The formation of a seroma after abdominoplasty is one of the most common complications faced by plastic surgeons. A 59yearold man underwent lipoabdominoplasty and developed a large subcutaneous seroma that persisted for 7 months. Percutaneous sclerosis with talc was performed. We present the first report of chronic seroma after lipoabdominoplasty successfully treated with talc sclerosis.
