Tummy Tuck: Q&AAsk a Question
Bloody Seroma Caused by an Aspiration Mistake?
I am 5 weeks post-op from a tummy tuck. After week 2 I began to get a waterbed wave of fluid across my abs above my incision. The PS removed the fluid that was a pinkish/red color. During the aspiration, I felt the needle poke me inside, the PS apologized.
On my 2nd visit a week later, the fluid was a dark, deeper red and also on the 3rd visit. The fluid level is just about the same each time. The PS is now concerned about the color of the fluid.
Is it possible that he hit something when he did the 1st aspiration? He wants me to get blood work and possible surgery at my expense.
It's possible but probably no cause for alarm
