I Am 9 Days Post-op from a Breast Reduction and I Still Have Lots of Drainage. Is This Normal? (photo)

My surgeon does not use drains. My breast are very swollen and I have to change dressings 3 or 4 times a day. Is this okay. I called two days ago and they said it was normal, but there seems to be more every day from the bottom incision. What should I do? If anything.
