I'm worried about the hematoma that oozed out. I am 4 weeks post op and it looks scary. Has anyone had this happen? (photo)

If you had a hematoma or seroma under your abdominal skin post-operatively, then it is best to have it out. This is not uncommon after abdominoplasty. It is appropriate to pack an open wound until it closes on its own so that it doesnt get infected. You will likely have a widened scar in that area that eventually can be revised.
