Talk to your Plastic Surgeon about Pain Medication Use

Prescription #medication is not a matter other surgeons or physicians than your own can advise on, without seeing you in-person or knowing your #medical history and surgical details. Therefore, its best to ask your surgeon this and about any additional medication use you have concerns about.

Dental work injections should be fine, however, always best practice to contact your doctor and confirm.

Hi rockday,
Thanks for the post. At 7 weeks it should be fine to have the dental work (including the injections and pain medication) without worrying about any risk to your chest. As for the compression vest, I recommend following your surgeon's guidelines as tio when to stop wearing it. I typically have my patients stop wearing it between 4-6 weeks after surgery.
