From the pictures themselves, it's not easy to say what exactly is going on. I recommend contacting your surgeon for an evaluation. You may have a seroma that has redeveloped. Best of luck!

Thank you for your question.
It is difficult to determine as swelling may take 6 months to subside.
Should you still be concerned after the 6 month period, I'd recommend booking a follow-up appointment with your Board Certified Plastic Surgeon to discuss your concerns.

It is difficult to know exactly what the bulge is. It may be just swelling (and likely is), but it could also be another seroma trying to form. If a seroma stays around for too long, it may progress into something called a "pseudobursa" which is essentially a chronic seroma which can be more difficult to get rid of. I recommend visiting with your surgeon for an evaluation and a discussion of your options based on what this likely is. Best of luck!
