Breast Enhancement Surgery - Overnight Stay
Denver, Aurora, Lone Tree and Boulder, Colorado
Why do some surgeons offer an overnight stay?
Cosmetic surgery procedures have advanced in more ways than simply being able to offer highly developed techniques and natural looking breast implants. If you had a cosmetic surgery procedure 15 years ago, more than likely you were required to spend the night in an observation unit. Today, cosmetic surgery procedures have become so prevalent that surgeons have gained more knowledge of how to help patients recover more comfortably and more quickly than ever before, eliminating an overnight stay.
Dr. Broadway at bod:evolve takes every step necessary to insure you are safe and comfortable before and after your procedure. At your Pre Op appointment you will be given many guidelines and instructions to help aid in your recovery making it as easy and pleasant as possible. If you are compliant with your pre and post operative care instructions your recovery might seem easier than you ever imagined. Following are additional steps Dr. Broadway takes to ensure a smoother procedure and shortened recovery.
Dr. Broadway has implemented a Hydration Drink as an option for his surgical patients. For patients who have not yet incorporated hydration drink into their lifestyle, Dr. Broadway will give you a fruit based nutritional drink, and a hydration beverage. This product will play a key role in muscle, tissue and cell preparation before surgery, and well as assist with your recovery and healing process after surgery.
Your surgery will be performed at Renewal Surgery Center, a licensed surgical facility that is dedicated to cosmetic surgery procedures. By spring of 2009, this ambulatory surgery center will be fully accredited by AAAHC (Accreditation Association for Ambulatory Health Centers) which measures the quality and performance of a surgical center against nationally recognized standards.
The highly trained plastic surgery staff is handpicked by Dr. Broadway and Dr. Millard and will provide patients a high level of focused, specialized support and care.
Dr. Broadway patients can be at ease knowing their anesthesia is being administered by safe and highly experienced personnel. Most of the surgeries performed by Dr. Broadway will be under IV sedation. This means you are technically asleep during surgery and won’t remember much, but you are not relying on a ventilator to breathe for you. This is a much safer form of anesthesia because it can be classified as a “lighter” form of sedation without the use of a endotracheal tube.
Dr. Broadway has over 10 years of experience performing breast augmentation with local IV sedation technique. His technique has evolved to include a tumescent anesthesia. We have seen that this has reduced the need for sedation during the procedures, allows for a faster recovery and has diminished the post operative discomfort. Most patients in the recovery area are virtually pain free. Many patients have been seen visiting family on their cell phones or texting friends while still in the recovery area.
After your surgery you will typically remain in the Renewal Surgery Center observation unit for one hour. Most patients usually feel that they are ready to go home within this amount of time. Once your vitals are stable and you feel confident to leave with your post operative care giver, Dr. Broadway and the surgical staff will transport you to your car.
Dr. Broadway will not perform extensive hours of surgery on patients. He feels this is too traumatic to your body and only makes for a longer recovery. The procedures that he will perform are surgeries that your body can tolerate safely, and allow for you to return to the comfort of your home. We will teach you and a family member’s the care that you will need after surgery to aid in a more pleasant recovery.
