Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today – Recovering From Surgery Doesn’t Have To Be Painful: Dr Lycka & Dr Goldberg

It’s true. Whilst we have anaesthesia to cope with pain during surgery, there are several techniques that can be used to minimize pain after surgery, during your healing & recovery. A great surgeon will be planning to minimize your pain before the surgery, during the surgery and after the surgery. This is the subject discussed this week on Inside Cosmetic Surgery Today when we talk with dual certified plastic and craniofacial surgeon Dr Cory Goldberg, from his Toronto, Ontario practice.  Dr Goldberg talks with show host, Edmonton-based cosmetic dermatologist Dr Barry Lycka about minimizing pain from surgery. The two doctors talk in-depth about how pain is triggered, and how it affects the levels of post-surgical recovery discomfort. Dr Goldberg highlights the benefits of using topical and injectable local anaesthetic during surgery, and alternatives to opioids. Both doctors are strong supporters of Glisodin natural supplements, and share experience that the reduction in inflammation it creates, reduces the levels of pain medication patients take after their surgery. So don’t be scared of pain after surgery – choose a wise surgeon who knows how to minimize it for you!
