New On-Q Pain Pump Making Tummy Tucks Easier

Thanks to the new On-Q Pain Pump, tummy tuck surgery is on the rise at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas. Houston plastic surgeon Dr. Leo Lapuerta leads the way in Houston and looks forward to continued increase in tummy tuck patients.

(PRWEB) May 2, 2010 -- Tummy tucks tighten and tone the abdominal area and lead to impressive results, especially as summer and beach season approaches. Recovery from a tummy tuck is now more comfortable than ever, thanks to the new On-Q pain pump used by Houston cosmetic surgeons at the Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas.

This special pump can deliver pain relief for up to 100 hours after surgery; it allows patients to go home the same day as their surgery, and it makes recovery more comfortable, with less nausea and discomfort.

“With the On-Q pain pump, people who have tummy tucks can focus on their beautiful new abs, rather than the discomfort of recovery,” said Dr. Leo LaPuerta, owner of Plastic Surgery Institute of Southeast Texas and board-certified cosmetic surgeon. “There are no buttons to push and no complicated mechanisms to worry about. Parents of young children can get back to their busy lives without worrying about the side effects of other medications.”

A tummy tuck or abdominoplasty removes fat and excess skin from the low to mid-stomach area and tightens up the abdominal wall muscles, leading to dramatic results. It was the fifth most common cosmetic surgery in 2009. On-Q promises to make tummy tucks more popular in 2010. The On-Q pain pump, then, simply makes recovery easier and more comfortable.
