Dr. Deuber creates the pocket for your breast implant using precise electro-cautery dissection. This technique allows him to cut and coagulate at the same time which minimizes blood loss and reduces inflammation. Less bleeding means less post operative bruising and swelling and, therefore, less pain. This is why patients who undergo our 24 hour recovery breast augmentation are able to take a shower the afternoon of their surgery, and go out to dinner that night.
Benefits of 24 Hour Recovery Breast Augmentation with Dr. Deuber in Dallas
Dr. Deuber invested time learning the 24 hour breast augmentation procedure because it delivers a significantly better recovery experience for his patients. As someone who started his career on Wall Street, he understands the benefits of the efficiency model. Recovery is a cost. With a traditional breast augmentation that may require 2 weeks or more of downtime, patients need to hire help and take time off work, both of which cost time and money. With our unique breast augmentation, you can be back to your daily routine the night of surgery.
In addition, Dr. Deuber’s life long passion for design means that he has developed a fantastic eye which permeates every aspect of his life from the beautiful clothes he helps his wife, Cary, find, to the home that they designed together, to his exemplary aesthetic results. He is also an avid problem solver. This combination allows him to know exactly what each individual patient needs in order to look her best without ever looking “done”. Dr. Deuber’s work is always classic so it also stands the test of time.
Ideal Candidate for 24 Hour Breast Augmentation
The ideal candidate for a 24 hour breast augmentation is any woman in good overall health, who is within 10 lbs. of a maintainable goal weight and who is unhappy with the look, size and shape of her breasts.
While some women are born with breasts that are too small, many lose breast volume due to normal lifetime events such as:
- Weight gain/loss
Age and hormones can also play their part. For many, the skin and tissues of the breast may stretch to the point where the breasts sag. In general, a breast implant alone is not enough to correct moderate to severe sagging without adding more weight to a skin envelope that is already stretched. For these patients, Dr. Deuber will typically recommend a breast augmentation with a mastopexy or breast lift. 24 hour recovery breast augmentation cost is going to depend on the type of implant you use as well as whether or not a breast lift is necessary to achieve your desired result. All of this will be discussed with you in detail during your initial consultation.
Breast Augmentation Consultation
Just as our 24 hour recovery breast augmentation is unique so is every patient. What worked for your friend or even your sister may not be the right choice for you. This is why it is so important to schedule an in-person exam. During your meeting, Dr. Deuber will listen closely to your goals and desires in terms of breast shape and size. Together, the two of you will review photos of breasts that you like. He will then take detailed, precise measurements to determine the area of empty space in your breasts. Your body gives him the starting point for choosing your exact implant. This, along with your goals, allows him to plan your operation before you ever walk into the operating room.
In general, Dr. Deuber uses a smooth, round, silicone gel breast implant. In certain circumstances, a patient may need saline, but most find that silicone feels more natural. As the most studied medical device in history, silicone gel breast implants are safe and have a lower rupture rate than saline breast implants.
24 Hour Recovery Breast Augmentation Procedure
A huge component of the 24 hour recovery breast augmentation procedure is that Dr. Deuber maps out every detail of your procedure before he ever steps foot in the operating room. This meticulous planning translates to an:
- Improved patient experience
- Lower risk of complications
- Better result
- Faster recovery
- Less post operative pain or discomfort
Dr. Deuber performs most of his breast augmentation procedures under general anesthesia at Lemmon Avenue Surgery Center, his on-site, state-certified and fully accredited day surgery center in Dallas. After making an incision beneath your breast in the inframammary fold, he uses a Dual Plane technique to place the implant partially behind your pectoralis muscle. This allows for a more natural looking outcome and a less painful recovery.
As discussed, the defining surgical difference with the 24 hour breast augmentation is that Dr. Deuber will use the electro-cautery technique so that all the blood vessels are cauterized prior to cutting. This results in virtually no bleeding, minimal swelling and significantly less post operative pain. He will then close your incisions with absorbable sutures and steri-strips which will need to stay in place for about 10 days.
24 Hour Breast Augmentation Recovery
After surgery, you will be sent home with a “Recipe for Recovery”. These detailed instructions begin with a 2 hour nap, followed by a warm shower. You will then perform a set of non-strenuous exercises that include the top half of a jumping jack to help prevent stiffness, and take 800 milligrams of ibuprofen. There is no need for narcotics with a 24 hour recovery breast augmentation. That night, you can choose to go out to dinner, help your kids with their homework and/or generally return to your normal routine.
Dr. Deuber does ask his breast augmentation patients to avoid strenuous cardio for 2 weeks, and strenuous weight-lifting over 35 lbs. for 3 weeks. However, it is perfectly fine to pick up your toddler, carry grocery bags to the car or lift a carry-on. Immediately after surgery, you may lose some feeling in your breasts. This is a normal by-product of swelling and should dissipate with time. Furthermore, the top half or upper pole of your breasts may appear too full while the lower half may feel tight and stiff. Again, this is just part of the healing process. In general, it will take anywhere from 3-6 months for your implants to fully settle into position, but you will notice an improvement in your body contour immediately. And with the 24 hour recovery breast augmentation, you don’t have to wait two weeks to enjoy the new you.
