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 that 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.
