I have two areas of fluid between my breast skin and tissue expander. The exchange surgery is in eight weeks. Anyone have this and if so is it a problem? There is slight bulging in the areas of fluid.
Fluid Between Tissue Expander and Skin - Should I Be Worried?

Fluid around expander
This is very common. Unless there is redness or signs of infection or bleeding, this should not be a problem.
Tissue expander and fluid
It is fairly common to have a little bit of fluid around the expander. As long as it is not infected, it should be OK to continue filling the expander.
Unless the fluid is a sign of bleeding or infection or distorting the expansion process, I doubt if it will be a problem.
