Can anybody share their experience with TissuGlu for tummy tuck please?

There are many things that are marketed for a host of different purposes.  I have found no use for this.

Tummy tuck - use of TissuGlu?

Thank you for asking about your tummy tuck.
  • TissueGlu is an FDA approved sealant to keep the skin stuck down after a tummy tuck.
  • I personally have not found any need for it - and it does increase the patient's cost.
  • Quilting sutures have worked as well for me - 
  • Discuss the need for this with your own plastic surgeon.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon. Best wishes  - Elizabeth Morgan MD PHD FACS
