Is anyone GLAD they had drains, or feel like there was a benefit to them?

I finally found a surgeon who takes my insurance and does the caliber of work I expect (yay!) but she is a real stickler about drains. She told me people hate them, but she thinks they are necessary to prevent the low risk of hematoma. So far all I have heard is that drains are by far the worst part of the recovery if you have them, and I am thinking this alone might be enough to make me pass on her. Has anyone had a positive experience with drains? Does anyone feel like they helped them in any way towards their recovery?
