One firm breast after augmentation

It is not normal for you to have a "hole that leaks" from your breast to start with. I'm not sure if I understand you correctly but you implied plastic surgeon told you to go somewhere else. Does that mean they feel as though you are healed or completely recovered? If you have fluid leaking from the breast, you may have a fluid collection around the implant that may need to be drained. The best advice I can give you is to return to your plastic surgeon and express your concerns and together come up with a plan.

I wish you well.
