Brief Answer:
Fluid has passed into the scrotal skin.

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As liposuction was done to your tummy, some amount of fluid will left over after liposuction.
This fluid has migrated to the scrotum. The testis will be healthy. But, the layers surrounding the testis will be swollen.
I would a pressure bandage of the scrotum.
Medicines can't reduce the swelling.
I normally prefer to give small incisions over the scrotum and let the fluid out.
Please consult your doctor and proceed.
Nothing to worry.
If you have any queries, I will clarify further.
Wish you good health and speedy recovery.

It should get subsided .

Detailed Answer:
Hi
As the doctor said, it may get subsided within a week.
If not, get an Ultrasound of the scrotum.
Then, you can proceed depending on the report.
You can use pressure bandage over the scrotum.
