Complication after liposuction
Regardless you need to see your plastic surgeon ASAP.
I would highly recommend you be seen in person. Please call your plastic surgeons office and asked to speak with him as soon as possible.
If he is not available then he should have someone covering for him.
If you cannot get a hold of the doctor at all then you may need to go to an emergency room.
If you end up going to an emergency department then you may want to confirm they have a plastic surgeon on call before you go there. The best thing to do is to get a hold of your plastic surgeon as soon as possible and be seen in person.
Best of luck,

Liposuction - now has blister
- Based only on the photo, you appear to either have a skin blister or to have a seroma (fluid collection) that has begun to drain from an incision.
- It is unlikely to be a serious complication but you should see your surgeon.
- This is not intestine or abdominal wall protruding through your skin.
- I suggest you call your surgeon's office to schedule an appointment.
