A Seroma is a pocket of clear serous fluid that sometimes develops in the body after surgery. When small blood vessels are disrupted, blood plasma can seep out into the surgical area. Further, the inflammatory process can lead to additional fluid exudate.
Seromas are different from hematoma and can sometimes be caused by injury, such as when the initial swelling from a blow or fall does not fully subside. The remaining fluid causes a Seroma that the body usually gradually absorbs over time however, a knot of calcified tissue sometimes remains.
Seromas are particularly common after some plastic surgical procedures where large areas are undermined, leading to large raw surfaces. Many patients find that it makes their initial recovery period more difficult, and some need repeated visits to their doctor to have the Seroma fluid drained.
Liposuction surgeons in Mexico eliminate Seromas by initiating placement of a drain at the time of surgery and take meticulous care of the patient.
