Hi there.

Seromas are common complications of surgery to the breast specially in more extensive surgeries.  The treatment for these conditions is mainly aspiration (inserting a needle and aspirating the contents).  A diagnostic exam that can be done is ultrasound.  This can somewhat differentiate if the fluid inside is serous or bloody, in which case any of which can be treated effectively by your surgeon.

I suggest you inform your surgeon about this so that he can institute proper treatment.
Regards and God bless.
