Allow us to introduce you to Tummy Tuck and The Pain Pump. The tummy tuck, also called abdominoplasty surgery, is the surgical removal of abdominal skin and fat and tweaking of the abdominal muscle which results in a tighter abdomen.
Most plastic surgeons will agree that the abdominoplasty surgery is one of the more uncomfortable procedures performed by board certified plastic surgeons. Patients often have two weeks of recovery with the procedure and it can take a few months to feel one hundred percent.
Dr. Christine Sullivan knew there had to be a way to get patients through the initial 72 post surgical hours. About a decade ago Dr. Sullivan began researching pain pumps and the effect it would have on her abdominoplasty patients. The pain pump contains numbing medication that is dispended through a tiny tube that is threaded throughout the surgical site. The medication is encased in a “fanny pack”. She found that every patient trialed with the pain pump experienced an easier 72 hours period immediately following recovery.
The pain pump allows patients to move around a little easier which promotes healing. We have not looked back since! This is just one of the small things that makes a really big difference to our patients.
