Post Cosmetic Surgery Pain

People who undergo cosmetic surgery such as liposuction or any other cosmetic plastic surgery, may suffer from pain after surgery. Working closely with your doctor and following up with postoperative instructions is crucial for managing pain. The extent and degree of pain a patient may experience will depend on several factors such as the type of procedure, previous experiences with pain, use of anesthesia during the procedure, your gender, and age.

Symptoms of pain after cosmetic surgery are relieved by oral pain medications and a combination of treatment options your surgeon may prescribe to initiate recovery. Your doctor may prescribe non-surgical cosmetic treatments done by a non-medical professional such as Aestheticians or beauty therapists. Some of the treatment options include regional, systemic or local anaesthesia and nerve blocks.
