Extremely High Drainage
1000 cc a day of drainage is extremely high from your drains and they should have not been removed. I typically wait to the drainage is consistently below 25 cc day before removing it. You should revisit this issue with you PS immediately concerning ongoing management of your drainage.

Ask a doctor
Drains putting out 1000 cc's a day
would unlikely be removed by any well trained surgeon... and the search would go on as to why it was that high as its beyond exceptional.
if that is truly the amount of drainage your abdomen will be blowing up like a balloon. my guess is there is a typing error
Still draining 1000cc of fluid
If you are draining that much, check with your PS. This amount does not make sense and should be addressed. If that amount is accurate, you should have drains placed !
If you are draining 10 cc per day, you are likely OK. However if it was 100 cc per day, then you are very likely to form a seroma, or a fluid collection under the skin. Make sure your plastic surgeon sees you in follow up so this can be addressed. Depending on the scenario, either replacement of a drain, or serial aspirations (twice per week) until the fluid output drops off to a safe level (usually < 30 ml per day per drain).
1000cc is an unusual amount to drain. Did you mean 10 cc or 100cc? I would recommend that you have close followup with your PS to determine the best course of action.
