Many patients ask this question and the answer is yes. Bruising after surgery is common and normal. After any surgical incision, some blood may leak from small blood vessels under the skin and this causes the bruising. But if you feel concerned about the bruise, you can send us a photo or you can contact us so Dr. Dan can assess and give you advice.
