How Long Will the Fat Transfer Results Last?
The survival of the fat and longevity of the results depend on the harvesting and preparation technique, physician’s skills, how and where it was injected. In addition, during the first 3 months, the fat graft would settle and become stable as your own fat. The injected fat area establishes a new blood supply from your body and receives the nourishment it needs for survival.
Once this happens, then results can and often are permanent unless losing weight. Sometimes we may need to touch up the area with further fat transfer or filler injections to reach optimal results.
Preparation & Recovery
During a consultation, Dr. Ray would go over the pre-procedure and post care instructions. To reach the best results, your compliance with treatment is crucial. After fat transfer procedure, you will receive detailed instructions about your post care, including information about how to handle possible symptoms and complications, if any, that may arise.
Recovery varies due to sight of liposuction and injections, here are the expectations you should have:
- Patients are expected to walk out of office after the procedure.
