Abdominoplasty is a major surgery, and as with any major surgery you should expect some pain. However Dr. Gawley is dedicated to making your recovery as comfortable as possible. He will prescribe pain relievers as needed and also offers the On-Q pain pump system which delivers local anesthetic to the surgical area for several days after your operation.

Significant pain three months after in abdominoplasty is unusual.
