I am still draining now 3 weeks and continue to fill inner thighs. Advised to use wicks until it stops. What to do? Tubes?

Post Liposuction Irregularities, Swelling -- Try Massage, Exilis Ultra/Cellutone or Venus Legacy With Your Compression

I suggest seeing an expert or speaking to your physician, draining can occur for many weeks and maybe you have a seroma that needs treatment, or need better compression.  Massage and RF treatments like venus legacy or exilis are important at this time.  Best, Dr. Emer.

Thank you for your question. I need more information like what surgery was done, before I comment . Please talk to your PS.

I appreciate your question. I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon as every surgeon has their own respective post op protocol for his/her patients.  Your surgeon is your best resource as he/she is most familiar with your medical history and how you are healing at this time. The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam. Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery. Best of luck!
