Safe Post-Procedure Pain Management
in Fayetteville, Springdale, Rogers, Bentonville Arkansas
At Taylor Plastic Surgery, we strive to make sure all of our patients have a comfortable recovery after surgery. In the past, it has been difficult to keep patients comfortable without the use of narcotic pain medication. Now there is a safer, non-narcotic pain management solution called Exparel. Exparel is a local analgesic that allows patients to avoid or use lower doses of narcotic painkillers for recovery.
What is Exparel®?
Similar to how a dentist numbs the mouth of their patient before a filling, Exparel is a used by a surgeon to numb the surgical site. This injectable local analgesic drastically reduces your need for pain medication for a comfortable recovery. The medication is administered by your surgeon the day of the procedure and slowly released the active ingredient bupivacaine. Bupivacaine is a slow pain management ingredient that helps control pain before it starts. Exparel only the numbs the area injected to provide comfort to the surgical site.
