See your surgeon for accurate diagnosis

Please see your surgeon as soon as possible about this. You should not have liquid coming out of your breast three months after your surgery. Best of luck.

If you have persistent drainage 3 months after a breast augmentation, it is not a good sign.  You should see your surgeon immediately.

Drainage after breast implants is a dangerous sign

After breast augmenation the incision sites should remain very clean and dry. If you have developed drainage of any kind after the signs are ominous as an infection can rapidly develop. Cover the area with a clean dressing and get in to see your surgeon immediately.

Thank you for the question.

It would be in your best interest to be examined by your plastic surgeon;  there is not enough information in your description to give you meaningful advice.

Best wishes.
