Drains prevent fluid accumulation in the surgical site, which is why they are of utmost importance. Fluid accumulation underneath the tissues, creates a pocket called “seroma” and drains prevent this complication to occur. Whenever you have a cosmetic surgery procedure, such as Arm Lift, Breast Surgery, Tummy Tuck etc. you will need “surgical drains”. You will need you to bear with the drains for a couple of days and its very important to be careful not to pull them out of your skin because it can be very painful.
