Cosmetic Surgery and Tummy Tucks in Sacramento Using the Quill Suture for Incision Closure

Posted by Dr. Perry in Abdominoplasty

Some exciting new changes in abdominoplasty and tummy tucks have been occurring across the country and in Sacramento California in particular with regards to incision closure. Quill suture (modeled after the porcupine’s barbed quill) has been released by the FDA for incision closure. It is an absorbable monofilament suture. What is so great about the suture is that physicians no longer need knots to secure the incision. Without knots we are seeing a lot less suture abscess or suture spitting. Because of the the abdominoplasty incisions seem to be healing much sooner without the troublesome suture abscesses. The suture technique has also decreased the operative time for your safety and has allowed for decreased operative costs secondarily. The new suture techniques are being used at Chrysalis Cosmetics serving Folsom, El Dorado Hills, Roseville and Stockton California. Plastic and Cosmetic surgery are constantly evolving and being made available to more and more people across the Sacramento valley and Northern California.

Tummy tucks are often combined with liposuction of the flanks and abdomen using the Vaser Liposelection Method. For your comfort and safety be sure to visit a plastic surgery center that is fully accredited such as Chrysalis Cosmetics and a surgeon that is Board Certified. We look forward to helping you.
