It is Tuesday evening after a full day of surgery. As is my routine, I called each of my patients to see how they doing. All three answered their cell phones almost immediately sounding perfectly well. One said she was doing ‘Great;’ the next said that she was ‘Absolutely perfect!’ and the third said ‘Outstanding.’ Two had breast augmentations, the other a tummy tuck. In each case, a little extra time was taken to inject a dilute solution of local anesthetic at the time of surgery.
It is amazing not only how much a difference it can make in a patients recovery, but also that so many plastic surgeons do not spend the few minutes to provide their patients such profound pain relief.
