ANSWER

Pain Pumps Can Answer Post-op Breast Aug Pain

Thanks for your question There are several techniques that can be used to minimize post-op pain after a breast augmentation In our San Francisco area practice, in addition to using pain pumps where appropriate, we also place Marcaine into each pocket with the implants. We have found this to be an easy way to make the first night much less painful. Talk to your plastic surgeon about options. I hope this helps.
