Draiage tube after breast reduction

Patient: Is it common practice to insert the draining tubes on a patient after she has had breast – reduction surgery ?

 

 

Doctor: Yes, it is common practice to use drainage tubes after such a procedure. This reduces fluid collection at the operation site and thus reduces potential complications such as infections.
