Seroma leaking from incision two weeks post tummy tuck scar revision (Photo)

I had a tummy tuck SCAR REVISION done two weeks ago. Today I noticed that the seroma that had begun to build up has "sprung" a leak in the incision site. Is this a problem? Im have my two week post op tomorrow. It is a very small hole, but it has leaked quite a bit.. Also, if I press gently, the reddish liquid sorta spurts more quickly

Hi.  From what I can see, you can likely wait a day to see your surgeon, but it's always best to check with him/her and go by their direction.  Good luck and take care,Dr. Howell
