DRAINING INCISION SITE AFTER BAM
The drainage looks minimal but could be a sign of a deeper problem. If it gradually diminishes, it should be fine. If it increases or is accompanied by redness, swelling, or pain, you should see your surgeon immediately. Your surgeon is always the best one to consult with any issue because they know the history and any potential issues with the tissue he/she may have encountered. The darkness of the incision should at least partly resolve over time. This can be treated with laser or removed simply under local anesthesia.

Thank you for your question. Remember, it is best to be seen in person by a double-board-certified plastic surgeon for precise diagnosis and treatment.
Healing incision after hematoma
The photo is a bit dark . Nothing replaces an in person exam so go in and ask your surgeon in person. He/she is best equipped to give you an opinion based on an exam. Best wishes.

Hello and thank you for your question. I am sorry to hear about your post-surgical course thus far. Pictures on an online forum like this are unreliable when making a clinical decision. I would strongly suggest you seek an evaluation by a surgeon for a more reliable perspective.
