My lipoma removal.

Thank you for sharing your question and congratulations on your procedure.  Bruising is not uncommon after surgery but should resolve over the span of 10-14 days.  You can help speed the bruising resolution by reducing the swelling in your leg and using warm compresses to improve blood flow.  Hope this helps.
