A Comprehensive, Personalized Approach
Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation
Recovery from breast augmentation typically takes approximately 1-2 weeks. Dr. Ringler’s Rapid Recovery Breast Augmentation reduces downtime and typically allows patients to return to normal activities a day or two following surgery. In order to achieve this goal, it is important to understand and follow a very specific post-operative recovery schedule. You should also plan to have someone with you for 24 hours following breast augmentation for safety and to help you achieve your goals for a rapid recovery.

“I picked Dr Ringler based on excellent reviews as well as his professionalism. Today, many surgeons are still quite biased towards silicone implants, so it was important for me to find a surgeon who genuinely supported the benefits of an ideal implant (my #1 choice). I also have a strong preference for the transaxillary incision, which Dr Ringler specializes in. :) Dr Ringler and his staff are GEMS! One day post op and I had already gone back to most normal activities, I only took Tylenol and Motrin the first 5 days, and nothing ever since. I am so in love with the work Dr Ringler did for me! It is 100% exactly what I asked for and I am SO grateful to have been able to work with Ringler and his amazing staff. The communication between myself and Dr Ringler’s staff was phenomenal the entire time. I worked closely with Lauren B (patient coordinator) who felt like a friend in my corner from day one and was generally such a sweetheart. Everyone, everyone, everyone along the way has been so kind and helpful in answering any questions and staying on top of everything (pre and post op) and I’m so thankful. Thank you for all you do!”
