I had a large hematoma discovered the morning after surgery. It was like 2 grapefruits hanging from my neck. I went to the dr he suctioned it off. Next 3 days orange jelly ball, suctioned again, next 3 days golf balls, suctioned again it was gone with firm dried blood under skin. thankful dr. Kim was aggressive and kept suctioning wound. It was a nightmare. I couldn't find much on here so I am writing a review. It was very scary. I was told that it would take 6 weeks by another dr. to be absorbed by the body and go down. I am surprised that so little treatment plans for hematomas exist. I looked horrible and couldn't imagine having 6 weeks like this. I am 13 days in. The third suction (with a lipo suction machine) took all the jelly blood out and I am left with what feels like a scab (hardened dried blood) I also had fraxel under the eyes and fat injections. I am very happy with these two procedures. The verdict is out on the neck surgery. I grew a beard to hide all the bruising. I am 45 and in good health and work out regularly. I have noticed that the extra skin that was hanging under my chin is gone. That is what I wanted.

I am 13 days out of neck lift surgery. Dr. Kim has...

My Doctor: Kun Kim, MD
Dr. Kim was very attentive with the whole hematoma complication. He even came into his office on a Sunday to check and drain the hematoma. I found him through another service provider.Updated on 26 Sep 2012:My hematoma was very scary. I wrote a separate review. I am very happy with his attentiveness so far.
