I had a tummy tuck and liposuction 5 weeks ago. My Plastic Surgeon does not use drains in his practice. I continue to fill with fluid in my abdominal area and he aspirates the fluid weekly. I have been tapped 4 times since the surgery. The first time he removed fluid was 7 days after surgery. He removed 800cc's. Second time was 750cc's, third time 400 cc's and this week he removed 500 cc's. By the next day, I began to fill up again. Within two days, my abdomin feels like a wave pool. He explained that because he doesn't use drains this is common, however, he said that starting next week he will tap me and use coritisone. I have never heard of this as a treatment for seromas. Please let me know if cortisone is a way to speed this process up and is this a way to treat seromas? and, is this a lot of fluid every week for a seroma?Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
