Using TissuGlu means most patients are able to resume their regular daily activities more quickly, including showering, driving, and working.”
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) June 21, 2017
Beverly Hills Physicians, a Los Angeles Area health and beauty medical group, is now offering eligible patients a tummy tuck (abdominoplasty) procedure without the need for drains during the post-operative recovery period. The medical group notes that TissuGlu Surgical Adhesive binds tissues more closely together than a standard suture. The result is that, in a majority of cases, fluids do not collect excessively near the incision site and may be removed without drains via the body’s ordinary natural processes, says the clinic.
Beverly Hills Physicians notes that tummy tucks, which remove the excess skin and fatty tissue that may appear around the midsection due to a weight loss or following a pregnancy, are one of the most popular plastic surgeries at their offices. The clinic notes that, while patients report being delighted with their tummy tuck results, they are much less happy about the need for the small, plastic drains during a period following the surgery that may last as long as three weeks. Patients may often complain about the need to regularly measure and empty the drains, that they are hard to conceal underneath clothing, that they are somewhat uncomfortable, and can even make sleeping difficult.
The medical group adds that their patients not only benefit in terms of avoiding inconvenience and discomfort, studies have also shown that drainless tummy tuck patients are able to resume their regular daily activities more quickly, including showering, driving, and working. The clinic adds that, while a minority of patients may need some assistance with fluid management following a procedure, roughly 75 percent of patients who received the TissuGlu surgical adhesive need no additional help regarding fluids.
Beverly Hills Physicians notes that the majority of patients who qualify for a tummy tuck also are candidates for TissuGlu. The medical group adds that the exceptions may include people with allergies to urethane-based products and those containing isocyanate, patients with body mass indexes over 28 or who are getting a tummy tuck following an extremely large weight loss, and patients who have used TissuGlu previously. (The product has not yet been tested for repeated usage.) They add that the way for patients to find out whether or not a tummy tuck with TissuGlu is appropriate in their case is to schedule a consultation with a Beverly Hills Physicians plastic surgeon.
