In a facial fat transfer procedure, fat cells are harvested from the abdomen or love handles, purified, and injected into the treatment area to improve softness, texture, and volume in specific facial areas.
What is recovery like after fat transfer?
The recovery after fat transfer is quite mild, and varies from person to person. You may want to take seven to ten days off work and social activities, during which you can expect some swelling, which will gradually subside during the few weeks following the procedure. When the swelling subsides completely, your final results will be apparent.
