1 week today!

Hello Dr. Roughton! 

I am one week into my recovery for BA and bra line lipo. Woohoo! I noticed some fresh bruising on and around my left breast. Is this something to be expected? I’m definitely still swollen and tender, but have been doing my exercises.

  • Hi!  Not sure if fresh bruising is normal but it may be that you just noticed it?  Liposuction is the craziest thing!  We make a 2-4 mm incision and it hurts more than almost anything else we do to folks.  I think this happens because all the little nerves remain intact rather than divided (as we do in open surgery).  Nerves intact means pain rather than numbness.  It does get better, I promise.  Swelling goes down and patients forget how much they were mad at me initially. πŸ˜‰

    I would be honored to see you at my office in Raleigh, NC!
