First time around with one incision site left open, I drained for about 24-36 hours. The second time around with NO incision sites left open, I didn't drain at all. I think 9 days of draining would be really unusual. I'm guessing most is between 1-3 days.

It depends on whether your PS stiches the incisions or leaves them open. Mine were stitched and i had just a little leakage 1st night then nothing. My swelling doesnt seem any worse that what i have read about on here from either method. I prefer the lesser leaking and glad mine were stitched

All of my incisions were stitched so I didn't have any leaking.

I'm sure a lipo vet with this experience will post a response.

I had 9 open incisions and leaked heavy for 2-3 days then by the 4th day there was only 1 left open and soon all healed over with no cream...until they are closed...besides the fluid the first day was darker then later just a pink color...my PS said you may lose 1 TBLS blood and the rest is fluid
Its kind of freaky but then its over ...

Ha, I wish mine was 9 days. Mine seriously lasted for TWO weeks, but now the incisions have healed remarkably! They squeezed out some more fat (looked like light colored ketchup) a couple days after. I wasnt a happy camper!

I was surprised how much I was leaking, but hey if it's more fluid and fat that I don't need.. that was fine with me. Then it starts to turn yellow which is a sign you are healing and that it would stop soon. So happy say that part is done with!

Lower abs, some back, hips, saddlebags - open incisions - about a day & a half or so. Really the most leakage was within 8 hours after the procedure. After that it tapered off to nothing.
