First time visitors here at our Victorville plastic surgery practice often have a lot of questions concerning the plastic surgery of their choice. One of their common concerns is about the amount of pain and discomfort they will experience. We often advise our clients that while there will still be some pain, recent advancements in plastic surgery have made it possible for less pain and discomfort during procedures — may it be a tummy tuck or a face lift.
Factors Influencing One’s Perception of Pain
Pain is subjective and the degree that one can tolerate may vary from one person to another. Each individual is unique, making it difficult to particularly gauge how much pain a certain procedure (and its recovery phase) will cause.
One’s experience and perception with pain and discomfort in a plastic surgery procedure may be influenced by the following factors:
- the type of surgery performed
- use of anesthesia
- previous experiences with pain
- age (younger patients have been observed to be more sensitive to pain than the older patients)
- gender (male patients have been observed to have lower threshold for pain than their female counterparts)
Perception of pain with plastic surgery often comes after the procedure — when the effects of anesthesia has subsided.
