In brief: Not much

Walking is not going to help and in fact may make it bigger. Heat will also not be effective if the seroma is large.
Aspirating a seroma is generally done in an outpatient setting and the seroma may require multiple rounds of aspiration, depending on the rate of buildup, location and symptoms.
