The medical field has seen many improvements over the last 10 years. But few specialties have progressed as much in that time as plastic surgery.
From tummy tuck recovery without drains to new forms of non-invasive body contouring, the last decade has made plastic surgery more precise, more comfortable and easier to get. Here are just a few plastic surgery trends that have helped reshape the field.
Drainless Tummy Tucks
Years ago, standard tummy tuck recovery included the use of drains to reduce the unwanted buildup of fluid between the skin and underlying muscles. While drains were effective at doing their job, they were also cumbersome, limited mobility and increased the potential risks for scarring and infection.
Today, plastic surgeons use surgical techniques that help keep the skin and muscles together, which in turn, eliminates the space available for fluid to accumulate. Recovery without drains often results in faster healing times.

Dr. Campanile’s innovative C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck combines liposuction and multiple layers of sutures to create a smoother, tighter contour without the use of drains.
Fat Transfer Achieves Natural Results
In the past, plastic surgery focused on fat removal but didn’t really do much with the fat once it was removed. Now, plastic surgeons can utilize that unwanted fat to transform the body and face. By purifying the removed fat as part of a body contouring procedure, surgeons can augment the breasts, bottom, cheeks and more.
Non-Surgical Body Contouring
Body contouring isn’t just surgery anymore. Now, non-surgical options allow people to transform their look on their lunch break. Procedures such as VelaShape™ III can make a significant difference in your silhouette without the need for time off from work to recover. Although results take time to develop, skipping the recovery period associated with surgery is often worth it.
