Services & Procedures
As women age and particularly women who have experienced childbirth, abdominal muscles and skin change. They often stretch and distort past the point where diet and exercise can help. For women who want their flat tummies back, an abdominoplasty or tummy tuck has typically been the best method of achieving this. And though extremely effective, it does have one of the longer and more uncomfortable recoveries of any cosmetic procedure.
But now, the Drainless Tummy Tuck dramatically reduces a patient’s recovery time and post op pain. Dr. Pedersen uses the newest techniques for performing this type of Tummy Tuck. A “TAP” (or Transversus Abdominus Plane) is an injection of local anesthetic that provides pain control for several days following your Tummy Tuck surgery.
In addition, a new suturing technique allows Dr. Pedersen to forgo using a drain. This new suturing technique reduces the chance of a buildup of fluid following surgery which means no drain is necessary allowing more movement by the patient and much faster and less painful healing.
