Post Op Drains
Your Plastic Surgeon will want to see that you are draining a set, minimal amount consistently before removing. Times for this will vary and depend on your body and serous fluid output. I recommend that you follow up with your Plastic Surgeon to ask specific questions as they know your situation the best.

We don't like to put drains in unless absolutely necessary. I never feel bad placing drains if I deem necessary.
