I recently underwent abdominoplasty and lipo of the flanks. Upon awaking I noticed my lipo area had red splotches on both sides above my hips where the lipo occurred. They look like a "red port wine" type of birthmark. My PS says to give it time, but has admitted that she has not seen anything like it on her patients. Although I trust her, I read somewhere that these may be permanant. Any ideas on what it could be?
Red Blotches After Liposuction Normal? Will They Go Away?
