What can I expect after the procedure? What is the recovery time for fat transfer?
Recovery times after fat transfer will vary depending on the area and amount of treatment. There can be some discomfort in the donor area as after liposuction. The injection site may show some bruising and swelling which will gradually improve and disappear over a few days to two weeks. Patients, if they feel up to it, can resume normal activities immediately after the procedure and, in most cases, are back at work within a week. In general, discomfort is minimal and controlled by oral medications, if needed at all.
