If you have a seroma after a tummy tuck, routine aspiration is the initial treatment, but you may have to have a more involved surgical procedure to remove the cavity. Usually aspiration routinely will be the treatment of choice.
Least Evasive Touch Up Surgery For C-Section Scar?
By your description and the "red" appearance on the posted photos you have an infected seroma. This needs immediate drainage and you need to be started on antibiotics (PO or IV or both). Call your surgeon ASAP.
The symptoms that you describe sound like a seroma or fluid collection under your skin. You should talk with your surgeon and a place a drain placement to have the fluid removed. This can be done in the office or at a radiology center. It is not a big procedure, but it will help you heal faster.
