Unfortunately bruising is a common side effect of liposuction surgery. This can make you feel tender in areas and uncomfortable. We recommend sticking to your aftercare plan as much as possible as this will help to reduce the amount of bruising. Bruising can take up to 3 weeks to completely subside.
