Customer Question

2 month ago I had a face lift and hours after surgery something happened. My right eye got swollen and I ended up having a horrible hematoma on that side. Got from red to black to purple to,Blue to greenish. After all this time Most of the swelling got down but I still have some weird coloríng In all tha area. Like a bruised shadow. Will I ever get to normal by itself or I should do something about it?

Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with the reply momentarily.

Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 17 days ago.

This is likely to go on its own. This coloring is likely due to pigmentation of the skin because of hematoma. The hemosiderin pigment penetrates the skin and that may take sometimes 3-4 months to go away.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.
