Doctor Answers 3
Supra-pubic swelling after tummy tuck.
You should see your surgeon ASAP
There are many reasons for having pain, and you should see your doctor as soon as possible for an examination. You could have a late seroma, or fluid collection that has become infected and can cause pain and swelling. This typically drains dependently and could pool in the suprapubic area. It would need to be drained with a needle and possibly an ultrasound. You could also develop an abscess if left for too long.
