Post op hematoma from liposuction

A hematoma is collection of blood that accumulates after a surgical procedure.  They are quite common and can occur after liposuction.  Even when drained, they reoccur.  I would keep draining the hematoma until it totally resolves.  Wearing a tight garment (spanx) will help prevent the hematoma from reforming, and I would not exercise until the hematoma is resolved.
