Jackson Pratt after Hematoma prevent post-op swelling?

The drain will be removing serous fluid which can accumulate as a result of inflammation/trauma. The colour will be pink/purple due to trace amounts of blood. Talk with your Plastic Surgeon about your concerns and instructions for healing.
All the best
Breast augmentation - did drain prevent swelling?
I am sorry you had hematomas after your breast augmentation -
But glad they were properly treated.
Drains can reduce swelling to some extent - but it is possible less surgery was needed at the 3rd procedure.
Glad you are healing well now.
Always see a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon.
