How long has the area looked like that?

Sometimes patients can heal with some darkness in lipo areas from the iron left
behind after a bruise. This is called hemosiderin staining. It’s possible this
is the case for you. This resolves over time but can take a long period.
Occasionally topical creams or laser might help. If it’s quite early then just
wait for now, if not follow-up with your PS and see what they can offer you.

you did not give a lot of information regarding this site. How long out are you from surgery? Is there pain, drainage, fever, warmth?
