EXPERT Q&A

Q: What kind of pain will I experience after a mommy makeover?

What our experts say:

A lot. Most women equate the pain associated with a tummy tuck to that of a C-section. That's how a lot of patients describe it. In my practice I use a Q pain pump which is a pain catheter filled with a numbing medicine that goes directly into the muscles of your belly and if you have that you have zero pain for three to four days so it's made a significant impact on my practice. Most of my patients have no pain initially and after that they're just sore.
