Concerns about post-op tummy tuck complications

20 days ago I had tummy tuck surgery and now I have swollen abdomen. I feel like there is liquid gathered in there. At my last consultation, the doctor tried to take out the liquid with a syringe and what came out looked like black blood. He told me not to worry it and that with time all would be ok. Is black blood normal? Think I should see another doctor?

From your description it sounds like you have old blood/hematoma that is now liquified and should be aspirated or drained as your surgeon is doing
