- Thanks for the question. It is certainly possible to have some remnants of abdominal fluid after three weeks following an abdominoplasty . Either limited aspirations through the skin or reinsertion of a othe drain would be recommended. Follow the advice of your local Plastic Surgeon for this guidance.
