Is there a time window post breast reconstruction surgery that a patient is in the clear for skin necrosis?

has a different, more dark color as if bruised. It is cool to touch and doesn't blanch when pushed on. If you have blanching and its warm to touch, it is anticipated to heal fine. And compromised skin progressively turns darker and darker until black... hopefully yours is better than that.
