Options in Pain and Drain-Free Tummy Tucks

Published on: February 23, 2015

One of the most popular cosmetic surgery procedures is the tummy tuck, to reduce the size and appearance of the abdomen area. For many people, a tummy tuck can give them back the flatter stomach of their youth, increasing their self-confidence and enhancing the shape of their body. However, depending on how the procedure is performed, there can be some pain and complications. For those considering this life-changing operation, there are new options that can provide safer and less painful results.

Pain and Drain-Free Tummy Tucks

One of the complications from a traditional tummy tuck is the need to drain the area from accumulated fluid during recovery from the procedure. This involves placing a drainage tube, which can be uncomfortable or even painful. The good news is that there are new innovations in the tummy tuck procedure which can help avoid the need for inserting a drainage device, and the pain that accompanies it.

Experienced plastic surgeons can now offer pain and drain-free tummy tucks with fewer potential complications while creating better final results. This is done with skilled and careful incisions, specific use of liposuction and other surgical expertise. When done correctly, patients don’t need the drainage tube which has previously been common in this procedure, reducing the chance of complications and pain after the surgery.

If you’re considering a tummy tuck, you want a surgeon who’s highly experienced in this delicate procedure. Research your options to find a plastic surgeon who specializes in drain and pain-free tummy tucks to improve your recovery and give you the best final results: the flatter stomach you desire.
