Tummy tuck incision
Thanks for your question. Sometimes, incisions can "spit" sutures and this area will open up and drain yellowish or green fluid. This is a normal reaction to the spitting suture and may continue until the suture falls out or its removed. Please contact your plastic surgeon for an in office examination and follow up care. Best of luck.
