A tummy tuck is a wonderful solution for patients who have excess skin and fat in the midsection of their body. The abdomen is one of the most stubborn areas that can be difficult to reduce with traditional diet and exercise. If you’re ready to make a dramatic change and address unwanted fat and excess skin in the tummy area, a tummy tuck might be right for you! At the practice of Dr. Thomas Wiener, a board certified plastic surgeon, patients can ask about a procedure with less pain, reduced tension, and better final results called the no-drain tummy tuck.
How does a no-drain tummy tuck work?
During conventional surgeries, surgical drains are commonly placed to help in handling the excess fluids that can develop after procedures. However, these surgical drains, especially in the abdominal area, can be problematic for patients, making everyday procedures uncomfortable or difficult. This extends the recovery time needed after plastic surgeries. Instead, Dr. Thomas Wiener offers a tummy tuck treatment that does not require surgical drains, allowing for improved comfort and faster healing. Instead of placing surgical drains, progressive tension sutures are used instead. These help in lowering the seroma rate and relieves tension in the treatment area.
What are the benefits of a no-drain tummy tuck?
A no-drain tummy tuck is:
- Effective in addressing excess fluids produced after surgery
- Significantly lowers the risk of seroma
- Reduces the risk of infection
- Improves the appearance of remaining scars
- Less tension and discomfort following the procedure
- Speed healing and recovery, while allowing more comfort
