Tummy Tucks Explained

  • Drainless Tummy Tuck
  • Liposuction Tummy Tuck
  • Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck
  • Brazilian Tummy Tuck

Drainless Tummy Tuck

During some tummy tuck procedures, drains are temporarily placed through small incisions to stop fluid build-up between skin and muscle following the procedure. To proceed drainless, doctors do the surgery using a progressive suture method. This is a quilting technique that secures the skin on the abdomen to the underlying layers of tissue and creates a bond that reduces fluid build-up.

This is not a popular procedure as it requires more time and is potentially riskier. Recovery time is one to two weeks, and you will need to wear a compressed garment throughout the healing process.

Liposuction Tummy Tuck

Liposuction is a single procedure that does not remove all fat but contours the body by removing pockets of fat. This is commonly done to reap the benefits of a tummy tuck and address fat simultaneously with tightening skin

Non-Surgical Tummy Tuck

Non-surgical tummy tuck also gets rid of pockets of fat on the stomach that diet and exercise do nothing for. It’s the ideal alternative to liposuction and perfect for women who gave birth and have belly pouches. It’s the newest body fat dissolver injection on the market called DESOBODY. The injection removes excess fat, slims down the stomach, and the result is permanent with proper diet and care

It’s FDA approved, less invasive, less expensive, quicker, and more cost-effective, and leaves no scars. It will not tighten your skin or muscle, however. The experts advise not to consume alcohol or take Ibuprofen 24 hours before your appointment.

Keep close dialogue with your doctor to see if the non-surgical is for you.

The Brazilian Tummy Tuck

The Brazilian tummy tuck is the new method on the market with the same features as the regular Abdominoplasty with a marked difference. It goes much further and includes intense liposuction of the abdominal wall. If the abdominal muscles

spread out of proportion, the Brazilian tuck closes them and tightens them. It also closes the deep muscle layers and skin. It’s major surgery, and you will wear an abdominal binder for six weeks. Your doctor will guide you from the process to recovery

Patients should research extensively to discover their best options when considering a tummy tuck. And always seek out qualified doctors who are knowledgeable in the field.
