What is a no-drain tummy tuck?
Like so many people around the globe, are you also facing problems with a stretched abdomen? The tummy tuck procedure has helped millions regain their shape and reduce that belly which has been hanging like stretched rubber. The surgery removes the extra fat and tightens the underlying abdominal muscles. Even though innumerable women have reversed their post pregnancy bellies with a tummy tuck, what has kept some away from this beneficial surgery is the use of drains during recovery. This has led to the new technique of tummy tuck which eliminates the use of the bothersome drainage tubes.
How is a no-drain tummy tuck different from the traditional procedure?
The no-drain tummy tuck has several benefits when compared to the traditional technique. The stitches used during the no-drain procedure are made between the belly and the abdominal wall allowing the fluids to escape easily. This prevents the fluids from collecting in the spaces found in the abdominal walls.
Benefits of a no-drain tummy tuck
Here are some of the major benefits of the no-drain procedure making it much sought after:
Healing is faster.
There is no need to drain the fluids a few times a day unlike during the traditional procedure.
No risks of infection.
Patients report less pain with this procedure.
You can return to your normal routine faster.
The formation as well as the appearance of scars is minimized.
The buildup of fluids within your skin or seroma is greatly reduced.
Are you a good candidate for a no-drain tummy tuck?
If you qualify for a tummy tuck, then you are a good candidate for the no-drain procedure as well. Some people might think if they have already had a liposuction, they do not require a tummy tuck too. You need to understand that liposuction alone cannot give you the results that a tummy tuck can.
Before you undergo the procedure, here are a few ways you can prepare yourself:
Store up on all the prescribed medication.
Keep soft bandages and gauze that you can use on the incision.
You will feel comfortable in granny panties during your healing period so buy some.
Magnesia and stool softener will help you.
Eating healthy will help during the recovery period; get adequate fruits, vegetables, lean proteins and protein shakes.
Magazines and movies will help keep you busy when you are not sleeping but have to be inactive.
A friend or family member to help you around the house and with kids or pets will be great during the first few days of recovery.
