If stubborn abdominal fat or excess skin has you struggling to reach your body contouring goals, chances are you have considered a tummy tuck or liposuction. If you have taken the time to research these procedures, you have undoubtedly found that when it comes to tummy tucks and lipo, there are several options to improve your body contour.
Many people thinking about a tummy tuck are interested in a “drain-free” option for an easier, cleaner recovery. The exclusive C.L.A.S.S.™ tummy tuck Dr. Campanile performs offers a drain-free approach and much more. Let’s take a more detailed look at the differences between the C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck and a traditional tummy tuck.
The Traditional Tummy Tuck
A traditional tummy tuck, or abdominoplasty, addresses loose skin in the abdominal area while also repairing abdominal muscles that have become separated due to weight gain or pregnancy. While this can tighten up and tone the abdominal area, a traditional tummy tuck alone is not able to address stubborn pockets of fat that help define your abdominal curves. In addition, a traditional tummy tuck requires the placement of post-surgical drains in order to prevent excess fluid build-up during recovery. These drains can extend your recovery time and make recovery less comfortable.
Dr. Campanile’s Exclusive C.L.A.S.S. Tummy Tuck
Developed by board-certified plastic surgeon Dr. Francesco Campanile, the C.L.A.S.S. tummy tuck not only eliminates the need for a post-surgical drain, but also combines the benefits of a tummy tuck and liposuction.
C.L.A.S.S stands for Combined Lipo-Abdominoplasty Sculpting and Shaping. It begins with liposuction designed to remove those stubborn pockets of fat before tightening with the tummy tuck, allowing Dr. Campanile to create much more comprehensive contouring results.
The C.L.A.S.S. procedure also uses a unique quilting technique to minimize the available space for post-surgical fluid accumulation, meaning there is no need for drains during your recovery. In addition to making your recovery much easier, this option also reduces the tension on your incision area, often leading to a much better final scar appearance.
