Yellow appearance during healling
Bruising of the liposuctioned areas is common. The coloring of the bruises ranges from black and blue to purple and then often fade to a yellow hue. The numbness and soreness you describe is also common at this stage of recovery and will gradually improve. Sometimes numbness can persist for several months but does tend to lessen over time. Good luck!
