Non-opioid protocol means no pain and quick recovery at Chicago Iteld Plastic SurgeryYou’ve probably had friends tell you how they spent days (or even weeks) in pain and with limited mobility following their surgery. But, if you’ve spoken to a patient who came to Iteld Plastic Surgery and had Dr. Iteld perform their procedure, you’d have a very different response. No pain. Quick recovery. Back to their normal lives faster then they imagined was possible.

When you elect to have Dr. Iteld as your aesthetic surgeon, you can be confident that your experience will be focused on outcomes, safety, and minimizing pain so that you don’t need narcotic painkillers. 

Dr. Iteld’s three step protocol

His tried-and-true three step protocol means no pain and less recovery time for you!

  1. Before your procedure, Dr. Iteld will prescribe medication to help minimize inflammation, bruising and nausea from anesthesia.
  2. During your procedure, Dr. Iteld will use long-lasting local anesthetic that lasts for up to 48 hours after surgery, to minimize any localized discomfort. This gives you the time you need to recover pain-free.
  3. After your procedure, and specific to your personal needs, Dr. Iteld may administer time-release muscle relaxants and anti-inflammatories for your continued comfort and healing.

Imagine having the procedure you want with no pain and faster recovery. That’s what you can expect when I perform your surgery and manage your care.
— Dr. Iteld
