Body contouring procedures, including abdominoplasty, liposuction, implant placement, body contouring following bariatric surgery, and gluteal augmentation with autologous fat grafting, continue to be some of the most popular plastic surgery operations performed. Given that these surgeries frequently involve perturbing large areas of the body, postoperative pain can be significant, and effective perioperative pain management (with a particular emphasis on multimodal pain management strategies aimed at minimizing opioid consumption) is crucial for optimizing outcomes and patient satisfaction. Subsequently, the first half of this chapter addresses general management strategies for body contouring procedures, and the second half covers specific considerations for each aforementioned body contouring procedure.
