Drainage post-op

Your breasts should not be draining at this point. Definitely go back and see your plastic surgeon immediately.

I am certain your surgeon would be most interested in seeing you soon. He will probably send a culture of the fluid to the lab at that time. Good luck.

No, I would be concerned about a seroma or infection both may need operative intervention given that you have a foreign body in your body
