Is this normal to leave a JP drain in so long after a Tummy Tuck? I've had my JP drain for 1 month, but I only have 25 cc coming out each day.

  • When there is less than 30cc/day coming out of drain for two days in a row, I will remove the drain.
  • Definitely, give your plastic surgeon a call, and see if he/she agrees that it is time for you to be drain free!
  • Best of luck to you!
