Loose skin after a tummy tuck
You do have some excess skin in your tummy, and I am sure the seroma did not help. Please check with your surgeon whether he will consider a revision. loosing some more weight will also help in getting an aesthetically pleasing result.

It looks like you still have loose skin that needs to be removed. Can a seroma case this? Yes. If it occupied enough of the space it could have stretched the skin out. Seromas are a well known occurrence that can happen. My advise would be to talk to your surgeon sooner than later to see what revision policy their office has and talk about just revising the skin. Also, having your BMI as close to or below 30 will maximize your result.
Allow the healing to be complete, then visit your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon and review your alternatives, and status in healing.

Thanks for the 3 after photos but I would like to review the before photos! If you have an acceptable result is my question. If your chosen surgeon was tooooo conservative, as I suspect because of the bilateral dog ears - worse on your right, than that is an issue between the two of you. Yes seroma collections and severe coughing can contribute to laxity of the skin but usually very minor.
