Drains Used for PAL & Laser Lipo Incision Sites?
Hello. I am a healthy, 29 year old male at my ideal weight and about a week ago I underwent IV sedated, tumescent PAL & Laser liposuction of my abdominal area, flanks, and chest. My plastic surgeon sealed the incision sites. I have regularly read that incision sites are typically left open to drain to help recovery. Why would my "board certified" plastic surgeon, who trains other surgeons, choose to seal the incisions sites? I would rather have a few days of messy drainage and a more comfortable recovery than a comparatively cleaner but longer, uncomfortable recovery.
