I had an extensive tummy tuck, lipo in front and back. I have developed a large hematoma on the right side of my lower abdomen. Is that normal? Should I be worried!

Hematomas are always serious issue. Call your surgeon and figure out your next step. Large hematomas need to be tackled surgically.

Thanks for your inquiry, but without an exam it is impossible to advise. I suggest you ask your surgeon how concerned he/she is and more importantly, what is the course of action. Good Luck.
