After your tummy tuck procedure, you’ll need to undergo a healing period. Part of your tummy tuck recovery will involve the use of drains.
Drains – tubes used to remove excess fluids from the tissues – will be inserted into the area at the end of your tummy tuck surgery. These drains reduce the likelihood of medical complications called hematomas and seromas.
Around one to two weeks into your tummy tuck recovery, your drains will no longer be necessary and will be taken out.
Thanks to board-certified plastic surgeons Doctors Calvin Peters and Kendall Peters, your tummy tuck recovery will be as easy and convenient as possible. These skilled physicians will give you the information you’ll need for a quick healing process. To arrange a tummy tuck consultation, contact our office today.
