Advanced Surgical Pain Relief
Pain after plastic surgery is inevitable. However, it may not need to be as bad as you think – or as bad as you or your friends may have experienced elsewhere!
Some procedures are more painful than others. The common procedures of tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) and breast augmentation with submuscular implant placement are the two plastic surgery procedures that have the most postoperative pain. The good news is, there are some methods to minimize this pain and minimize the need for narcotics. I’ll describe these methods after discussing narcotic pain relief.
