I am afraid that you may be developing a seroma.  This needs to be addressed by your plastic surgeon to make sure that it not infected and no other procedures are required.  You are in the right time frame post surgery for something like this.

This is something that requires a visit to your surgeon soon so that he/she can personally examine if you are healing OK or not.  If there is a wound healing problem, it may very well be treated without any further complication or compromise to a good overall outcome but time is of the essence so make that appointment asap.  Best of luck...
