Flash Recovery Breast Augmentation®
The term Flash Recovery Breast Augmentation® has been coined by Beverly Hills plastic surgeon Dr. Ashkan Ghavami and refers to a technique that is aimed to reduce the recovery time and discomfort from breast augmentation surgery. This concept is based on the innovative quick recovery techniques and philosophy first published by Dr. John Tebbetts. Through Dr. Tebbetts’ research, it has been shown that breast augmentation recovery can be reduced to less than 24 hours if certain principles are followed in the right candidate! Breast enhancement surgery is typically performed by creating room (a breast implant pocket) for the implant under the muscle. This can be accomplished either by blunt dissection methods that can involve prying and tearing the tissues with invasive instruments, or even with the surgeon’s fingers. Creating space for the implant does not have to involve these methods, which can cause more than necessary injury to the surrounding muscle and tissue in the chest, and may increase the patient’s healing time and pain after the operation.
Dr. Ghavami’s goals in breast augmentation are to create a sub-muscular pocket with as little trauma possible. Flash Recovery Breast Augmentation® involves ONLY the use of cautery (heat) dissection (no blunt dissection) to cut sub-muscular tissue and make room for the implant with as little bleeding as possible. It is theorized that blood leaking out of vessels, especially on the ribs, may be responsible for the discomfort after any surgery. Systematic cautery (with “prospective hemostasis” or getting vessels cauterized before they have a chance to rupture and leak into the tissues) aims to cause minimal damage to surrounding tissue (muscle and ribs) while creating the breast pocket. This may in-turn reduce the pain and recovery time after breast augmentation.
Another critical aspect of Dr. Ghavami’s belief is that the implant volume or size should not be excessively large for the patient’s tissues. Implant size is determined by a precise dimensional analysis of the breast tissue, measurements, and amount of stretch potential. This also tends to create a natural breast appearance that is not “over-sized” or artificial looking. Dr. Ghavami’s tasteful aesthetic judgment ensures that breast augmentation surgery patients come out of the procedure with breasts that look natural and proportional to the body. This breast dimension and soft tissue measuring system is used to dictate what the most appropriate size and shape of implant should be for each patient. Each patient’s results are individualized to complement unique features and body shape.
Quick Recovery with Flash Recovery Breast Augmentation®
When patients undergo Flash Recovery Breast Augmentation® with Dr. Ghavami at his state-of-the-art Beverly Hills facility, most are able to carry out many everyday activities within 24 hours of the operation. With the support of a surgical bra, patients are encouraged to do things such as brush their hair, take a shower, or go out for dinner the same night as their surgery.
In summation, the Flash Recovery Breast Augmentation® procedure allows women to achieve the breast size and shape they desire, with the goal of reducing short term (no blunt dissection, prospective hemostasis) and long-term trauma (not over-stretching the breast tissue with an implant that is too big for the patient) to the chest which in turn may reduce the overall recovery process. Dr. Ghavami’s experience in performing breast augmentation can provide results that are comprehensively beneficial in terms of appearance, patient confidence, and reduced recovery time.
Numerous television and news programs (The Doctors, NBC, Telemundo, The Ricki Lake Show) have recorded the surgery and recovery process of different patients who have experienced the benefits of the above philosophies and techniques in breast augmentation.
