I had SmartLipo on my lower legs (ankles/calves); I'm post surg day 2 and there is no bruising. After seeing pictures of other women who had the procedure, their bruises were intense. Should I be worried or should I feel blessed?
No Bruising After SmartLipo, is This Normal?

Typically patients have slight bruising, it is normal not to have any bruising as well. Continue to wear your compression garment to control any swelling.

You should feel blessed. Everybody reacts differently to the same procedures. Most people will have some minor swelling and bruising but it is quite variable. Enjoy your results!
You should feel blessed since your surgeon was likely very gentle and allowed for the proper time for the epinephrine to work which results in less bleeding into the tissues and less bruising.
