I had a tummy tuck on May 1 and afterwards, they took out my drain. I had it for 2 weeks. Why am I still draining?

- A lot depends on how much fluid you are leaking -
- If it is a few drops, that is fine.
- If you are draining a lot, you may have a seroma, an infection or both.
- Contact your plastic surgeon to discuss what is going on and arrange to be seen at the next opportunity.
Hope you find this information helpful. Best wishes.
