Pain meds after BBL
The pain after a BBL is a product of the aggressiveness of the liposuction. I usually prescribe Percocet or Vicodin. Of course this is highly dependent on pain tolerance of the patient but the BBL can cause significant pain after surgery. Please consult with your doctor.
Pain after BBL surgery
Every one has different pain thresholds, so some people hurt a lot, and some only hurt a little after BBL surgery. I provide my patients with strongnarcotic pain medicines so that they are prepared for the worst. In general, my patients have been suprised that their pain is less than they expected. Those of us that specialize in BBL surgery have developed our own techniques to keep pain as low as possible.
Hydrocodone or Tylenol #3 after Brazilian Buttlift
Hydrocodone or Percocet after Brazilian buttlift is fairly standard. Tylenol #3 contains a pain medication that is weaker than the other two. Diclofenac I do not prescribe due to bleeding risk. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Pain After Brazilian Butt Lift
I usually prescribe hydrocodone for pain for my patients after a Brazilian Butt Lift. Every person has a different pain threshold and I would discuss your concerns with your surgeon and ask for something stronger if you think you might need it.
