Default Another Opinion :D

Hi!

I thinks its great you are getting several opinions as its important to gather all the correct and educated information necessary. Plus like you said its really important that you like and feel comfortable with them. After all, whatever surgeon you pick will be the one that performs the tummy tuck and perhaps changes your life! One other option out there you might want to consider is Medical Tourism. Speaking from personal experience its an option that allows you to get the surgery done by board certified surgeons, save lots of money and maybe even get a nice vacation out of it. Plus you get to try something new by visiting a new culture! I know the whole concept might sound a bit intimidating but try goggling it and learning all about it. The best place to start in my opinion is looking up Clatonhillservices. I know they can offer free advice and have a great team!

Best Wishes!

Default Drains or no drains with tummy tuck?

I'm planning on having a tummy tuck soon, i've seen two different doctors who seem to be very good at what they do. One uses a different suturing tehnique that does not require having drains and does it as out patient. they other doctors does use drains after surgery and he requires one night stay at hospital. so confused dont know who to pick! i'm also planning on having a breast augmentation at the same time. I do like the doctor who will keep in the hospital for overnight observation and pain control, and on the other hand I love the other Doctors technique in not needing drains afterwards. Can someone please help me decide?

Thanks, Susy q
