Well yesterday we had talked about how Dr. Leonard Grossman has developed a stand-up liposuction procedure. You are under local anesthesia and can see when surgery is being performed on you. In other words, lower risk and somewhat shorter recovery time.
Now a Dallas plastic surgeon Dr. William P. Adams is doing something similar for breast augmentation. He has come up with a 24-Hour Recovery Breast Augmentation procedure. In other words, in one day, you can go back to your daily routine. Dr. Adams has implemented several specific techniques that minimize tissue trauma while minimizing the length of the recuperation period — a major advantage for his patients who undergo this cosmetic surgery.
In his procedure, there are no drains, straps, special bras, tapes or bandages. “The expected norm for my breast augmentation patients is that they will be out to dinner the night of the procedure, and back to normal activities within 24 hours after surgery,” Dr. Adams says.
In fact, over 95% of his patients return to the regular tasks of daily living within the one day time frame. Patients are actually encouraged to use their hands and arms normally, including showering and styling their hair and raising their arms over their head on the same day as the procedure.
But does it mean that plastic surgery is risk free. No, but with procedures like this, there is lower risk.
