I had Liposuction 3+ weeks ago on my torso... My Dr. now every few days is having to drain (via a syringe) fluid from my lower ab area. Is this normal?

Seroma after liposuction
Seromas are clear liquid collections that may occur, although rarely, after liposuction. Drainage is important to minimize the chance of developing an infection. They often resolve and compression garments are helpful. Hematomas are collections of blood and that can be drained too, but the color is purple or red.
