Yellowish drainage from nipple incision site. (photos)

Yellow is drainage from nipple incision site.
THank you for sharing your question and photographs. Though there is no clear cause for concern in your photographs, and yellow drainage (serum) may be part of the normal healing process I would reach out to your surgeon to inform them of this change in your recovery. It looks as if you need a suture removed from your incision repair site so perhaps both issues can be taken care of at one time. Best wishes.
Areolar wound discharge
Based on your pictures and the fact that you are 5 weeks out from your surgery I doubt the slight discharge is a serious problem. You may be having a reaction to one of the deep sutures as your body is absorbing it. Those issues are usually taken care of with just routine soap and water. Keep your appt as scheduled of course and if your skin turns red or the discharge increases please let your physician know.
