Seroma vs Hematoma drainage. Any suggestions? (photos)

This drain is inserted to remove serous fluid which is produced by your body as part of the natural, inflammatory response. a small amount of blood in that fluid will colour it red/pink. It is best that you have your Plastic Surgeon evaluate your drainage and answer your questions as they know your situation the best.
