Pain-free Denver plastic surgery is within reach.
New technology has made it possible to control postoperative discomfort more effectively. The Pain Pump (anesthetic pump) is a breakthrough technology that has dramatically improved the comfort of my patients during the post-op period. The Pain Pump is a simple device that connects a reservoir of local anesthetic (“novacaine”) to a very fine tubing (catheter) that drips the local anesthetic right into the surgery site to keep it numb for days after surgery. The result is much greater comfort for our patients.
For over 6 years, we’ve been using the Pain Pump routinely in Denver breast augmentation (breast implant surgery) and abdominoplasty (tummy tuck) procedures with great success and safety in over 700 patients. The results have been so excellent that we are submitting our results to plastic surgery journals for publication.
We carefully recorded the number of pain pills used by our patients with Pain Pumps and compared that with the number of pain pills used by our patients without pain pumps. We also asked those same two groups of patients to score the amount of pain they experienced on a scale of 1-10.
The patients with Pain Pumps used half as many pain pills and rated their pain 50% lower than the patients without Pain Pumps!
Using fewer pain pills also means less nausea.
Less pain and nausea mean greater postoperative comfort and faster recovery.
