Buttock implants

I perform buttock augmentations daily.  I give my patents Percocet for the firts 48 hours.  After tat most patients switch to Tylenol.  Be sure to choose a Board Certified plastic surgeon who specializes in buttock augmentation.

Pain controll following butt implant and fat grafting

I have found that best pain control following butt implant and fat grafting is a medicine called Exparel, that is injected at the end of our buttocks enhancement procedures which keeps your buttocks area numb for up to 4 days. This will allow you to avoid taking of unnecessary pain pills.

I appreciate your question.

I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients.  Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you will be healing followings surgery.

The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.

Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.

Best of luck!
