Bruising Returned After Nasal Surgery?

Hello, I got nasal surgery to repair my nose about a month ago. The bruising went away the first week but it has returned. Should I be worried? Is this common? Thank You!

As long as you didn't have significant trauma, you may have just had a small blood vessel bleed under the skin.
Watch it, ice it, and cover it up. The black and blue will go away and stay away. Consult your surgeon with any concern.

Best wishes.
