Discharge after breast reduction

I recommend that you see your plastic surgeon in followup to rule out infection and to determine whether this was a superficial reaction or a complication of the surgery. Best of luck.

Unfortunately, only your plastic surgeon is in the position to advise you whether the discharge you have experienced is okay or whether you are experiencing a complication. Please follow up with him/her for evaluation.
