Many patients are concerned about postoperative pain, this is a normal concern.
At the Thompson Center for Plastic Surgery we offer our patients Exparel, which is administered before you wake up from surgery. Dr. Thompson applies Exparel during your surgical procedure while you are still under anesthesia. Exparel works by numbing the area around the surgical site and lasts for up to 72 hours. Exparel is non-narcotic and may allow for less of a need for pain medications after surgery.
Ensuring the comfort of our patients before and after surgery is a top priority at the Thompson Center for Plastic Surgery. During your consultation Dr. Thompson will discuss Exparel and your pain management options to provide you with a comfortable experience.
