How To Treat Postoperative Seroma

About

A collection of fluid that build up under the surface of your skin is known as seroma.

35 percent of patients experienced a Seroma after surgery for breast cancer. [1]

- Requires medical treatment
- Requires lab test or image testing for diagnosis
- Can happen to both, men and women, but generally happens to women

Seroma have the appearance of a large cyst like a swollen lump. It develops after a surgical procedure, mostly where a tissue was removed. These can be formed after surgeries like body contouring, breast augmentation or mastectomy, hernia repair and abdominoplasty. They tend to appear 7 to 10 days after surgery after drainage tubes have been removed.

Symptoms

- Swelling
- Inflammation and pain
- Tenderness and bruising
- Fever and chills
- Blood pressure changes
- Rapid heart rate or breathing

Treatment

Self-Care: A heating pad or hot compress can be applied to help with fluid drainage while providing additional comfort to the incision area.

Fine-needle aspiration: It is sometimes used to drain the area. It is also a good way to monitor the volume of fluid leakage.

Specialists: Consult a doctor if the symptoms are evident and the condition worsens. At mfine, we provide accurate diagnosis and comprehensive treatment plans for all health concerns under a team of qualified doctors.
