Liposuction - will seroma go away
- If you are accumulating fluid, the surgeon who drained it once will need to do so again.
- I suggest you return to the doctor who drained it once already.
- It will need to be drained repeatedly until the fluid stops forming.

it's a bit unusual to have fluid after lipo, but sounds like you had a fair amount removed. If several attempts at removal by needle recur, may need to have wound opened , skin removed and perhaps removal of a bursa, but this would be very unusual.
Lipo and swelling
Hello, the ideal way to manage seromas in the lower abdomen is aspiration and local compression to close the virtual space created into your skin that producce the acucmulation of liquid (seroma). Some times it stop by doing this. other times its necesary to make a local liposuction in the area to aspirante the seroma an make local compresión for some days.
