What Is The Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation Technique?

Q: Dr. Eppley,I was wondering If your technique for breast augmentation after care is the “rapid recovery” technique. Or is it the standard which generally I’ve read takes about a week to two to feel better? 

A: Rapid recovery breast augmentation is my technique of immediate exercise beginning the night of surgery and regular dosing of Ibuprofen anti-inflammatory medication. It does get patients recovering faster after breast implant surgery, which is largely nothing more than a pulled pectoralis muscle with a small tear at the bottom on both sides. Like all muscular injuries, early range of motion and physical therapy is the key to quick return of full function and faster resolution of discomfort. I do find that it provides rapid recovery compared to doing nothing other than pain medication.
