If you’re considering a tummy tuck, you may have heard of the no-drain technique. Until recently, all tummy tucks required the use of collection drains in order to remove fluid that accumulates beneath the skin after surgery. The drains, sutured to the skin, can cause some discomfort and limit mobility. Fortunately, there’s now more than one way to perform an abdominoplasty. A number of patients today choose the drain-free tummy tuck because of the three main benefits it offers.

  1. A More Comfortable Recovery

Women who choose to enhance their figure through breast augmentation might not realize that their implants may, over time, require maintenance.

Women with breast implants hoping to ensure natural-looking results as they age have a couple of options to achieve the breasts of their dreams.

How Aging Affects the Breasts

As we age, our skin changes. The body’s natural collagen production slows, leaving our skin more vulnerable to the effects of gravity. The aging process can result in skin that stretches or sags. The tissue surrounding breast implants can become thin after a span of years, leading to breasts that droop and lose their shape.
