The sun is out, and the weather is finally starting to warm up. If you’ve been thinking about breast augmentation surgery, now is a great time to get it scheduled to be able to enjoy your new look this summer.
How Long Does It Take to Get My Surgery Scheduled?
Before any breast augmentation surgery can be scheduled, you will need to have a consultation with Dr. Yates in Layton, UT. If you are traveling to Utah for your surgery from out of town, a virtual consultation may be arranged. Once you’ve had your consultation and have chosen the type of implant and augmentation size and shape you desire, your surgery can be scheduled. Every breast augmentation patient receives a thorough consultation consisting of listening to goals, implant sizing, and simulation with 3D imaging assuring the most precise implant selection possible.
How Quickly Will I Recover?
Our “rapid recovery” techniques are surgical and postoperative methods we use to help the patient recover as quickly as possible, such as early arm motion and precise pocket formation avoiding bleeding and tissue trauma. The first two weeks will be the most important time of your recovery, where you will not be allowed to lift anything. You’ll need to carefully follow instructions and take all of your prescribed antibiotics. Most patients are completely off any kind of narcotic pain relief after 24 hours. For six weeks, you will be required to wear a special support bra that we will provide. You won’t be able to lift heavy objects or return to the gym for 6 weeks. This means that if you get started soon, you’ll be able to show off your new body this summer. On our Facebook business page, other patients have discussed their recovery and experience after breast augmentation as well as other procedures.
A skilled and experienced plastic surgeon like Dr. Yates can discuss your specific breast augmentation goals with you during your consultation and develop a breast augmentation plan that you can feel comfortable and confident about.
