Nipple discharge post surgery. Is this residual blood from the hematoma?

Thank you for the question. Your explanation could be accurate. If you have ongoing concerns I recommend that you ask your Plastic Surgeon to examine you in order to rule out any problems.

Hello and thank you for your question.
What I can tell from the description you provided, I would agree with you that this discharge is most likely left over blood from the hematoma that is working its way out of the body. If this behavior stops very soon and there are no other symptoms, I would not be worried. On the other hand it is never a bad idea to go and be examined by your own plastic surgeon so that he/she can closely see whats going on and give you the green light not to be nervous about your recovery. I wish you the best of luck.
