7 weeks and still have Bruising around incision. Any suggestions?
Discoloration around incision
Thank you for your question. For the discoloration which may be bruising or hemosiderin staining, an IPL laser can be used to treat the discoloration to treat either the bruising or hemosiderin staining. As far as wearing a wireless bra, there is a vast selection of post surgical bras available. My suggestion is to look at companies such as Marena and talk to a representative regarding your problem. They can then fit you with an appropriate post operative bra. Best wishes in your recovery!
