Bulge After TT, but Was Flat at First, What Would Cause This?

I had a tummy tuck at the end of May. At first I was really flat. I did have a seroma and I had to have it aspirated for 4 weeks. This was after I had my drains in for 5 weeks. I have a huge bulge now. What could cause a bulge after being flat. Would this be fat if it was gone before?

Possible recurrent seroma after an abdominoplasty


Hard to know without an examination but it is possible that you have a recurrent seroma with a very dense scar type capsule.  You should be examined by your plastic surgeon.
