Post op concerns

You should see your plastic surgeon as soon as you can to discuss your post op concerns so that you can decide on further treatment, if any. 

Good luck!

Post Procedure Concern

If you have redness, swelling, #drainage or odor, it is important to call the office and speak with the doctor or medical staff. You may need to be seen in the office and evaluated. If the wound becomes separated or you develop a small opening, this again should be evaluated so that appropriate steps can be taken as soon as possible!

No its not normal to have this much bleeding and oozing after this surgery.  This means you need to be seen by your surgeon..and it should be immediate. Hope this helps.
