Drainage After Breast Surgery
Drainage after any operation is normal and can vary side to side. Your doctor will determine what is best to do. Unfortunately, there is nothing in your control but to be patient.
Everyone drains a different amount. It really depends upon the procedure and the individual. It is best to follow closely with your surgeon. Good luck.
That is a lot of drainage assuming this was a breast augmentation and not something more complex. Without photos or examination, I would certainly yield to your surgeon's judgement here, and stay in close contact until this is resolved.
All the best.
Without knowing what kind of surgery you had, it's difficult to answer your questions. Overall, I would trust what your surgeon tells you vs. any advice you would get online.
In breast augmentation I have chosen to spend time reviewing
photographs with patients to fully understand their expectation of size and
shape. Many times this simply raises
more questions. I will make measurements
and use the implant guides to allow the patient to understand exactly the sizes
that are reasonable for their body type and measurements.
