Our Dr. Todd A. Pollock helped invent the Progressive Tension Sutures – or, PTS – which is used in abdominoplasties (or tummy tucks).
The PTS procedure greatly simplifies an abdominoplasty, significantly reduces surgical complications, improves patients’ results, and shortens convalescence. The PTS procedure is also known as a No-Drain Tummy Tuck as a result: for the patient this means an immediate improvement on the quality of life after the abdominoplasty as there are no drains needed. (Other abdominoplasty procedures without PTS means the patient has to have a hunched-over posture while the drain is in place.)
At North Dallas Plastic Surgery (NDPS) this technique has been used over the past 30 years and the results have been reliable and long-lasting.

At North Dallas Plastic Surgery (NDPS) we fill in details on the various surgical procedures and add our opinions on each. When considering a patient for body contouring we assess three aspects: their Skin, Fat, and Muscle.
When talking with a prospective patient we detail the technique we developed to improve the safety and aesthetics of body contouring that we call Progressive Tension Sutures (PTS) ».
