Breast augmentation & BBL

So I am wanting to get a breast augmentation and bbl in the next few months. I am currently taking suboxone 8/2mg for 5+ yrs now. My dr is aware of my surgical journey I am going to be taking but she isnt sure if taking a extra suboxone is enough for post-op pain. What is the best approach for my post-op pain??

Procedure: Breast Augmentation
Location: Albuquerque, NM

Your pain management doctor is the best one to determine what is the best pain control for you. I have treated many patients who have a pain contract and their pain doctor always coordinates with me during the postop period. Good luck.

Thank you for sharing your question. A conversation between your pain management physician and plastic surgeon is critical to ensure appropriate steps are taken to help you during recovery. I would inform both of your desired procedures so that a conversation can start between them now. Hope this helps.
