Under the arms after MiraDry.
Hi and thanks for this question. I believe that you're leaking the numbing solution that is used to keep you comfortable during the procedure. This should stop completely by the next morning if not later today. Burning sensations, swelling, tightness and discomfort are all normal for a time period after MiraDry. If you continue to become concerned please call you physician. See the links below for additional information on MiraDry. Best wishes always, Dr. ALDO
It is common for the tumescent anesthesia to drain in the first 6 hours after miraDry procedure. Late drainage, meaning more than 3 days after the procedure is more concerning. it is a rare occurrence.

Fluid leakage post MiraDry is not normal. You should return to your physician for evaluation.
Fluid from the armpit
Leaking fluid after treatment
If your doctor used a tumescent technique to numb your armpit area prior to the miraDry treatment, it may be normal to have a small amount of fluid leak out from the injection sites. This usually happens immediately after injection, before the actual treatment, and most patients do not notice much more after the procedure is completed in the office.
If you are still experiencing a significant amount of fluid coming out of your armpit, give your doctor a call to get everything checked out in person.
Take care,Dr. Lim
