Seroma absorbed itself? (photos)

Repeat the Ultrasound
Repeat ultrasound and if necessary aspiration under ultrasound control is necessary to fully drain the seroma. Keep the abdominal binder on 24 hours a day for a further six weeks and reduce your activity as this is usually responsible for a seroma at this stage.

Nonetheless, you need to see your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or have him help find another Board Certified Plastic Surgeon where you live to have an in person examination, because you may require needle aspiration to quickly resolve your abdominal seroma. Untreated, seromas can produce long term contour deformities and irregularities and possible infections can occur.
Also, you can have your right thigh wound evaluated and treated at the same time for the best outcome of both. Best wishes, Dr. Richard Swift
