Bruising After a Breast Revision
But, it can be up to one year see your final result. Your doctor may require you to move or massage the implants within the breast pockets during the #postoperative period. #Textured implants do not require breast massage. You will be informed about this at your post-operative visit. Be sure you're walking around the house periodically throughout the day. This will help minimize #swelling and #bruising and help with the #healing process. You do not want to lay in bed for days and days without some mild activity.
Bruising after Breast Augmentation Revision
You didn't state when your surgery was and only showed one view of the bruise but you should follow up with your surgeon for an exam ASAP to make sure there is no hematoma. Good luck.

Bruising can follow any invasive procedure, even if you didn't bruise the first time. It can be worse with certain medications or genetic factors affecting clotting. A capsulectomy is a more invasive procedure often than primary breast augmentation. If your breast feels significantly more swollen on that side and there is pain, you may have a hematoma, which will need to be evaluated by your surgeon. If not, then the bruising will just resolve on its own.
