The use of multimodal analgesia for pain control in Enhanced Recovery After Surgery (ERAS) protocols is at the forefront of plastic surgery. Caroline K Scruggs @carolinescruggs and her co-authors from the University of Texas Medical Branch Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery evaluated the effects of a non narcotic regimen on perioperative and outpatient prescription opioid use as well as surgical duration. She and her co-authors found a significant reduction in perioperative opioid use, outpatient narcotic prescriptions, and procedure duration for the ERAS study group, suggesting that non opioid pain control is globally feasible for all plastic surgery procedures.
