Whether patients come locally from Riverside, San Bernardino, Rancho Cucamonga, Upland, Chino Hills, Corona, or Temecula, or other areas of Southern California, there are many reasons why the Rapid Recovery Breast Enhancement program at Imagine Plastic Surgery has become so popular.
After nearly 30 years of performing thousands of breast augmentations, Dr. Hardesty has developed a unique technique and methodology incorporating state of the art surgery with the latest advances in pain management that can often result in returning to light tasks the very next day! We call this our unique “no pain- no pain” approach to Breast Enhancement.
It all begins with strategic preoperative surgical planning, precise breast measurements, accurate selection of the size, type and location of implant placement, (see breast augmentation section for more details), and the ultimate breast appearance patients desire.
The morning of surgery, we place a prophylactic anti -nausea patch on patients to facilitate post-operative comfort. In addition, just prior to surgery you will receive a dose of anti-swelling and anti-inflammatory medication that will speed up your recovery.
During the surgery, minimal incisions are made. Our gentle, precise technique is coupled with an intra-operative injection of long acting local anesthesia in the pain nerves surrounding the breast tissue. In addition, based upon patient choice, we often insert a small, (size of pencil lead), tubing that is hooked up to a non-narcotic “pain pump.” This delivers local anesthesia constantly to the pain nerves of the breast. Our sophisticated “pain pump” is designed to release a constant and precise amount of pain relieving local non-narcotic anesthesia as needed for three days, thus allowing you to minimize or completely avoid oral narcotics. Our patients often return to light tasks the very next day because there is no need for mind altering narcotics.
Postoperatively, we recommend ice therapy, gentle massage, use of anti- inflammatory medication and vigilant follow-up with progressive stretching maneuvers. These additional steps provide additional improvement in recovery time and further assists in decreasing post-operative pain. Our patients continually express how pleased they are with our Rapid Recovery Breast Enhancement program.
