see your physician to have your seromas drained. The heat suggests
infection, which must be treated with antibiotics. This is not normal
and needs to be treated ASAP. Compression, lymphatic massage and RF treatments will help this subside along with the drainings. Best, Dr. Emer
I got liposuction on my outer thighs but fluid keeps accumulating and it's warm. Will it ever subside?

Liposuction on Thighs: Seromas Should Be Drained / Check for Infection
Fluid collection post l;iposuction
You should see your Plastic surgeon. Fluid that reaccumulates is usually a serome. These need to be drained two or three times a week until they resolve. Increased temperature (or presence of redness) usually denotes an infection. The fluid in these cases should be cultured and you should be started on an antibiotic if indicated.
Hope you continue to hear well.

- Your own surgeon will need to advise you.
- Fluid that keeps accumulating tends to be a seroma and requires repeated removal 2-3 x week for several weeks or longer to subside.
- But if the area is warm, it may be infected as well.
- So please see your own surgeon without delay.
