What are some things to do about a seroma after a post-op tummy?

Conservative rx. A seroma is a collection of fluid. It will generally resolve over time. If the seroma has not resolved in several months, additional therapy may be necessary. If there is no pain or infection of the seroma, conservative therapy is usually enough.
Aspirate. Most plastic surgeons will aspirate fluid accumulation after tummy tuck surgery. Seromas may require several episodes of drainage/aspiration. The concern is that we do not want to allow the collection to become “chronic” ( or develop a bursa); if this occurs surgical excision/drainage may become necessary.
