Your concerns are important to discuss directly with your board certified plastic surgeon. He or she will appreciate the open communication and will want to help you. If you decide to seek a second opinion, consult with a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon in person, preferably one who has these credentials: *Board Certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery - the gold star symbol

*A member of the ASAPS (American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons) - the Queen Nefertiti symbol with a Triangle. Hope this is helpful and wish you all the very best. Kind regards, Brian Coan, MD, FACS CARE Plastic Surgery

Silver nitrate is a commonly used chemical that cauterizes the area you put it on. This means to burn. So that sensation is normal. Also, it is siver/black so it causes the drainage to change colors.
