Take medications when needed to relieve discomfort.
Before your procedure, we give you a small dose of Xanax and Tramadol to help you feel relaxed and comfortable. During the procedure, and with the guidance of our team, you can self-administer laughing gas (nitrous oxide and oxygen) as needed to manage any discomfort. You’ll be awake and comfortable the whole time, able to interact with your plastic surgeon for a safe and totally personalized experience.
For safety, we give you two doses of an IV antibiotic; one before the procedure and one at the end.
When it’s time to leave, our plastic surgeons will prescribe an anti-inflammatory such as ibuprofen, acetaminophen, an acid blocker, an anti-nausea pill and an antibiotic to take for five days. If you need anything stronger, we’ll prescribe that for you, too.
Since these medications and doses are customized to each individual, we’ll give you precise details and instructions on the day of your procedure.
