Is clear leakage from nipple after breast augmentation normal?
Doctor Answers 6
This could be related to stimulation of the milk glands, or serous fluid. If discharge is accompanied by redness/pain/swelling, that will be more of a concern. I recommend that you share your concerns with your Plastic Surgeon to rule out anything more serious.

Draining Post Breast Augmentation
It may be best to see your surgeon for advice. But, if my patients have concerns that their #healing or pain are unusual, it is important for them to call the office and discuss these concerns or come in to be examined.
This is not too uncommon and represents fluid production by the glands. The act of massaging your breasts may even be stimulating its production. Since implant massage is unnecessary, you should stop. Soon your discharge will stop too.
Best of luck!

Clear fluid after breast augmentation
Best would be to discuss with surgeon. It may be milk, but usually is not clear and has whitish color to it. If clear, maybe saline leak, but you will see decrease in size. Maybe seroma or simply serous fluid, but generally too early. . There are many possibilities but they are generally benign and your surgeon should easily be able to guide you.
