As a board-certified plastic surgeon, I specialize in quick recovery breast augmentation. I began to use these techniques in 2001 and I have seen a dramatic improvement in my patient’s recovery. The quick recovery method allows patients to raise their hands over their heads in the recovery room and to return to 90% of their daily normal activity in one to two days. I see all patients within 24 hours after surgery and most come in with smiles on their faces. My mission has always been to provide comprehensive and compassionate care for my patients and this breast augmentation method reduces recovery time with minimal pain and a quick return to 90% of normal activity.
I have been performing breast augmentation for over 25 years and the quick recovery breast augmentation method is only possible with expert, careful surgery and specialized instruments. There is less trauma, and therefore dramatically less pain and recovery time. Most patients are back to work within a few days.
When women come in for a consult with me, most have heard horror stories of friends with pain for one, two, or even three weeks, and unable to raise their arms to do such things as comb their hair or wash their face. Therefore, it is extremely gratifying to hear patients tell me that they had almost no pain and that they are back to work, caring for their children, or going about their normal activity.
Quick Recovery Breast Augmentation
Although you may experience discomfort or sensitivity in the days after surgery, the rapid recovery approach relies on you doing daily stretches and exercises designed to reduce the degree of discomfort. In the past, traditional approaches to breast augmentation required patients to wait up to several weeks before feeling normal again. Now, with the benefit of Dr. Paul LoVerme’s quick recovery approach to breast augmentation, our patients are typically returning to daily life and enjoying their new look in a matter of days.
The rapid recovery breast augmentation method begins at the time of the first consultation. After meeting with our coordinator, you will view a short video about breast augmentation surgery. Dr. LoVerme will review your medical history and do a full breast examination. Then, advances with 3-dimensional (3-D) photography, combined with revolutionary new software, will allow Dr. LoVerme to help you preview what you will look like as the result of your breast augmentation. The process starts with a VECTRA® 3-D session, which produces a 3-dimensional photograph of you. Then using Sculptor software, Dr. LoVerme is able to simulate the expected results of a variety of aesthetic procedures, including breast augmentation and breast lift. It creates a starting point for your aesthetic consultation. The 3-dimensional photograph is processed and displays a virtual model on the computer monitor. It can be rotated on the screen and viewed from almost any angle. The software then allows Dr. LoVerme to apply simulation tools that change the size, shape, and position of your breasts to achieve the desired appearance. He is also able to insert specific breast implants to give a realistic idea of what the final result will be. You will be able to try on implants in a bra for a simulation of size and shape.
Following a detailed discussion with you and the physical examination, trying on implants, and 2-D and 3-D photography with breast implant simulation, Dr. LoVerme will develop a customized surgical plan based on your desires and anatomy. All of your questions will be answered, including those about implant type, shape, size, position, and incision placement.
TouchMD at Home
Following your consultation, we will upload the breast augmentation video, your 2-D and 3-D photos, before-and-after patient photographs, and your own computer simulations, to a secure portal on TouchMD, which you may review in the privacy of your home.
Breast augmentation is typically performed at our AAAASF-accredited office-based Surgical Suite. The procedure usually requires one to two hours and is done on an outpatient basis. Breast augmentation is most commonly performed under local anesthesia with intravenous conscious sedation (IVCS). You are usually awake and ready to leave the facility within an hour after your surgery is completed.
Because of Dr. LoVerme’s commitment to the latest proven plastic surgical technologies, he uses the Keller Funnel™ for all of his breast augmentation patients. Dr. LoVerme is Keller Funnel™ certified, providing our patients with an innovative method of implant delivery. The main benefits of using the Keller Funnel™ include reduced incision lengths, less visible scarring, added options for incision placement, minimized risk for implant damage, and decreased incidents of post-operative complications such as capsular contracture. With the Keller Funnel™, Dr. LoVerme is able to perform silicone breast augmentation using a smaller incision similar in size to those used for saline implants. Remember, this surgery is dependent on the expertise of the surgeon you select, and the time spent before the surgery correlates with your results.
Placement of Breast Implants
Breast implants can be placed either over or under the chest muscle. Dr. LoVerme will discuss which option will be better for your particular situation. He will also go over the best incision location and incision type in order to minimize the appearance of post-operative scars.
Quick Recovery Method
A comprehensive pre-operative consultation, 3-D imaging, expert, careful, no-touch technique surgery, use of the Keller Funnel™, unique post-operative exercises, and smaller incisions allows Dr. LoVerme to achieve his goal for you:
- To make every outcome positive.
- Every result expected.
- Every experience pleasurable and comfortable.
