There is no magic technique to allow a faster or more rapid recovery. Soft tissue heals slowly in everyone. The more conservative the size/style of implant, the less tightness and pressure you may experience, and the prettier your starting breast and less complex the pocket development, the quicker things soreness will resolve and a pretty breast will appear but "healing" still happens at the same rate. Above the muscle placement will heal faster with less restrictions, as the muscle is not disturbed, but has some significant long term negatives with higher rates of contracture, and much less natural, more visible implant and potential to interfere with mammograms.
The only difference is how long or strict a surgeon is with their instructions. I tend to be very strict, for a longer period of time, but also have a lower revision rate (5% in my practice) than what is published (7-9%). Fixing things is hard, costs more money and won't look as good. Someone can send you back to work the same day and call it a "lunch hour augmentation" to generate business, and attention, but if the results stink and the complication rate is 50% what a disservice that used car sales tatic was to that patient!
Ultimately what you did or didn't do for a few weeks after surgery doesn't matter if you have a bad result or complication, and will be a distant memory if you love your augmentated breasts. So I think you're focusing on the wrong thing. Focus on your end result, minimizing complications and adjust logistics to optimize those chances as ultimately results are the only thing that matters.
Find a surgeon who can provide detailed complication rate data (I even go as far as doubling my contracture and malposition numbers, since some patients may move and have surgery with another surgeon). In some practices you will never even see the surgeon again or they are just contracted to come and do surgery for a franchise! Best to seek a board certified breast expert doing at least 300 augmentations a year rather than fall for marketing hype!
