What is a “no drain tummy tuck?”

istock 475742572 At Thomas Wiener Plastic Surgery, Houston, TX area patients have a wide selection of cosmetic, elective procedures available for enhancing the body contours. One trouble area for both adult men and women is that of the stomach. While liposuction can help in removing excess fat, it may leave behind sagging, excess skin as well. This is when patients might want to think about the tummy tuck procedure. The tummy tuck not only removes fat, but excess skin for a tighter midsection. In doing so, patients will enjoy the benefits of a slimmer contour and feel more confident in the skin they’re in.

What is a no drain tummy tuck?

Dr. Thomas Wiener of Houston, TX is excited to offer the no drain tummy tuck for patients who are interested in slimming the midsection. Surgical drains are commonly used in plastic surgery, though they can be uncomfortable and irritating. Many patients worry about them functioning properly, and might find that they make everyday activities difficult, including walking, showering, and even getting dressed. This is why our team focuses on using progressive tension sutures during tummy tucks, which replace the need for surgical drains. By utilizing this approach, patients no longer have to deal with troublesome drains after their procedure, making recovery faster and much more comfortable.

Am I a candidate for a no drain tummy tuck?
