For a breast augmentation that does not involve a long recovery or surgical drains, an innovative surgical procedure performed by Dr. Kotis is a remarkable improvement. For patients seeking a less dramatic size increase, it can be far superior to traditional breast augmentation surgery. The procedure involves the following steps:
A precise dimensional analysis of the breast tissue and its stretch potential is performed as the first step in our rapid recovery procedure. The implant size is selected based upon your unique physiology for an extremely natural breast appearance,
The breast pocket (beneath the chest muscles) into which the implant is placed is created with a an innovative selective cautery technique that results in significantly faster healing. This surgical technique creates room to place the implant while limiting bleeding, without standard dissection techniques in which the muscle tissue is separated with a scalpel, or the surgeon’s finger separating tissue. In this new technique, the blood vessels are cauterized, causing less damage to the surrounding tissue, less trauma, and a faster recovery.
The implants are placed beneath the muscle for greater stability and a lower risk of complications. The surgical procedure requires less time, typically less than an hour.
Many women are unhappy with the appearance of their breasts but are not seeking an extreme increase in size. The benefits of the rapid recovery procedure include:
Patients return to their usual activities within 24 hours, rather than weeks.
Less trauma to the body with little pain.
No surgical drains to deal with.
No major medication is needed to manage pain – only Tylenol or Motrin.
You will be able to shower, wash your hair, and lift your arms above your head hours after surgery – rather than waiting days.
Specialized cauterization technique leads to less bleeding, less pain, greater comfort, and a fast recovery.
Not every person is a candidate for the rapid recovery augmentation technique. Women with tuberous breasts, constricted breasts, or who are in need for a breast lift due to excess sagging are not typically candidates. An ideal candidate for this less invasive, rapid recovery procedure are those who:
Are seeking a moderate increase in breast size, rather than extremely large breasts.
Are in good general health.
Are not in need of breast revision surgery but are having implants placed for the first time.
Some types of breast augmentation surgeries involve several weeks of recovery time. This procedure allows you to get back to your life – even the same evening. The use of the selective cauterization technique means the body suffers far less trauma, with less swelling, bruising, or other painful side effects. Are you a candidate?
