Post-operative pain varies with Abdominoplasty depending on how extensive your procedure was but, in general tends to be more aggressive than pain after other procedures. You will go home with a pain pump which releases medicine into the operative area and helps with pain for the first 5 days. In addition, you will be prescribed medication to help with the pain. You will be given instructions on how to care for yourself at home. These instructions are gone over with you prior to your surgery.
