As medical technology continues to advance at lightning speed, new and improved techniques for cosmetic surgery procedures emerge as well. One such advancement is the C.L.A.S.S.™ drain-free tummy tuck. This abdominoplasty technique offers a unique set of benefits and highlights just how outdated traditional tummy tucks can be.
A C.L.A.S.S.™ (Combined Lipo-Abdominoplasty Sculpting & Shaping) tummy tuck combines elements of a traditional tummy tuck with liposculpture and eliminates the need for post-surgical drains. These top three benefits make this technique truly stand out from more outdated tummy tuck techniques.
Reduced Risk of Fluid Buildup
During the C.L.A.S.S.™ drainless tummy tuck, Dr. Campanile uses a layered stitching technique to prevent fluid buildup within the abdominal cavity. During a traditional tummy tuck, post-surgical drains are used to get rid of fluid build up, though this poses a greater risk of infection and other complications.
An Enhanced Recovery Experience
You may recover more quickly from a C.L.A.S.S.™ tummy tuck than with traditional abdominoplasty.
Because you will not have a drain after your C.L.A.S.S.™ tummy tuck, you won’t have to worry about recording fluid amounts or emptying it during your recovery. This not only makes the recovery process much less complicated, but also more comfortable for you.
The combination of abdominoplasty and liposuction not only offers the removal and tightening of loose skin, but also the removal and sculpting of stubborn fat for more comprehensive final results than with a traditional tummy tuck alone.
