Is it normal to have a lump by your armpit where the doctor performed lipo as part of breast reduction?

I got a breast reduction one week ago and had a little lipo by the armpit. That area is so tender and also has a large lump. It looks horrible. Is this a Seroma? I am very upset. I just spent a lot of money.

You should really talk with your surgeon or see him in person to determine what is going on.  You are a very recent post-op and that would be the best thing to do. Good luck.
