Probably: No trauma to site? You need to get this evaluated immediately. You might need medication depending on what is causing it.

Basically I sucked  a cup and now I have a red dotty bruise across my chin it's really ugly and I want it gone please help?

It will take time: The force exerted against your skin ruptured capillaries and vessels, causing blood leakage into the extracellular space, causing the bruised appearance and the red dots, or petechiae. It will take time for these vessels to heal and time for your body to clear the area of the leaked blood cells. You can use makeup to cover it like a black eye or a blemish, but it will take some days to resolve. ...Read more

Does liposocution under chin leave a lot of bruising? will i be okay 2 weeks post op? as i want to travel& i guess it varies. But i'd like to know

Does liposocution under chin leave a lot of bruising? will i be okay 2 weeks post op? as i want to travel& i guess it varies. But i'd like to know

Depends: Liposuction causes bruising and swelling which will look improved after 2 weeks probably enough to go back to work or be socially presentable. Travel may be OK after 2 wks but you should check with your doctor before making plans. If you have complications (ie: infection), this may delay your healing. To be on the safe side you may want to wait a month before making extensive travel plans. ...Read more

Bruise: Bruises take their own time to heal. It is basically a collection of blood in the area where you see it. As it resolves, the colors change. No way to really hasten the recovery. Maybe some make up coverage until it resolves? ...Read more
