Possible seroma after hematoma? (photos)

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
A seroma is a collection of serous fluid around your implants. The JP drain left by your surgeon is to drain that fluid and not allow it to accumulate. In the beginning, it always has the color your describe. The more comes out on the drain, the less likely it accumulates around your implants.
Discuss further with your surgeon but I would not be worried about a seroma as long as the drain is in.
