Why aren't your local doctors willing to help?
I have a seroma that won't heal . My Dr. Said with compression it should resolve it self.
I would recommend that you discuss this question with your surgeon. Every surgeon has their own specific post op protocol for their patients and your surgeon is the best resource when questions arise. They are most familiar with your medical history, details of your surgery, and how you are healing.
Small seromas can resolve with compression alone, but may require drainage in the office. Sometimes patients require multiple visits to remove fluid, or placement of a temporary catheter.
If you are unable to see your surgeon, find a board-certified plastic surgeon who can help you.
