What's Causing Red Blotch Under Breast After Breast Augmentation & Lift?

Discoloration post augmenttion
Bruising after Breast Implants
While many women don't bruise at all after breast augmentation, some women can have a little bruising, like a little red or purple patch around the incision sites or even more extensive bruising that may cover the breasts and even work their way down onto the abdomen after a few days. Your plastic surgeon should be able to reassure you when he sees you in your first postoperative visit and examines you.
