How improved breast implant design & our Quick Recovery Breast Augmentation program help get you back on your feet faster than ever
Advancements in breast implant technology
Silicone gel implants have experienced a number of improvements in recent years. The latest implants are filled with a cohesive silicone gel, providing a very natural look and feel—in addition to increased safety and longevity. Patients who are interested in saline implants also have more options than ever, including the new IDEAL IMPLANT. This unique implant design offers the natural appearance of silicone with the peace of mind of saline.
During your consultation, you’ll have the opportunity to learn all about your breast implant options, discuss the pros and cons of different types of implants, and even try some on for size! Our board certified plastic surgeons have many years of experience helping patients pick the right type and size of implants for achieving beautiful, natural-looking results.
Quick Recovery Breast Augmentation in Washington, DC
Here at Center for Plastic Surgery, we are dedicated to providing every patient with as quick and comfortable a recovery as possible—and we have spent years perfecting pre- and post-operative care.
For breast augmentation patients, we follow a specific Quick Recovery protocol to reduce downtime and increase comfort.
- Preoperative pain medication is administered, just prior to anesthesia, to cut down on the need for post-op narcotics and improve recovery.
- Anesthesia is always administered by a board certified anesthesiologist who uses shorter-acting anesthetics to reduce the “anesthesia hangover” and post-operative nausea.
- Toward the end of your procedure, we inject long-acting local anesthetics and perform a nerve block, in addition to providing pain medication and muscle relaxers. With this protocol, our patients are off prescription pain medications sooner and report reduced pain and general discomfort after surgery.
This program has led to a more comfortable recovery with patients being able to shower, walk, and lightly stretch just a day after surgery. Although heavy weightlifting and running need to wait a few weeks, patients can drive and return to work much more quickly than before.
