Breast Implants and Breast Surgery
Breast Implants and Breast Surgery will call for the need for managing pain. First, managing pain after plastic surgery including breast augmentation can be a challenge. Medication is prescribed regularly to manage pain and decrease recovery time. Opiates are medications used in controlling pain after breast lift surgery or breast augmentation. They have many unpleasant side effects outside of the obvious potential for abuse. View more breast augmentation results at Finer You
Other side effects include constipation, nausea, vomiting, vertigo (spinning), itching, and fatigue.
Secondly, for this reason, non-habit forming drugs with anti inflammation properties have seen greater use. In particular, Toradol, has been used with greater frequency. This is to decrease the need for opiate type drugs. The key to managing pain post surgery is being familiar with your medication and dosage to stay ahead of the pain. Breast surgery and breast implants needed for breast augmentation is a serious surgery that needs pain management.
Recovery Period Post Surgery
A recent study called “Toradol following Breast Surgery: Is There an Increased Risk of Hematoma?” aimed to look at that problem. The authors reviewed records of breast surgery patients (mastopexy or breast lift) at their institution, from January 2012 through December 2014. The study drew data from a hospital based population. The medication was administered through a vein rather than by mouth. The drug was given immediately after surgery. Then every six hours as needed for pain for an average of 2 to 3 days. They were allowed to have opiate type medication or Tylenol, if needed.
What do we get from this?
In summary, it’s most likely okay to use Ibuprofen or Naproxyn after breast Implants and breast surgery in otherwise healthy individuals but it is not clear how effective they are.
