I've had Liposuction 8 weeks ago. During the procedure my bowel was perforated, and now I have a very painful seroma.

Liposuction - need advice on complications
- This is a terrible complication - I am so sorry you are going through this.
- Seromas after liposuction can usually be treated with repeated aspirations - removal with a needle done 2-3 x a week until fluid stops forming - or by placing a such drain.
- Pain management cannot be done on-line -- your own surgeons need to be the ones to help you.
- Seromas are not typically painful - ask your surgeons to have the radiologist who does the CT scan do an aspiration of seroma fluid for cultures, to be sure the seroma is not infected.
