Lovenox after tummy tuck
The risk of DVT after tummy tuck is a real risk, and the key is prevention. For all, we use sequential conpression and stockings. Lovenox can reduce the risk, and there are methods to score patients for DVT risk, and if the number is right then Lovenox is prescribed. Lovenox is started by injection 12 hours after the procedure, and continued daily for five days, and is easy to self administer with instruction. In our practice overnight stay is not common.
