Hello, and thanks for your question
Bruising depends on many factors- some that you can help with, some that are just your body, and some that the surgeon can assist with.
A healthy body tends to heal better. So, I encourage my patients to eat well, be sensible about things that harm your body like alcohol intake, and exercise, especially in the leadup to surgery. Many supplements encourage bleeding, so I suggest my patients stop all supplements(like fish oils, garlic, aspirin, some antinflammatories), except for those that are prescribed by a medical practitioner. These will always be discussed with your during our planning for your surgery.
I give you guidleines postoperatively to help you reduce swelling and bruising.
Genetics, area of surgery(some anatomical areas of the body bruise more than others) and numerous other factors are some of those you cannot control.
And of course, my training and expertise as a Specialist Plastic Surgeon contribute to my methods and approaches to any surgery, all designed to achieveing minimal brusing and superior aesthetic and safe medical results. That part is my contribuion to helping you get the best results.
So, you see, as always, there is a certain amount of team work between you and me.
Hope this helps.
