I Had 10cc's of Fluid Removed from my Lower Abdomen After Tummy Tuck--will This Likely Need Additional Treatment?
I am 20 days post op from a full tummy tuck w/ lipo on my stomach/flanks. While the initial swelling has gone down quite a bit, I noticed one small area that had that "water bed" effect. I went into my surgeon immediately, and she drained 10cc's of fluid. She told me to continue wearing my binder and to restrict activity as much as possible for the next week. Is it likely I'll need to have the area drained again or should it go away on its own? Is this amount of fluid significant?
