The majority of abdominal wall hernia repairs result in some amount of seroma fluid. We do not address this unless there is tightness and pain associated with it. They resolve on their own.

Seroma fluid typically occurs because the space where the hernia used to bulge from is now empty. The body doesn’t like empty spaces, and so it fills the space with fluid, until the space scars in.
