Many women who decide to have a breast augmentation have done so because of small breast size, or the way the body changes over time. These changes are often due to childbirth or weight loss. There are many important decisions to make regarding a breast augmentation, all of which can be discussed during your initial consultation.
Quick Recovery Breast Augmentation
Enhance your chest size with little downtime. Dr. Whitlock specializes in a quick recovery breast augmentation technique which cuts surgery time in half, virtually eliminating patient bleeding and prolonged recovery.
The quick recovery method works by greatly reducing the amount of trauma to the soft tissue, eliminating swelling, bruising and pain, creating a better overall experience for the patient. In most cases the procedure eliminates the need for drain tubes and intense pain medications. Another upside: the majority of Dr. Whitlock’s patients are able to go out to dinner the same day as their surgery, and return to work within a couple of days.
Ideal candidates for quick recovery breast augmentation:
- Desire more fullness and symmetry
- Weight loss has affected the size and shape of breasts
- Breast shape and firmness has decreased due to pregnancy or age
Breast augmentation is a cosmetic procedure which increases or restores breast size using Ideal Implants, gel implants, saline implants, or in some cases fat transfer.
Silicone implants are gel-filled prostheses, known for producing softer, more natural looking results. Saline implants are filled with a saltwater solution and considered safer in the event of an implant rupture because the natural solution does not harm the body. Or choose the revolutionary Ideal Implant that combines the realistic look of silicone with the safety of saline. (Read more on Ideal Implants.)
Schedule a free consultation with Dr. Whitlock to discuss the desired outcome of your breast enhancement. From the measurements which were obtained during the exam, an implant type and size will be recommended. At this time, you will also be able to “try on” different sizes to determine the best option for you.
Dr. Whitlock is proud to offer affordable breast enhancement without compromising on quality or experience. A patient coordinator will review costs and payment options as part of your initial consultation.
What to expect…
You will likely be asleep, under general anesthesia, during the procedure. We place numbing medicine just before you awake so that you remain comfortable the rest of the day. You will be at the facility for three to four hours before being able to go home, so please make the necessary arrangements.
Although we give you a prescription for pain medication, most women have reported needing only one to four pills, if at all. Using the Quick Recovery technique, most of our patients have experienced much less pain than anticipated. In fact, if you feel up to it, we recommend getting out of the house the afternoon of the surgery to go eat or shop.
Although we recommend that you can expect to be off work three to four days, many women report feeling they would have been able to return to work within 24 to 48 hours.
