Bruising and swelling after a liposuction procedure is a concern of some patients.
Bruising typically is resolved after about two to three weeks for most patients. Swelling is the most noticeable in the first two weeks following the liposuction procedure. Swelling tends to last several months (3-6) and most patients report having good days and bad days of swelling. Physical activity can increase the swelling. Compression garments help reduce swelling.
If you are considering a liposuction procedure and are concerned about bruising, your surgeon can address this at your consultation. Please contact Advanced Cosmetic Surgery Center in Denver at 303-367-9000 or serotamd.com.
