Breast Lift 4 weeks post op

This is not normal.  You should not have drainage at 4 weeks post op.  Follow up with your Plastic Surgeon as soon as possible to avoid infection and healing complications.

Breast lift and no drains and drainage

+1

At one month it is unusual for there to be drainage. This may represent a fluid collection or infection,. Best to be seen in person and evaluated.

Drainage One Month after Mastopexy

Persistent drainage at one month would not be described as "normal".  A persistent seroma or fluid collection could be the cause but would be exceedingly unusual.  More common, would be a reaction the the dissolving suture material which is usually self limited.  I would not be overly concerned, but would recommend contacting your plastic surgeon and would discuss your concerns here. Good luck.

I am not sure I understand your question. Without photos, it is hard to make any sort of suggestion, except to ask this of your surgeon.  All the best.
