After many types of surgery, plastic tubes called drains are inserted to carry excess fluids from the body. These are in place for anywhere from days to weeks of a patient’s abdominoplasty recovery. For those looking for a better way, we offer the drainless tummy tuck.
The drainless tummy tuck option is great for those patients who do not want to deal with plastic tubing during their abdominoplasty recovery. Instead of drains, internal dissolvable sutures will be used to block the spaces where the tubes are usually placed.
If this option sounds appealing, Marietta Plastic Surgery may be the ideal facility for your abdominoplasty surgery. Contact our office for an informative consultation, where you can find out more about the drainless tummy tuck.
