I had liposuction today with fat transfer to butt. I've had slow bright red bleeding from an area on my stomach. Is that normal?

Bleeding after surgery

You need to call your physician.  Only he/she knows the details of what was done during surgery.  Be prepared to go in for an office visit.

NO! Call your surgeon immediately!!!! I would want to see you if I was the surgeon. Never should be a bother for a surgeon to offer close follow up care....
