Please follow up with your surgeon so he/she can examine you at this time. Your bruising is more excessive than normal.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative breast surgery.
Best of luck!
Is this bruising normal?
In the photo you have shared, it appears that the bruising is just in your skin and the left breast does not appear noticeably enlarged compared to the opposite breast. This type of bruising will clear on its own and is not of long term importance. However, you should see your surgeon for an in person assessment and examination to be safe. Online consultation is inadequate for the assessment of this type of issue.
Your bruising exceeds what is expected early after breast augmentation
Photographs only permit a 2 dimensional view and are limited in their capacity to transmit information for a reliable diagnosis. Nevertheless, your photo shows more bruising than expected early after breast augmentation. I suggest you contact your surgeon and have him/her perform a proper examination.
