Tummy tuck. NO DRAIN, drainless tummy tuck

Tummy tuck without the use of drains is a novel concept which involves modifications to the classic tummy tuck procedure. It is not simply the same operation just without the use of drains. One of the modifications involves placing quilting sutures. While this is a widely used technique it too has some shortcomings. First, it can lengthen the duration of the surgery. Second it may result in some abdominal contour irregularities which if present you hope will resolve with massage and lastly it may be operator dependent.
Our technique involves keeping Scarpa’s fascia at the abdominal wall and thus the lymphatic system is preserved and drains into the groin lymph nodes. Thus this technique requires a level of sophistication and technique experience to perform. It was pioneered by the Brazilian plastic surgeons and has been reported many times in the literature.
