Lakeview Surgery Centre in Barrie, Ontario which is north of Toronto, is offering a new tummy tuck protocol with improved rate of recovery and reduce scarring.
“Abdominoplasty is typically a more invasive cosmetic procedure that can involve drains, an extensive scar and long recovery period. In addition, we often hear from people that drains are the worst part of the procedure, so I've worked to make them unnecessary,” Dr. Emad Guirguis, head cosmetic surgeon on the centre states. “I modified the traditional form of abdominoplasty to make it less traumatic to the patient, thereby improving recovery time and scarring. I also concentrated on improving the results, making them more natural in appearance.”
The NaturalTuck is a form of tummy tuck, technically referred to as abdominoplasty. It involves a number of advanced surgical techniques:
Drains are typically used to get rid of excess fluids that can build up following surgery. However, to prevent the use of drains, tissues are repositioned and an advanced suturing technique is used to eliminate spaces where excess fluids may develop (that could lead to complications). As a result, patients undergoing the NaturalTuck do not need drains following surgery.
