i went back to school after the lipo and my friends were messing around and punching me and hitting me. i got hit in the chest like 8 times over a 2 week period. it caused my chest to swell up a bit. will these cause permanent damage or no?

A surgical site can be damaged with trauma during healing. Most have had cuts in their lives. Bang a healing cut and it can reopen. New swelling after surgery can mean new damage. Break open sutures or disrupt repair can result in a worse scar or deformity. Whether something has been damaged enough to be permanent is best discussed with your doctor or someone who can evaluate the situation.

Hope this helps,
