I was back in the office last week and had the pleasure of seeing some lovely new patients. If women have really, truly researched breast augmentation (which most of our patients have…..I am SO lucky!), their questions are very well thought out and based on a strong foundation of knowledge. Inevitably, at least one or more of these educated ladies will ask me the same question……”If all of these 24 Hour Recovery surgical techniques and recovery rates are this good, why don’t other surgeons do it too?” Having been in this game from the beginning, I of course, have my beliefs as to why other surgeons won’t change their habits and improve patient experiences, recoveries and results, but then again, those are just my supositions and cannot be applied across the board to all surgeons.
Instead, I would rather focus on why Dr. Tebbetts is so dedicated to delivering such a dramatically different level of care in breast augmentation…..because I know this for a fact and live it and on top of that, it is all published in the scientific literature in plastic surgery!
What makes Dr. Tebbetts special and specialized in breast augmentation and breast implants, is
1. He is devoted to reducing your risk of ever needing a second
operation. That means advanced surgical techniques and good
decisions before surgery. Dr. Tebbetts is so proud of his published 3% reoperation rate!
2. He makes all surgical plans for you based on measurements of YOUR
breasts so that the result is perfect for you! Each woman has a
correct amount of fill that their breast requires, if you don’t use
their body to figure that out, how will you know? Stuffing your bra,
or dreaming of a cup size does not make for a good surgical plan.
3.and finally, we predictably return our pts to full normal activity
the day of surgery. No bras, straps, pain meds they are up and out
and moving, shopping but most importantly, by improving the surgery,
which in proves the breast augmentation recovery, we have a published 1.5% capsular
contracture rate! Immediate movement and normal activity is a very
important part of reducing your capsule rate, but you can’t move
without better surgical techniques!
4. He published and shared all of this information in our plastic surgery journals and scientifc platforms and has published books and produced DVD’s to share this information with other surgeons. If patients do better, we all do better! Currently, there is no other surgeon that has published as much information about primary breast augmentation as John B. Tebbetts, M.D.
When you devote your career to bettering patient experiences and then you get to see them experience the 24 Hour Recovery experience, the gratification comes with each patient’s smiles and hugs and and how happy they are not only in how they look and feel about themselves, but in that they did not have to take time away from their family or work to do something really special for themselves!
I can’t imagine why other surgeons don’t do it, I am just glad that Dr. Tebbetts does!!
