We are looking for candidates for a new study here at Marina Plastic Surgery. We’ve been selected by Cohera Medical, lnc. as one of five plastic surgery centers in the U.S. to participate in a national clinical research trial to test an experimental product – a tissue glue – that may aid in wound closure following abdominoplasty surgery www.coheramedical.com/products/tissuglu/patient_information.
The “tummy tuck” surgery www.losangelestummytuck.com as it is commonly called will be performed by either by me or Dr. Michelle Spring at our fully accredited surgical center. Financial consideration will be made for qualified participants.
Typical tummy tuck patients are frustrated that they cannot lose that last hanging flabby skin. No creams will lift lax tummy skin, no amount of crunches will tighten loose stomach muscles, and even the healthiest diet will not be able to reduce certain fat deposits along the abdominal wall. Only a tummy tuck can help address this problem area sufficiently.
We are looking for specific types of patients who fit the study qualifications. These qualifications include:
• 18 years of age or older
• General good health
• Not pregnant or nursing
• No previous abdominoplasty
• Agree to not schedule any additional elective surgeries involving an incision to the abdomen until your study participation is complete
• Are available for follow up evaluations for three months following surgery
During the initial qualifying consultation, we will review your medical history. Photos will be taken and you should bring a list of medications, vitamins and herbal supplements that you take.
