Bruising after a tummy tuck

The bruising might be due to a number of things, including a hematoma, seroma, trauma, or infection.  Check with your plastic surgeon soon to make sure none of these things is occurring.

Best to see a hematologist for a blood/bleeding work up. This is NOT the normal response after a Tummy Tuck.

Hello and thanks for your post and photo. A common cause of bruising is the use of aspirin related products including ibuprofen, etc. Consider your medications, but also bring this issue up with your doctor as there could be other underlying causes. Best wishes, Dr. Aldo.
