One side swollen is it seroma, or normal? (photos)

I am 1 month post tummy tuck and one side (the left side) of tummy above incision is more swollen then the other, also if I press the right uper size of the swollen area the size increases on the left side. Could this be a seroma? Please check the attached pictures. Thank you very much

The swelling on the left side may either be a seroma or post-op swelling. You should follow-up with your PS who most likely will be able to distinguish the 2 possibilities by examination. Good luck!
