Minor bruising should not be cause for concern. Let your Plastic Surgeon know if you have ongoing issues.

Congratulations on your surgery. A superficial bruise will not affect the implant/device deep under the skin.

A small bruise that is superficial after breast augmentation surgery should not be a problem.Good luck and congratulations.

 Congratulations on having undergone the breast augmentation procedure. No the superficial bruising will not effect the underlying breast implants. Best wishes.

Bruise on breast after surgery

Thanks for your question. It is unlikely that any permanent damage has been done. You should be well healed at this point. Obviously if you have any significant concerns, contact your surgeon.  Best Regards

Hickey one month after surgery

A hickey caused by sucking is due to small blood vessels breaking in the skin resulting in a bruise. They are just 'skin deep' and are really no more than a mild bruise. A month after surgery this should not cause a problem.
