From the first breast augmentation with silicone gel implants in 1962, breast augmentation patients experienced a recovery and return to full normal activities interval of 10 days to several weeks, depending on the techniques and processes used by surgeons.
For four decades, the norm for patients was prolonged recovery with restrictive bandaging, special bras, drain tubes, pain pumps, nerve blocks, narcotic pain medications, and other burdensome adjuncts.
Today a faster surgery in less than an hour and a leaner anesthesia allow a short-term hospitalization and return home within 24 hours with a slightly containment belt to keep for a few days only.
This approach optimizes, develops and improves the normal steps required by procedure and gets from each the maximum benefit in terms of reduction of the timing and risk of complications as well as a more rapid convalescence:
- Interview with Patient: to let him understand the dynamics involved, their roles and responsibilities so that the procedure has certain outcome.
- Using a standardized measurement system: using objective and quantitative measurements based on a scientific analysis of the initial conditions that allow to define the optimal amount of fill to obtain the ideal result.
- Observance of anesthesia protocols before and after: these protocols are designed to minimize the use of anesthetics and narcotics.
- Implementation of techniques and tools to ensure a perfect haemostasis: these allow the surgeon to create the pocket for the implant of the prosthesis by preventing more than 95% of bleeding compared to other techniques. This requires the use of electrocautery forceps to create the pocket, avoiding the shedding of blood into surrounding tissues that can cause inflammation and capsular contracture.
- Implementation of techniques and tools to reduce the trauma of the tissues and swelling: these instruments, such as the front light, optimize the field of view minimizing the invasion of the surrounding tissues thus reducing trauma.

The use of a light source mounted on the front allows us a perfect view of the surgical field through the small access areolar or inframammary fold.
The use of atraumatic retraction tools and a electrocautery forceps allow us to set up the prosthetic pocket minimizing the risks of bleeding and trauma to the soft tissue that will host the breast implant.
A standardized and objective measurement system on initial breast parameters allows us to choose the best prosthesis in terms of volume and projection according to your wishes and also on the basis of a practical simulation of the desired result.
The intra- and post-operative analgesia will enable a more comfortable course. By following these protocols in the clinic, and after returning home the patient is not suffering. In addition, the patient will not stand annoying appendages and postoperative tools such as drains.
