Yellow fluid following buttocks augmentation

Yellow fluid comming out is a concern for seroma which can lead to implant infection; aggressive management should include culturing the fluid to tailor a short course of antibiotics as well as to wearing compression garments and minimizing physical activity.

Fluid coming out of your incision needs to be evaluated.  It may represent a seroma or possibly an infection. Best of luck.
