Hi Not sure where you are having your surgery done, I had my at OCC. I had 4 incisions which were about 1/3 of an inch or less, and one which was 1 inch. I believe that the doctor used a surgical glue verses sutures and it washed off about the 10-12 days after surgery. I could shower the day after surgey. I didn't have a drian, and I am so happy I didn't. I think it may depends if the surgern decides to use one. None of the 3 other gals who had their surgery done when I was there didn't have drains either.. It may also be the type of WLS you have, from what I have learned since my surgery VSG and BY Pass surgeries do use drains. Hope this helps....definately ask your surgeon so you know what to expect..
