The Benefits of Liposuction or a Tummy Tuck Without the Hassle of Drains

When coupled with a tummy tuck procedure, liposuction offers a safe and effective way to shape your midsection into the perfectly sculpted and toned look you want.

Many patients, however, have delayed or completely put off liposuction because of the recovery process. They believe it will further interfere with their daily life before they see the final results. While the recovery from liposuction comes with just mild discomfort or pain, some patients require drains to be placed below the skin to help prevent fluid build-up.

As the first surgeon in New York to offer the Tubeless Tuck, Dr. Shridharani can provide you with the same great result of liposuction and a tummy tuck, with a much more accessible and convenient recovery. By using dissolvable stitches placed in key areas, Dr. Shridharani can close off all of the space to prevent the fluid build-up that previously required drains.

Along with making for a much easier recovery, there are other significant benefits to not using drains during and after a tummy tuck procedure. Many patients who need the drains placed report significant discomfort and pain as the hanging tubes pull on the skin. Additionally, since the drains must be emptied multiple times daily, they can be very inconvenient.

Since the ports are also an open pathway through the skin, they increase the risk of serious infections, including MRSA. Although many people keep the port clean enough to avoid serious complications, the risk remains. Not having a port significantly decreases the chance of infections and other complications.

If you have been delaying or putting off liposuction or a tummy tuck procedure, contact Dr. Shridharani to see how a Tubeless Tuck can provide you with a great sculpted and toned look, with a much easier recovery than before. Call the office at 212-508-0000, or visit to schedule a consultation.
