At Beachwood Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa and Westlake Plastic Surgery and Medical Spa, the practice of Dr. Steven Goldman, we are proud to offer breast augmentation procedures that minimize postoperative pain and expedite recovery for our patients. Meticulous planning, precise and gentle surgical technique, and immediate postoperative movement comprise the critical elements of Dr. Goldman’s rapid recovery technique.
To make certain your augmentation aligns with your goals for a particular feel and aesthetic, we discuss several important choices with you during a thorough consultation, including:
In addition to holding impressive credentials and having extensive experience, Dr. Goldman cares deeply for his patients and strives to provide the results they seek. To him, this isn’t just about getting a new look – it’s about increased confidence and a better overall quality of life. To find out more about our breast augmentations check out this page.
Dr. Goldman has perfected the rapid recovery technique for breast augmentation by focusing on three key elements:
- Precise and thorough pre-surgical planning, starting with a thorough consultation in which we clarify your goals and analyze your physical characteristics.
- Precise, gentle, and efficient surgical technique is utilized.
- Our patients are encouraged to engage in early motion immediately after surgery, including arm stretching exercises and walking. Some (not most) even go out to dinner or shopping the night of surgery or to work the next day.
Various terms are used to refer to rapid recovery techniques, including quick recovery, weekend augmentation, flash recovery breast augmentation, and pain-free augmentation. All these terms refer to the same basic techniques.
Why Rapid Recovery?
Without a doubt, the health and safety of our patients is the top priority. Dr. Goldman’s rapid recovery technique optimizes safety by minimizing postoperative narcotic use and by minimizing the risk of blood clots, pneumonia and other complications that result from inactivity. We also recognize how busy our patients are and want to offer an experience that demands as little time off work (usually less than a week) and off of exercise (two weeks) as possible.
The risk of serious complication of surgery, like bleeding, infection, or anesthetic problems, is extremely low in Dr. Goldman’s practice. He is Board Certified in both Plastic Surgery and Otolaryngology (Ear, Nose, and Throat) Surgery, having completed two full residencies. The Beachwood Surgery Center, our private facility, is a state of the art center accredited by the AAAASF.
Breast augmentation patients should be aware that breast implants are not lifetime devices, more surgery over a patient’s lifetime is expected to address issues like leak or shifting of the implants. More detailed information about complications is available on our additional breast augmentation pages.
As with any surgical procedure, pain levels can vary considerably between patients even for the same procedure. For Dr. Goldman’s rapid recovery breast augmentation, most patients take narcotic pain medication intermittently for about 3 days; many patients only use Tylenol. Almost all patients go back to work in less than a week; many in 3-4 days. These patients still have pain, but it is manageable. Even with the rapid recovery technique, some patient will occasionally feel very uncomfortable for about three days. Patients can start working out again 2 weeks after surgery. Very few of our patients have postoperative bruising.
