Tummy Tuck Pain Medications

Invasive procedures such as tummy tucks necessitate a pain medication which requires a long time for recovery. Like any other procedure in plastic surgery, it is inevitable to avoid the pain for it is associated in any particular operation. Regarding the pain felt by a patient who has undergone a tummy tuck, surgeons recommend certain types of medication to reduce the pain. Ibuprofen 800 mg should be taken up for minor pain medications. Ibuprofen should be taken every six hours whether or not the patient is still feeling the pain. It is proven that Ibuprofen does not only help in easing the pain of the patient but it also acts as an anti-inflammatory agent that helps with the swelling of the surrounding tissues.

On the other hand, Talwin, somehow similar to narcotics such as morphine, dilaudid and etc., is recommended for severe pain. It may be an old medication but it decreases the complications caused by taking drugs like morphine, Vicodine, or Percocet. Some of the side effects that Talwin eases are itching, nausea, vomiting and constipation. Take note that Talwin should only be taken up when needed especially if the patient is in severe pain. As day passes by, medicine continues to evolve for it can help ease the pain before the patient wakes up. Exparel, is known to remove the pain for 72 up to 96 hours after the surgery. It is a pain medication which is injected during the surgery.

Most of the time, Exparel is injected inside the muscle and surrounding tissues which have been dissected during the operation. It is known to be a wonderful medication that can be used before the patient undergo the surgery to minimize the pain after the operation. Overall, Ibuprofen, Talwin, and Exparel make a great combination that can be used to alleviate the pain during recovery.
