As discussed in our previous “Part 2: Preparing For Your Breast Augmentation Surgery” we talked about the many things to consider when having your procedure. In the final installment of this series, we are going to cover some things to remember after your surgery while in the recovery phase. It is important to make sure you have a home recovery area set up prior to your surgery that will allow you ample time to begin the healing process. Here are some things to consider having ready:
Pain medication that is prescribed by your doctor to control any discomfort
Clean gauze for covering the location of the incision sites
Any creams or ointments that may be prescribed your doctor
Loose clothing that is unrestrictive such as button down blouses or shirts
Establish an area that you will be seated or lying down for at least 24-48 hours
Set up a phone and/or computer within reach of your established seating area
Have plenty of things to keep you occupied such as movies, books, magazines
After your surgery you will have a sense of feeling tired with most patients able to move around a bit more after 24-48 hours. This time is a crucial time as it will set the tone for your healing process going forward. Your surgeon will likely give you a surgical bra to wear after you remove the gauze dressing from your incision areas. Your stitches will generally come out within a week to 10 days after your procedure. This recovery period will continue until any bruising and swelling begins to disappear usually within 3-5 weeks. Make sure to communicate any issues that may arise if you may experience any at all. If you need to return to your job, you should be able to within a few days depending on the level of physical demands you deal with at work.
The most important thing to remember during your entire breast augmentation process is being open with communication and questions or concerns with your doctor. Dr. Shutte’s goal for each of his patients is to make sure that they have as smooth and comfortable of an experience as possible and encourages you to be open from the time you begin to inquire about this procedure through the recovery phase. We are confident that you will be very happy with the results and the amount of self-confidence you will gain will definitely change your life for better.

Being as prepared as you can be for breast augmentation surgery is an important step in the process towards a new you. Making the decision to enhance your breasts is an important choice that we discussed in “Part 1: Deciding If Breast Augmentation Is Right For You.” Now that you have decided to move forward with enhancing your beauty, there are some things to consider when preparing for your procedure at Front Range Plastic Surgery in Loveland.
Initially Dr. Shutte will discuss with you in your initial consultation what precautions you will need to take before your surgery. We will make sure you are aware of what foods you can eat prior to your surgery as well as post-surgery. Your overall diet will be evaluated and a plan will be devised for you that will include foods that you want to avoid, like foods that contain salicylate. Any medications or vitamins that you take will also be covered to make sure that you don’t have anything that will influence the recovery period after the procedure. Some of these medications and vitamins include aspirin, vitamin E, and ibuprofen as they are the most common. If you are a smoker, we may instruct you quit the use of any products that contain nicotine in any form. This is very important because it is a detrimental factor in your overall healing process. A mammogram may also be recommended to before your procedure to ensure your overall breast health as well as a baseline for future comparison.
Lastly you will discuss with Dr. Shutte the type of anesthesia that will be administered, where the procedure will take place, and your obligations as a patient. It is vital that you are prepared as best as you can be for your procedure so that you can allow your body the best recovery possible. We will visit your recovery and steps in our final post in the series “Part 3: Recovering From Your Breast Augmentation Surgery.”
If you have always considered how you can enhance your appearance cosmetically, than breast augmentation is a procedure that can give you the confidence that you have lacked for some time now. Whether you have endured a mastectomy due to your battle with breast cancer or have desired to have a larger, fuller contoured breast that compliments your body, there are some things to consider when deciding to have breast augmentation surgery. Here are a few of those reasons women consider when electing to go through with this procedure:
You want to achieve a better symmetry when your breasts are reasonably inordinate in overall size and shape
You are wanting to improve the shape of your breasts that have a sagging or drooping look
Overall enhancement of your body’s contour if you feel like your breast size is too small
If you need a foundation of a breast contour if one has been removed from a recent mastectomy
Overall improvement of the appearance of your breast or creation of the appearance of a breast that is lost or deformed from a recent traumatic event, genetics, or congenital abnormalities.
A pregnancy or recent weight loss has caused you to lose the original volume in your breasts
Each patient has their own reasons for wanting to have breast augmentation surgery and these should be discussed openly with your doctor. We want to know what you like/dislike about your breasts and will consult with you the best option in enhancing your appearance. At Front Range Plastic Surgery in our Loveland clinic, our ultimate goal is to provide a solution that is one you are comfortable with and provides you with the results you are looking for.
We will discuss in part 2 of this series how you can prepare yourself for this procedure and ways you can allow yourself to recover and come back better than before.
Our patients come to us with questions about ways they can restore the shape of their bodies to the form they had when they were younger. They also come to us for guidance with enhancing their body’s contour after having children and losing breast size due to breast feeding. There are many reasons why our patients consider breast augmentation at our Loveland office with Dr. Warren Schutte:
· Restore breast volume after weight loss
· Enhance the overall contour of their body because they feel like their breast size it too small
· Providing a foundation for a breast contour if their breast has been removed to treat breast cancer
· Achieving a better symmetry when breasts are moderately disproportionate in size
· Overall improvement of the shape of the breasts that are showing signs of sagging or have lost firmness
· Creation of appearance of breast that is missing or disfigured due to uncontrollable factors such as heredity, trauma, or any other abnormality
· A long term solution for achieving that ideal figure
Having breast augmentation can be such an uplifting experience that our patients feel a sense of satisfaction and regain the self-confidence to step back into that swimsuit. Feeling great about how you look is imperative in revitalizing your life.

Are you tired of skin discoloration, uneven skin tone, and fine lines and wrinkles? Try CO2 Laser Resurfacing! Laser resurfacing is performed using a beam of laser energy which vaporizes the upper layers of damaged skin at specific and controlled levels of penetration. In many cases, facial wrinkles form in localized areas, such as near the eyes or around the mouth. The laser can be precisely controlled so that only these specific areas are targeted.
It’s also important to consider the length of recovery when choosing among the skin-resurfacing alternatives. In general, the more aggressive the resurfacing procedure is, the more prolonged the recovery is likely to be. “Light” resurfacing procedures, such as superficial chemical peels or superficial laser resurfacing, offer shorter recovery times. However, these lighter procedures may need to be repeated multiple times to achieve results comparable to those achieved with more aggressive techniques.
