Non-Opioid EXPAREL® Provided for Oral Surgery Patients at Tampa Surgical Arts

EXPARELAt Tampa Surgical Arts, we’re proud to offer EXPAREL® to make the postoperative process following a surgery procedure easier than ever. This long-acting local anesthetic is particularly useful for oral surgery patients, and will be expertly administered by Dr. Manik S. Bedi, our renowned oral surgeon.

What Is EXPAREL?

At the end of most oral surgery procedures, an anesthetic called Bupivacaine is administered to provide up to eight hours of pain relief. EXPAREL is specially formulated to slowly release Bupivacaine into the soft tissues of the surgical site over the course of 72 hours. This ensures your pain relief lasts longer than the typical local anesthetic and that you will have reduced need for narcotic pain medication as you’re recovering.

How Is EXPAREL Administered?

Intended for single-dose only, EXPAREL is administered during your procedure, while you’re still under sedation, to ensure your postsurgical pain is at a manageable level when you wake up. It is injected right into your surgical site. At Tampa Surgical Arts, we use EXPAREL most commonly in oral surgery procedures, including wisdom teeth removal.

What Are the Benefits of EXPAREL?

The main benefit of EXPAREL is that it reduces, or even eliminates, the need for opioid pain treatment following surgery. Because the medication is slowly released over the course of three days following a surgical procedure, when pain is typically at its peak, patients can usually rely on over-the-counter pain relievers to control their pain once EXPAREL wears off. Opioid pain treatment is highly addictive and the side effects are generally very unpleasant, which is why many patients nowadays are interested in non-opioid options that still offer significant pain relief.

EXPAREL is especially beneficial for oral surgery patients, as many of them are children or teenagers and their introduction to opioid medication is from these procedures. Parents are concerned about their children being prescribed this type of addictive medication, so they are pleased to learn Dr. Bedi offers EXPAREL for his patients.

EXPAREL at Tampa Surgical Arts

Dr. Bedi at Tampa Surgical Arts is uniquely qualified to offer a truly opioid-free experience for his patients, including opioid-free sedation. He is a triple-board-certified oral and maxillofacial surgeon, making him one of the few dental specialists in the Tampa Bay Area who can safely administer other medications during sedation (e.g. ketamine, propofol) and avoid highly addictive medications, such as fentanyl. If you are interested in an opioid-free oral surgery experience using EXPAREL, please contact Tampa Surgical Arts today.

CORRECTIVE CASES

A corrective case is one that involves reducing irregularities from a previous procedure.

Most of the procedures we do are revisions, meaning the primary surgery was done by another provider.

In the procedure detail, at the end of the caption, you will get most of the information that you need about the case.

This beautiful client came to see us for a revision after having lipo elsewhere.

Her results are a perfect example of how maintaining a healthy lifestyle will get you next level results!

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they do corrective cases.

Procedure: Revision 4D Liposculpture 360⚡️

ULTRASOUND GUIDED BBL

Using an ultrasound helps the surgeon see important structures during fat transfer and is a tool that can increase client safety.

There are no major downsides to using an ultrasound.

There is an added cost to the facility and a slight learning curve to using an ultrasound.

Some surgeons do not use ultrasound and obtain great results, which is fine for them.

Most experienced BBL surgeons would agree that ultrasound definitely adds safety and certainly does not cause harm.

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they perform ultrasound guided fat transfer to the buttocks.

SITTING AFTER BBL

The skin on the laterals/hip dip area is typically the tightest in the buttock area.

For those who want this area "filled," sometimes a round 2 BBL is required.

Even in the best hands, a round 2 fat transfer might not fully add enough volume to the hip dip.

This beautiful client is over 6 months out and had great fat uptake in the laterals after one BBL.

She has been using her BBL pillow the entire time!

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES how to long to use your BBL pillow.

FINESSE SCULPTING

The best results are consistently in those who have a positive mindset and strive to live their best life everyday.

A balanced body emulates the qualities of elegance, class, luxury, and of course a natural appearance.

BBL SWELLING

The journey of body sculpting is typically filled with the `ups and downs` of panicking about butt size.

The most common thing we hear on day 1 is "my butt is way too big!"

Most often, it settles in a few weeks, and then we commonly hear at a few months, "I wish it was bigger, can I get a round 2"

This beautiful client wanted a natural appearance and is now at her final buttock contour.

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES what to expect in the swelling phase.

BUTTOCK AUGMENTATION

The trend of unnatural/ overdone BBL`s is rarely requested by clients.

Instead, clients want a natural and proportionate look, which also happens to be a timeless appearance.

This beautiful client came to see me to fill her hip dips for a more athletic appearance overall.

COMBO CASES

Some clients will need a staged approach to achieve their desired goal.

A select few can have multiple procedures done at the same time.

This beautiful client came to see us for a smaller waist and to fill her hip dips.

@dr.tolomeo did her tummy tuck and I performed the BBL.

Who is excited to see how this one turns out?

LASER FOCUSED

We are fortunate enough to be a destination center for body sculpting.

More specifically, we focus on butt enhancements/ultrasound guided fat transfer to the buttocks (BBL) and related procedures (4D body contouring/lipo 360).

This allows the team to optimize outcomes, improve client experience, and most importantly, keep safety paramount.

This beautiful woman had a round 2 BBL to achieve this look.

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if they are laser focused on one set of procedures.

SKIN QUALITY

The best candidates for liposculpture will have tight skin with no stretch marks.

If you have loose skin with stretch marks, you will require a skin removal procedure (tummy tuck).

Some are blessed to have tight skin after multiple pregnancies.

Others will have loose skin and no history of pregnancy.

This beautiful client had 4 previous pregnancies and was a candidate for liposculpture with skin tightening.

MEASURING WAIST TO HIP RATIO

A balanced/proportionate fat transfer to the buttocks (BBL) is a popular trend now.

This has been our philosophy from the beginning.

A common misconception is that a round 2 BBL will look fake.

This beautiful client had a round 2 to fill her hip dips and accentuate her curves.

She now has an improvement in her W::H ratio.

This ratio is just one tool that might be used to track your progress.

Can you guess her waist to hip ratio?

***BEDIFINED + Healthy Lifestyle = Best Results

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES if measuring your W::H ratio is useful.

CONTOURING

Body sculpting focuses on highlighting your underlying anatomy and curves.

Not all clients require a fat transfer to achieve a natural look.

As always, doing this procedure with hidden entry points requires the combination of artistic judgment and technical surgical skill.

All of this is done to limit the chance of visible scars.

LATERALS

Fat transfer to the laterals typically has the least amount of uptake.

This area can sometimes need a round 2 fat transfer to achieve the desired look.

Some clients have great underlying bone structure, skin elasticity, fat quality, genetics, blessed by fat transfer magicians, etc... and will have great uptake after 1 round.

This beautiful client had a round 1 BBL only.

IRRELEVANT NOISE

Body sculpting is best for those who want to be the best version of themselves.

It is not for those looking for quick fix weight loss; instead, for those who are trying to achieve fine tuning, balance, and curves.

The same noise directed at those who get elective procedures done is found towards physique enthusiasts who take gear, HRT, etc..

If you think competitive a bodybuilder obtains their physique with only supplements you don`t understand the amount of dedication it takes to train your body.

Similarly, body contouring requires a dedicated commitment to the process.

This beautiful woman came to see me for corrective lipo and to fill her hip dips.

SKIN TIGHTENING

Internal plus external skin tightening is the latest technology we have been providing to our clients.

The best candidate for this type of tightening is someone with minimal to no stretch marks.

This beautiful client had lipo elsewhere and was left with multiple contour irregularities in the belly region.

She came to see us for a natural and balanced appearance.

We used internal radiofrequency plus external radiofrequency tightening to help achieve this look.

SCULPTING FOR SECONDARY CURVES

Creating a natural look is sculpting that highlights your underlying foundation.

Some are blessed with starting bone and muscular structure that allows for a very curvy body.

The secondary curve is when the waist area is contoured to create the optical illusion of larger buttocks.

The primary curve is typically from adding volume (fat transfer) to the hips/laterals/buttocks.

The key 🔑 is to make sure your entire surgery team COMMUNICATES how sculpting can enhance your curves.
