How often are drains used after breast augmentation?

Question:
How often are drains used after breast augmentation? What are they used for and how long are they typically used?

Answer:
We use drains after very complicated breast augmentations, usually secondary cases and after capsulectomy and also when I place products such as strattice or alloderm.  I do not use drains after a typical breast augmentation. Drains in these complicated cases are removed when the drain is getting to a minimal point, usually after 4 or 5 days and sometimes up to a week.
