Plenty of options
There are several options for pain and fever relief that are not Tylenol or aspirin derivatives. Advil orMotrin are good alternatives, with tornados being better suited for more severe pain. Your surgeon and pharmacist can find a good choice for you.
Multiple pain med allergies
This problem will probably be over the head of your surgeon. Your primary physician may be able to help find an appropriate pain med for you.
What your surgeon can do, depending upon the exact procedures you will be having, is use a pain pump which can deliver 48 hours (or longer if refilled) worth of local anesthesia to the abdomen if a tummy tuck is done, and to the breasts.
Thanks for the interesting question, and best wishes.
Managing surgical pain
