Your surgeon is explaining normal bruising that can happen after any surgery. Bruising is simply blood you can see through the skin. This is old blood that is migrating lower due to gravity. It will go away as we'll as the swelling around it.  The changing color is the blood breaking down into different colored pigments. If the swelling and bruising don't improve see your surgeon.
