San Diego Plastic Surgeon Offers a Guide for Breast Augmentation Recovery

Dr. Scott R. Miller Explains Why Upfront and In-Depth Discussions About the Recovery Process From Breast Augmentation Is Vital to Help Patients Clearly Understand What to Expect

SAN DIEGO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/07/14 -- Dr. Scott R. Miller, a board-certified plastic surgeon, performs a variety of plastic surgery procedures at his practice in San Diego, with breast surgery being one of the most common among his patients. According to the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) almost 300,000 breast augmentation procedures were performed in the U.S. last year, making it the most popular cosmetic surgery procedure. As more and more women opt for breast augmentation surgery, Dr. Miller recognizes the need for a speedy recovery period, as many patients cannot afford the long downtime away from their daily routines.

Dr. Miller notes how patients interested in breast augmentation can be apprehensive about the procedure. They often express concerns regarding the length of recovery, pain after surgery, and their range of mobility during the initial weeks following the treatment. Dr. Miller says he provides his patients with guidelines for recovery before surgery, so they are well-informed about what they can expect and have realistic expectations of the entire process.

At Dr. Miller's San Diego plastic surgery practice, the breast augmentation procedure usually takes one or two hours to complete. He then prescribes medication for pain and discomfort that, he notes, typically subsides in two to three days. While patients should regain most of their mobility during this time period, Dr. Miller cautions against any heavy lifting and strenuous exercise. Most women are able to return to work in four to five days and return to their normal exercise routines in four to six weeks.

Before patients look at the details of recovery from breast surgery, such as an augmentation or breast lift, Dr. Miller urges them to spend time considering their surgeon. He recommends patients consult a board-certified plastic surgeon to discuss their goals, the surgical options available to them, and what they can expect in regard to results and recovery. By choosing an experienced surgeon, Dr. Miller says patients can increase their chances of receiving the highest quality of care and the most natural-looking results.

IoT & Smart Cities Stories
The deluge of IoT sensor data collected from connected devices and the powerful AI required to make that data actionable are giving rise to a hybrid ecosystem in which cloud, on-prem and edge processes become interweaved. Attendees will learn how emerging composable infrastructure solutions deliver the adaptive architecture needed to manage this new data reality. Machine learning algorithms can better anticipate data storms and automate resources to support surges, including fully scalable GPU-c...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
The explosion of new web/cloud/IoT-based applications and the data they generate are transforming our world right before our eyes. In this rush to adopt these new technologies, organizations are often ignoring fundamental questions concerning who owns the data and failing to ask for permission to conduct invasive surveillance of their customers. Organizations that are not transparent about how their systems gather data telemetry without offering shared data ownership risk product rejection, regu...

Poor data quality and analytics drive down business value. In fact, Gartner estimated that the average financial impact of poor data quality on organizations is $9.7 million per year. But bad data is much more than a cost center. By eroding trust in information, analytics and the business decisions based on these, it is a serious impediment to digital transformation.

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
As IoT continues to increase momentum, so does the associated risk. Secure Device Lifecycle Management (DLM) is ranked as one of the most important technology areas of IoT. Driving this trend is the realization that secure support for IoT devices provides companies the ability to deliver high-quality, reliable, secure offerings faster, create new revenue streams, and reduce support costs, all while building a competitive advantage in their markets. In this session, we will use customer use cases...
