A tummy tuck is a surgical procedure that removes excess skin and fat around the stomach while tightening the abdominal wall. Typically, drains are worn following the procedure to secrete fluids that build up during healing. A tummy tuck can also be performed without drains using the progressive tension suture method. This requires multiple sutures between the abdominal wall and the overlying skin and fat to restrict the accumulation of fluid. Doctors report less pain, a lower risk for a seroma, and a shorter healing time. However, this technique requires more time in the operating room and could possibly lead to indentations or irregularities.
