Options for Anesthesia
You have the choice to have your abdominoplasty under Total IV Anesthesia (TIVA). Our team creates a safe environment and effectively administers the anesthesia before the tummy tuck.
The medications used to anesthetize are similar in composition but differ in dosage and level of consciousness. The safest dosage of TIVA anesthesia can be reversed quickly, waking up the patient in a manner of minutes after their procedure. Patients have less nausea and a faster recovery with this technique.
Disadvantages of general anesthesia:
- Requires breathing assistance (ventilation)
- Patient is put in an induced coma, rendering them completely unconscious
- Results in the loss of control of reflexes and the autonomic nervous system
- Increased costs
Advantages of TIVA:
- Mild dose of drugs used to block pain, reduce anxiety, and provide temporary memory loss (allows patient to feel comfortable before and after surgery)
- Patient remains breathing on their own but completely asleep
- Quicker recovery times and reduced side effects such as nausea and vomiting
- Responsive, able to follow direction or communicate with surgeon
- Reduced risk of complication
- Lower general costs
- Safely monitored oxygen levels, BP, pulse, and respiratory rates
Generally, tummy tuck patients are prescribed antibiotics for 7-10 days and pain medication as needed. Commonly prescribed medications will include:
- Prescribed pain medication, including a prescription-strength anti-inflammatory called Celebrex and Percocet for additional pain control as needed
- Antibiotics, such as Keflex
- Medication for nausea, such as Zofran (if necessary)
We also inject a long-acting numbing medication at the conclusion of the procedures to minimize pain. This list is not absolute and can vary pending on the post-op consultation results at Omni Cosmetic.
