Otto J. Placik , MD (Chicago, IL), a board certified Plastic Surgeon, has recently developed and unveiled a new free mobile application for the iPhone, iPad and Android that is designed for patients following breast augmentation and enlargement with implants. With thousands of breast augmentation surgeries, Dr. Placik brings his expertise and experience in developing an application that offers instruction and guidance for women in performing post augmentation mammoplasty exercises.
Referred to as the Placik Protocol in Apple’s App Store, the regiment is divided into two phases, allowing users to change their routine settings including specifying which side of the body, alarm sounds, frequency, start/end times, start/end dates, printed instructions, photographs and videos.
The first phase of the application is designed to guide the patient through early phases of recovery and to help encourage flexibility and range of motion while reducing any spasm and discomfort (particularly for patients with implants underneath the muscle). The second phase exercises are designed to help guide the decent of high riding implants while helping to reduce pain and stiffness. There is a unique feature that allows users to load their own exercises with video and instruction. To find the Placik Protocol for iPhone in Apple’s App Store, CLICK HERE.
