We are pleased to announce the publication of one of the largest, single practice series of abdominoplasties (tummy tucks) with the use of Progressive Tension Sutures (PTS). PTS was originated by Drs. Pollock and first described and published in 2000. This new article proves the ease, safety and effectiveness of this procedure which eliminates postoperative drains, bent posture, and complications. PTS procedure benefits patients and surgeons:
- Marked reduction in the incidence of complications – fluid collections, wound healing problems, blood clots, etc.
- Improved cosmetic results, quality of scars, natural appearance of the navel, etc.
- Much easier recovery for the patient: NO drains to deal with: early resumption of upright posture – immediately; elimination of complications, etc.
The article is titled: “Progressive Tension Sutures in Abdominoplasty: A Review of 597 Consecutive Cases” and is written by Drs. Todd A. Pollock and Harlan Pollock. It was published in Aesthetic Surgery Journal on 29 June 2012. Read the abstract to this article.
