Rapid Recovery Breast Surgery

Serving Chesterfield, O'Fallon, St. Charles and Nearby Areas of St. Louis

St. Louis Rapid Recovery breast surgery is designed to allow a faster and more comfortable healing period for the patient. Missouri Breast Surgeon Dr. Richard L. Kofkoff has hundreds of satisfied patients who can attest to the effectiveness of this simple, but powerful, breast surgery technique. At our Missouri plastic surgery practice, we believe it is possible to minimize the discomfort our patients experience after a surgical procedure. The Rapid Recovery technique has been perfected by Dr. Kofkoff and our team in order to further enhance the care our patients receive during their experience with us.

The Rapid Recovery Technique

The Rapid Recovery breast surgery technique has enabled many of our patients to return to normal, non-strenuous activities in as little as 24 hours after their Missouri breast surgery. Our technique reduces, and may even eliminate, the need for strong pain medication after breast surgery. This is achieved without the use of costly and uncomfortable devices such as a pain pump.

What makes the Rapid Recovery technique so different is that it is a much gentler approach to
breast surgery. By taking a proactive approach and administering medications prior to your procedure, we can successfully decrease the amount of muscle soreness and discomfort you experience as a result of your surgery.

Your procedure is performed in a precise manner in order to minimize injury to the breast tissue.
The meticulous nature of this technique avoids excessive trauma and minimizes bleeding, inflammation and post-operative discomfort.

Through use of the St. Louis rapid recovery breast surgery technique, we have also been able to eliminate the need for some patients to wear a tight and uncomfortable surgical bra during recovery. This allows your implants to settle into their final and natural position much sooner. You are also encouraged to begin unrestricted movement of your arms immediately after surgery. This drastically reduces discomfort and stiffness and will help you return to normal activities much sooner.  Many patients find they can return to work or care of their children much sooner than they had expected.

High Praise from Our Patients

Our Rapid Recovery technique has received high praise from our many patients who have undergone the procedure. At Dr. Kofkoff's St. Louis, Missouri cosmetic surgery practice, we believe that you have waited long enough to have your breast surgery. Now, with the Rapid Recovery technique, you do not need to wait to enjoy the results.
