The 24-Hour Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation is exactly what it sounds like. We have protocols that reduce your downtime to a day or two at most.  You will have almost no pain and rarely will you need any medication stronger than Advil.

We are using new sports medicine and physical therapy techniques that are getting athletes back to the playing field fast and applying these techniques to your cosmetic surgery recovery process. We use anti-inflammatories and heat rather than ice and rarely do we need to have special bras, straps, or bandages. The time needed to come out of anesthesia is also minimized to less than an hour.  This helps to ensure your safety for your rapid recovery breast augmentation.

24-Hour Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation

Breast augmentation is a surgical procedure sought after by many women who desire larger breasts. Breast augmentation is a straightforward procedure with a high satisfaction rate. There are several different styles of implants available to suit your preference for feel and size. We also offer a 24-hour recovery breast augmentation for the right candidates. At your consultation, your expectations along with the risks of breast augmentation surgery will be discussed.

The Procedure

Breast implants can be placed over or under the chest muscle through a variety of different incision placements. The time estimated for your surgery will be determined after a physical exam by Dr. Partington at your consultation. You will be observed for a short period of time following your procedure and when cleared by Dr. Partington, released to go home with the adult caretaker you have chosen.
24-Hour Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation procedures are performed in our state-of-the-art, accredited surgical facility in our Kirkland clinic as outpatient procedures. We avoid general anesthesia, preferring to give ‘twilight sleep’ and leaving the patient with the ability to breathe on their own. Dr. Partington will carefully follow the plan he has set forth with you, using the safest surgical technique to get you through your surgery comfortably.

24-Hour Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation FAQ'S

How is the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation different from a traditional Breast Augmentation?

The 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation is radically different in both surgical technique and post-operative recovery plan. Imagine suddenly having the breasts of your dreams and celebrating them by going out to lunch the day after surgery, all without needing narcotics!

What is different about the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation surgical technique?

As a microsurgeon, Dr. Partington understands the importance of gentle handling of tissue. Gentle surgical technique combined with the “no-touch” technique of implant placement and spacing of the pectoral muscle allows for remarkably painless and rapid recovery.

What are the pros and cons of sub-glandular implants in the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation?

Pros:nEssentially painless recovery- no narcoticsCleavage control; no gaping space between breasts Often avoids the need for a breast lift vs under the muscle implants Avoids “animation deformity” the movement, twitching, and flexing of the breasts with arm movement and pectoralis contraction. Avoids “high riding” implants that may or may not “drop” into a natural position.Essentially, submuscular implants avoid most of the known problems of submuscular implants. nCons:nStatistically higher incidence of capsular contraction at 5 or 10 years when implants places in the sub-glandular vs submuscular position

What are the post-operative instructions for the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Augmentation?

Dr. Partington has formulated a set of seven steps to 24-hour recovery. Having worked with professional athletes such as football players and boxers, as well as with many in the fitness modeling arena, Dr. Partington has learned the secrets of elite athletes and how they minimize downtime from injury or illness. He has adopted cardinal principles from the philosophy of sports medicine and has created a Seven-Step Program appropriate for all of his surgical patients. He has received hundreds of photos from his patients who are “out and about”, “faking it till they make it” within 24 hours of their life-changing surgery, and all without the need of narcotics!

What is the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation No-Touch Technique?

The “no-touch” technique is designed to respect optimal sterility of the implant at all phases of the surgery. Our skin is a primary source of bacterial contamination to breast implant during surgery. Then after a thorough surgical prep of the skin bacteria can still work microscopically in our pores. The “no-touch” technique involves transferring the breast implants from their hermetically sealed containers into the surgical breast pockets without any contact with the patient's skin. This is aided with the use of Keller funnel and well-designed surgical incisions.

Does the 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation avoid damage to the muscle?

Yes! By placing these fifth-generation implants on top of the muscle (sub-glandular) instead of under the muscle(submuscular) we avoid cutting and stretching and permanently distorting the muscles' appearance and function.

Who is an ideal candidate for 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation?

The ideal candidate to undergo 24/7 Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation is anyone wanting to minimize downtime while maximizing their aesthetic result. Rapid Recovery patients undergoing 24/7 Breast Augmentation will also be able to avoid taking post-operative narcotics and thereby avoid nausea, vomiting, and constipation, let alone fears of addiction. 24/7 Rapid Recovery patients will be up and out of the house the day after surgery; shopping, dining out.

What to Expect After the 24-Hour Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation

Post-operative pain varies with implant placement (over or under the muscle) and is well controlled with oral pain medications or the placement of a pain pump. Recovery is usually 7 to 10 days for most. Some patients are able to return to work within a few days, while others prefer to take more time off. Dr. Partington also offers rapid recovery breast augmentation for patients limited to time. There are scars associated with breast augmentation and patients’ scars in different ways. For most patients, scars start out red and eventually fade into inconspicuous lines hidden in the natural folds of your body. The vast majority of patients feel that the eventually faded scars are a worthwhile trade-off for the improvement in their body shape and self-image.

My follow-up care with his nurse and him has been great. He and his staff really seem to care about their patients and you do not feel rushed or like you are just another person to see for the day and get out the door


"The 24-hour recovery was wonderful! Dr. Partington prescribed simple stretches and walking throughout the following days for healthy blood flow. The before and after process was so easy and I was right back to my routine in what seemed like no time! I have been so pleased with my experience with Dr. Partington and all of his staff!"
