Please think about attaching a photograph. It is quite difficult to answer questions such as this without additional information. It is quite unlikely that you have sustained any injury to any appear abdominal organs as the tummy tuck is all done outside the abdominal cavity.

Do continue to followup with her surgeon. If your physician still suspects fluid another try at aspirating is in order. Good luck and best wishes.
