How Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation Can Benefit You

How Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation Can Benefit You

Breast augmentation surgery in San Francisco is the most popular plastic surgery procedure in the U.S., which is no surprise given the natural results it can produce. According to recent data released by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, breast augmentation has one of the highest degrees of patient satisfaction out of any cosmetic surgery.

One of the only downsides to breast augmentation, however, is that many patients end up having a lengthy recovery period with a lot of required downtime. They aren’t able to return to work or school for an extended period. It can be difficult to care for children and pets. And most importantly, patients feel stuck at home and uncomfortable for weeks on end.

But an advancement of traditional breast augmentation has changed all that. Rapid recovery breast augmentation differs from traditional breast augmentation surgery in that it allows patients to bounce back far more quickly. Let’s take a look at how this recovery technique works and how you can find out if you’re a good candidate.


Rapid Recovery Breast AugmentationRapid recovery breast augmentation is a breast augmentation method that aims to create little to no pain and require only a very short downtime period after surgery.

Typically, breast augmentation patients undergo their procedure with the knowledge that a lengthy period of downtime will be required after surgery — normally one to two weeks. During this period, they are encouraged to rest, relax, and avoid upper arm movement and exertion. They are told that there will be lots of swelling and bruising and that narcotic pain medication will likely need to be taken to relieve discomfort — sometimes, for an extended period.

Naturally, many women are okay with this bargain as they truly desire the results of their procedure. But what if there was a better way?

Dr. Sieber was able to employ a unique surgical technique for breast augmentation that reduces all of the negative side effects listed above. Instead of the breast tissue being swollen, painful, and severely bruised for one or more weeks, with rapid recovery breast augmentation (sometimes called flash recovery breast augmentation), patients experience few if any of these extreme side effects. They are often able to return to work within days, and some are even shopping and going out for lunch with friends the very next day after surgery.

If this sounds like a breast augmentation procedure you’d be interested in, read on — you may be an ideal candidate!


Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation Vs ConventionalWhen it comes to rapid recovery breast augmentation vs conventional breast augmentation, the “rapid recovery” method is not just one single technique. It’s several different techniques used in tandem to produce optimal results.

This involves a specific operative and post-operative protocol. For instance, we focus on precise placement of breast implants plus an exact aftercare routine. The system works synergistically to help patients recover from surgery much more quickly.

In particular, the rapid recovery technique allows for patients to be able to perform basic daily activities within 24 hours after surgery! This is far different than traditional breast augmentation recovery instructions. 

However, it must be noted that in order to achieve this quick recovery, patients absolutely must be sure to follow San Francisco plastic surgeon Dr. Sieber’s specific post-op instructions.



If you’re interested in learning more about rapid recovery breast augmentation, we’d love to help you find out if you’re a good candidate. Women who are unhappy with the size or shape of their breasts, are overall healthy, and understand the importance of closely following the post-operative instructions can often benefit from this program and make good candidates.

Dr. Sieber is attentive, responsive, and well trained. I had seen him for Botox and filler and he had done both without any pain or bruising and more importantly the results were fabulous. He has met with me on time at each appointment. He communicates what to expect, made sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure, checked on my healing every day post procedure. He couldn’t be more delightful not more talented. I had seen other plastic surgeons for in office treatments over the past decade and Dr. Sieber is at the top of the list in terms of delivering the desired outcome and high quality care.*
