Tummy tuck: Who does an awake tummy tuck?
Doctor Answers 3
Thanks for the question. I perform drainless tummy tucks whenever I can, as long as I feel you wouldn't have a post-operative fluid collection. However, I would not perform this operation without general anesthesia.
"awake" tummy tuck
Hi, this is a big operation, and should be done under anaesthetic. I don't think it is appropriate, safe or comfortable for you to have it one "awake".
