Trapped fluid under skin

Postby funnygirl8768 » Thu Sep 27, 2007 5:52 pm

I'm two weeks post-op from lipo of thighs and my left incision finally closed up. The problem is there is still about a half cup or so of fluid still trapped in my inner thigh. It's really weird. I'm able to move it up my leg and then it falls back down. Will this go away by itself? Or does the Dr. need to extract it with a needle? Anyone out there ever have this happen to them?

I'd call my doc if I were you...it might need to be drained.

Hello, I had that in one of my knees/thighs--it was a seroma. I went to my PS and he in fact drained it. It came back two days later, which he said it would (but not as bad) and I went in and he drained it again. He didn't seem too concerned about it and says it happens from time to time. The weird thing is that my legs were still numb, so you don't even really feel the needle. I had to close my eyes though, because it grossed me out!!

I had swelling in my knee area, and I just massaged it and it finally went away.
