So long the discharge is very small and decreasing,and there in no  redness,no pain and no fever probably it may settle by itself .Main concern is infection.Your best course is to go back to your operating surgeon as soon as possiblle.

I recommend you see your plastic surgeon and let him/her examine you. You may be having a dissolvable suture expressing itself out, but it is always best to be checked.
