Drugs in Body Contouring Sat, Oct 30 10:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m. EDT

Advances in body contouring to improve safety are being made with drugs such as liposomal bupivacaine, tranexamic acid, exosomes, detergents, and early recovery after surgery protocols.

At the end of this activity participants will be able to:

  1. Discuss drugs in the setting of body contouring.
  2. Determine if injectable anesthetics and blocks can reduce post operative pain.
  3. Determine if TXA can reduce post operative bleeding or bruising.
  4. Determine the benefit of exosomes on body contouring procedures.
  5. Discuss benefits of detergents and other biologic injectables on contour.
  6. Identify was to optimize post operative recovery with perioperative non-narcotic pain control in a population that often avoids NSAIDs.
