5 day after breast augmentation: peak periods of a lot of pain. Low on pain meds - ibuprofen not helping.

breast augmentation 5 days ago still seem to get a lot of pain in the incision area. Ibuprofen does not help ease the pain and I'm running out of the pain medication Is there anything else I can take that will help with the pain. When does the white tape put on the incision remove. Does the doctor do it on your first week follow up?

I appreciate your question.

Since there has been a change in your post op course, please contact your surgeon so he/she can examine you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan at this time.

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 breast surgery.

Best of luck!
