Achieving Better Pain Control with Tummy Tuck Surgery

Tummy tuck is a very popular operation at Guerra Plastic Surgery Center in Scottsdale which entails removal of excess skin left over from pregnancy. The tummy tuck operation also involves the restoration of the abdominal wall muscles into their pre-pregnancy position. This portion of the operation is performed by suturing the stretched abdominal muscles back into position which unfortunately, can be quite uncomfortable. My patients rate this part of the operation as the most unpleasant part of the overall tummy tuck experience. Over the years, I have tried several formulations of local anesthesia to reduce the level of pain and improve the patient’s recovery experience. Studies demonstrate that patients treated with local anesthetics during surgery seem to require less pain pills and can recover faster when appropriately motivated. In the past, local anesthesia injected into the area would only last 6 to 8 hours after surgery. This short period of pain relief falls short of expectations for both plastic surgeons and tummy tuck AZ patients. The search for an ideal local anesthetic that is both safe and is longer lasting has been a challenge, but recently we have used an advanced formulation which reduces pain significantly and is effective for up to 3 days after surgery.
