- Posted on: Nov 22 2016
Drainless tummy tuck is not just a traditional tummy tuck performed without the use of drains. Specific techniques with either quilting sutures or sparing the scarpas fascia which has the most lymphatic drainage tissue in the abdominal wall deep to the skin. By preserving the scarpas fascia the bodies own internal drainage system can absorb fluid. While the wound is healing some fluid may drain directly through the wound. Close evaluation by your plastic surgeon and good hygiene are essential parts of post operative care.
