Seromas are a fluid collection that can happen in any cosmetic surgery, including tummy tuck. They mostly occur around the implant itself. During surgery, whenever a pocket is created or tissue is dissected, the body reacts by filling the cavity with fluid. This fluid accumulation is called a seroma. This happens in butt implant procedures as well, as a pocket is made in order to place the implant. Seromas can happen after the surgery.
There are currently two sorts of buttock implant: a smooth implant and a texture implant. The risk of developing a seroma within 2 to 3 years from a texture implant is up to 20%. The danger of having seroma is more probable with a texture implant than a smooth one. The probability is considerably lesser with a smooth implant. If a seroma happens and is of a significant size then it can be drained. Drainage of the seroma will help alleviate the side effects such as pain and discomfort, however, there is a chance they may recur.
