Is Fat in a JP Drain Normal After Tummy Tuck and Liposuction?
I am postoperative day 5 from a full tt and thigh liposuction. I have 2 drains in place which had been draining serosanginous fluid, but one drain now has some stringy white particles in it. I have no fever and the abdominal pain is improving every day. After calling my surgeon he feels this is a small amount of residual fat and is not concerned. Is this common?
