I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you make an appointment to see your surgeon so he/she can evaluate you and recommend the most appropriate treatment plan 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!

Drainage 3 months after full lift and implant
It sounds to me that like you have developed an infection and that your implant may become exposed very soon. Please go see your plastic surgeon tomorrow.

Thank you for sharing your question and photographs. Unfortunately it appears that you have developed an infection with impending breast implant exposure. You need to see your surgeon for an in-person evaluation and treatment discussion. This likely will require implant removal and antibiotic administration. Best wishes.
Late drainage after breast lift
Your problem is likely due to a self dissolving suture that has not fully healed.
See your plastic surgeon to remedy this; it should be straightforward.
I am very concerned you have an infection. You are exhibiting sign of an infection with redness, drainage and breakdown of your incision. You need an appointment with your surgeon ASAP.
