    I wonder this too. I had one and had it drained 4 times. Now I have this stupid bulge above my scar and I swear there is one where I had lipo on my saddle bag. I’m 7 months post op after tummy tuck.

  2. Tracy says:

    I developed one at approx 12 weeks

  3. Loren says:

    Could u instantly tell u had one?

  4. Tracy says:

    Not straight away but knew something wasn’t right, as it got bigger I was able to do the ripple test, if you tap it on one side it will ripple all the way across the area like a waterbed! That is generally how you tell it’s a seroma.

    My belly just wobbles anyway lol

  6. Karen says:

    I got mine after about 12 days of tummy tuck.
    I too have now a part that bulges just under belly button. I hate it.

    I have a wobbly areas above my navel which concerns me a little.

    My nurse said Dr will redo that area if it’s still like it at my review. Cause I can’t see it changing
