Our "Rapid Recovery" Approach
Patients from Missouri and Southern Illinois seeking plastic surgery visit the board-certified plastic surgeons at St. Louis Cosmetic Surgery for their "rapid recovery" techniques that reduce downtime and speed healing. This typically includes a variety of practices that help to minimize tissue damage, bleeding, and bruising in order to provide a more comfortable experience. Rapid recovery is possible thanks to several techniques:
Minimal Tissue Dissection
The fundamental principle behind the rapid recovery approach is to respect the tissues and avoid blunt tissue dissection techniques (which are usually quicker and easier to perform). By using very gentle, focused tissue releases, our surgeons can reduce pain, swelling, and recovery time. Our power-assisted liposuction technique uses a small vibrating cannula to reduce bruising and avoid unnecessary tissue disruption.
Minimizing trauma to the tissue is the main factor in rapid recovery. Some of our surgeons also offer a pain pump after surgery to help further minimize discomfort. The pain pump contains local anesthetic that is released into the treatment area for 4 to 5 days. This helps to numb any postoperative pain, reduce nausea, and greatly improve patient comfort.
Our three full-time patient care coordinators meet with every patient to thoroughly explain the recovery process. Patients are provided with detailed, easy to follow pre- and postoperative instructions to ensure optimal results. Before or after surgery, our patient coordinators are available to answer any questions you may have.
