4 wks post op mini tt, flank lipo. Had one drain for 5 days with output of 25 cc first, then 20cc, 15 cc, 10 cc, 7 cc and it was removed. However from the beginning I had a pouch above suture line that is jiggly when I walk. It's still that way. Is this a seroma. My muscle def is good so did not do any muscle repair. Also no fat in upper abs.

Get checked out by your surgeon

All I can say from the photo is that you might have a seroma. This will be easy for your surgeon to ascertain and an actual in person evaluation will be necessary for this. It merits a call for an appointment. Thanks and best wishes.
Seroma after tummy tuck
A seroma after tummy tuck can seem like a sloshing or wave like shifting in the lower abdomen, and are not uncommon after drain removal, so let you surgeon have a look.

Thanks for your question, but it is difficult to tell from your picture if you have a fluid collection/seroma. Please see your plastic surgeon.
Seroma after mini-tummy tuck?
It is difficult to tell you whether or not you have a seroma without an exam. If you feel a fluid shift as you walk or a swooshing feeling from fluid, then you probably do. It is best to be seen by your doctor.
