Are you concerned about how you will conceal the surgical drains after surgery?

If so, please read my story. If you're an A-type personality, like me, simply click here but please come back!


I am new to the board. Five years ago I had a tummy tuck and suffered many complications.
Not only did I have surgical drains after my initial procedure, but as a result of many complications involving 2 additional surgeries, drains became an irritating reality in my daily life.

I did not want to leave the house. I had to wear baggy sweats to conceal the drains tucked not so discreetly in my grandma underwear! I looked frumpier then before the surgery!

Let’s face it, those of us with kids and jobs that don’t give us two weeks off do not have the luxury to stay in bed healing out of the public eye! There’s sports, school meetings, grocery shopping, etc., etc. Life goes one.

Things do happen for a reason though, I guess.

Shortly after my second surgery, I came up with an idea to conceal those unsightly drains. It is a waist pack designed to look like a regular fanny pack that hides the drain tubing, drains and also pain pumps. After I drew out the final proto-type, I bit the bullet and placed my first order from a manufacturing company. I wanted to help other woman struggling with this same undesirable aspect of recovery.

I found that not only could it secure ad conceal the drains during the day, but I wore the waist pack at night also to keep them out of the way when sleeping on my side. I also found that because of the poly material, I could wear it in the shower to hold the drains while I showered. Showering with drains was quite tricky prior to this solution. The material dries quickly after being wiped down- I had two on hand. Of course, you should consult with your surgeon about the product’s uses as with anything else.

If you are interested in finding out more, the product is offered on makemeheal.com and can be found under “healing devices” under Tummy Tuck and Breast Categories or, click here:

All my best to those of you with an upcoming procedure for a healthy and beautiful outcome!!
