Abdominoplasty is becoming increasingly more common, with seroma being the most frequent complication. Suction drains are used very often as a method to prevent seroma formation, and it has been suggested that techniques using Scarpa fascia preservation and closed-suction drains have lower seroma rates than other approaches. However few studies have addressed parameters that may affect drain efficiency. A prospective comparative study was conducted to determine if applying 2 or 3 closed-suction drains, after an abdominoplasty with Scarpa fascia preservation, has any effect on several outcomes.
