VASER lipo seroma

serums need intensive treatment with aspiration and compression. If it persists, you may need the seroma sac surgically excised. Repeat VASER would be a bad idea. ultrasound will identify fluid but not type of fluid so if you PS says its a seroma, then its a seroma especially since he has aspirated it multiple times and it is serous fluid and bot blood. All surgical procedures (even cosmetic) have known and predictable complications. Post-Vaser seroma is extremely common, but not 6 weeks out.
