You decided that you want to get a tummy tuck to sculpt your stomach to look the way that you want it to look. Diet and exercise haven’t been enough to give you the results that you want. You’re still dealing with small pockets of stubborn fat that won’t go away and loose abdominal muscles. A tummy tuck is an excellent alternative. As you prepare for your procedure, you need to think about what will benefit you the most. EXPAREL can help you to have a more positive experience when you go in for your tummy tuck.
How Can EXPAREL Help You?
EXPAREL is a type of local anesthetic that acts as a nerve block. It is used to numb the entire area while our plastic surgeon is performing your surgery. It contains a medication known as bupivacaine that will be released slowly into the surgical site. It lasts for an extended amount of time, helping you to avoid discomfort during your procedure. EXPAREL can even minimize your discomfort after your surgery is over. As another benefit, it is not a narcotic.
Why Choose EXPAREL During Your Tummy Tuck Procedure?
When you opt for a tummy tuck with EXPAREL, you may have a shorter recovery time. You don’t have to worry about the potential complications that can come with an increased risk of post-operative discomfort. EXPAREL targets the area where incisions will be made. It is highly effective and can help you to have a lower level of discomfort when your tummy tuck is over.
What Can You Expect with EXPAREL?
EXPAREL is delivered via injection. As a result, the entire area will be numbed, allowing our plastic surgeon to remove the excess skin, get rid of the fat and tighten the muscles of your stomach. You will be sent to the recovery room after your procedure. EXPAREL will eventually wear off; however, it could lessen your discomfort after the procedure for up to three days. You may not feel the need for pain medication, or you may need less of it, thanks to the effectiveness of EXPAREL.
