A surgical site infection in plastic surgery can not only give a suboptimal aesthetic outcome, but it can also impair psychosocial well-being, delay hospital discharge, and lead to readmission and further surgery.¹
3M™ Prevena™ Therapy is indicated by FDA to aid in reducing the incidence of seroma and surgical site infections in patients at high risk for infection with Class I and Class II wounds.* By working to help protect incisions from postoperative complications, Prevena Therapy helps protect patients, surgeons, staff, practices, and hospitals from potential consequences through low-touch care.

Prevena Therapy focuses on managing the environment of closed surgical incisions to help reduce the risk of surgical site complications, such as superficial SSIs in patients at high risk for post-operative infections* helping physicians and facilities reduce the associated costs and burden that comes with them.
Prevena Restor Therapy was developed to allow clinicians to manage the environment of closed incisions and the surrounding soft tissue with expanded dressing coverage and up to 14 days of therapy (Dressing change required after 7 days).
3M™ Prevena Restor™ Dressing delivers therapy to the incision and surrounding soft tissue envelope helping to optimize post-operative recovery.

3M™ Prevena™ 125 and 3M™ Prevena™ Plus 125 Therapy Units manage the environment of closed surgical incisions and remove fluid away from the surgical incision via the application of -125mmHg continuous negative pressure. When used with legally marketed compatible dressings, Prevena 125 and Prevena Plus 125 Therapy Units are intended to aid in reducing the incidence of seroma and, in patients at high risk for post-operative infections, aid in reducing the incidence of superficial surgical site infection in Class I and II wounds.
*The effectiveness of Prevena Therapy in reducing the incidence of SSIs and seroma in all surgical procedures and populations has not been demonstrated. See full indications for use and limitations at myKCI.com
