Slimmer Body/Better Recovery

Drainless Tummy Tuck Technique

In order to avoid fluid buildup from occurring between the layers of skin and muscles in the abdomen, the space between them that forms when they are separated during surgery will not to be sealed. This can be done through different methods. Special dissolvable sutures can be used to stick the layers of tissue together, or a special surgical adhesive can be applied. Both methods prevent fluid buildup form occurring between the layers of skin and muscle.

Drainless Versus Traditional

Why are Drains Used After a Traditional Tummy Tuck?

A traditional tummy tuck is designed to address a number of issues that can make it impossible to attain a stomach that looks flat, tight, and toned. A traditional tummy tuck involves removing excess loose abdominal tissue, tightening loose abdominal muscles, removing excess pockets of fat, and tightening the remaining abdominal tissue.

During a traditional tummy tuck, the layers of skin, fat are separated from the layer of abdominal muscles. Once the excess tissue is removed, the incision is tightly sutured closed, but the skin and fat are no longer stuck to the muscle layer. As the separated layers rub together, fluid builds up in the space between them. This fluid then needs to be drained form the area. Over time, the layers begin to heal and stick together again which prevents fluid buildup (seroma) from occurring

About the Drainless Tummy Tuck process.

Conveniently located to serve Toronto and Whitby

At Avenue Plastic Surgery, we offer a drainless tummy tuck for both men and women in Toronto and Whitby who want a flatter and more toned-looking stomach. This approach to the tummy tuck procedure involves precise execution to eliminate the need for drains to be placed around the abdomen during the recovery process.

Benefits of a Drainless Tummy Tuck

A drainless tummy tuck makes the recovery period much more comfortable as it avoids the uncomfortable process of having to drains placed in the abdomen and having fluid drained from the abdomen periodically. It also reduces the risk of seroma which can still occur even if drains are used. Suturing the layers of skin and muscles together also helps with the healing process which makes the recovery period shorter.

Recovering from a Drainless Tummy Tuck

A compression garment will need to be worn during the recovery period to help manage swelling and aid in the recovery process. The garment will need to be worn for a few weeks. You will need to rest and avoid physical and strenuous activities for around one to two weeks, though light activity can be resumed after just one week.

I recently had a tummy tuck and breast lift (3 months ago) with Dr.Golger and do not remember the last time I felt so good about myself! I overheard my daughter telling her boyfriend “my mom is like a pig in sh*t since she had her surgery but she keeps wearing my clothes”. Ha! Well if thats the worst she’s saying…I’ll take it! Thank you from the bottom of my heart! I (obviously) couldn’t have done it without you. That being said…I 100% recommend Dr. Golger!
