I Had Tumescent Lipo July 2nd, It's Been 6 Days and I Haven't Drained at All. Is This Normal?

I am 42 5'4" 143 lbs pre-op and am now close to 148 post op.. I feel this hot searing "fluid" around my mid-section. Worn my compression garment, and took my antibiotics as instructed. It hurts to move, like the hot fluid moves around my midsection and it burns. I had lipo on my flanks, upper and lower abs and lower back. I also had breast aug, but that doesn't even bother me at all, just like drying up after breast feeding. Is this normal?

Possible seroma after liposuction

It is possible that you have a seroma which although not common following liposuction but the do occur. You may need to be examined and if it is a seroma it can be needle aspirated.
