I’m seeing a growing trend in the popularity of my C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck here in Denver. I find this interesting, because of course there is always the option for a traditional tummy tuck from many other local surgeons. What are the benefits to the C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck which keep patients requesting the procedure? Could this be the beginning of a larger shift away from traditional tummy tucks as we know them?
Why C.L.A.S.S. Is Different
I believe the reason the C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck is gaining popularity is due to two primary differences in the procedures: First, that liposuction is more successfully included, and secondly, that the recovery process is more comfortable and doesn’t require surgical drains.
The incorporation of liposuction allows C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck patients to achieve more finely sculpted results than through a tummy tuck alone. I feel this fits in with the overall growing trend in cosmetic surgery toward more natural-looking results.
And who wouldn’t prefer a recovery without surgical drains, given the choice? During this procedure, blood flow isn’t as compromised, so my patients enjoy a faster and easier recovery time.
A Growing Trend
With the combination of superior results and less complicated recovery, it’s really no mystery that I’ve seen an increase in the number of C.L.A.S.S. tummy tucks I’ve performed recently. This may be the beginning of a growing trend for cosmetic surgeons everywhere to more finely hone procedures to what will most benefit the patients.
