Drains are soft rubber tubes that remove extra fluid from the operative site into a special suction reservoir. A soft rubber tube with holes sits inside the wound and connects by another soft tube to a reservoir. Fluid is removed by the suction of the reservoir bulb. Having a drain minimizes fluid collection that otherwise might need to be removed.

Jackson Pratt drain tube manages drainage in many operations but may not be needed in tumescent tummy tuck.

Drains come in different sizes, shapes, and have different names. This Jackson Pratt suction bulb removes extra fluid when compressed and the small drainage valve is closed. Extra fluid is removed through this port.

Each case must be individually evaluated during surgery.

Placement of drains to collect drainage in abdominoplasty.Having drains in place are better than needing to remove extra fluids with a syringe and needle through the skin after surgery. Drains are placed just above the fascia / muscle under the flaps.

Tumescent tummy tuck may not need drains for drainageDesigning the operation to minimize excess fluids so that drains are not needed means increased comfort for the patient, something less to manage after surgery, and no drain exit point through the skin.
