One week after Smart Lipo, one of my sides is hard, swollen, now bruised, and a little tender to the touch. The other side is smoother with no bruising. Is this normal?

One side always looks different
As a rule, we expect each side to swell and bruise differently. So what you are experiencing sounds perfectly normal. However, I would check with your surgeon to make sure you are seen and that there is no hematoma (blood collection) that could affect your final result.
