I had an extended TT with no Lipo or Muscle repair. I spent the night in the clinic. My drain was removed 1 day after my TT. Is this not to quick ???

Surgeons each have a standard for drain removal. Some use no drains with a TT. My particular standard is less than 30 cc a day. Others use differing amounts of drainage, others use a fixed number of days. If you have a question like this, it is best addressed to the surgeon.

Best wishes for an uneventful recovery.
