Could Recurrent Seromas from Tummy Tuck Be Due to Bacteria in Polyfilament Sutures?
After third seroma repair (my 8th abdominal surgery), fistula developed in incision so there is always drainage from the small hole in my incision. I was told my choices are to live with it or have an extensive 4-5 hour surgery to remove every polyfilament suture that probably has bacteria that is causing the seromas/abcesses to develop. Do I have other choices? It was also suggested that cancer could possibly form at the sutures especially if those areas are consistently irritated.
Recurrent seroma from sutures
Permanent sutures may become infected
Seromas are not related to braided sutures, but persistent drainage from bacteria-contaminated sutures is a reality.
