Tubes Not Draining Fast Enough, Does Massage Help? (photo)

What happens if my tubes from BBL are not done draining the min. amount after 10 days and I need to fly home. I love my PS by the way but he is not a big pusher on massages...does massages help with the drainage or is that just for keeping scar tissue at bay?

      There are some plastic surgeons who use drains and some who do not.   I do not use them, so I would check with your surgeon about determining what to do.
