Drainage After Liposuction
Drainage for a few days after liposuction is normal, but any concerns of too much drainage or particularly bloody drainage should be addressed with your plastic surgeon. Kenneth Hughes, MD Los Angeles, CA

Leakage can be normal after liposuction, but ask your doctor immediately
It is normal to leak bloody fluid from the incisions (port sites) after liposuction for a day or 2 (or more) after surgery, but you must see your surgeon to be certain you don't have a complication.
