Fat Transfer to Face Patient #1

This 64 year old patient had Fat Transfer to her face. The Fat to be injected was harvested from her abdominal area. Fat was injected into the patients cheeks, under eyes and temples to achieve a full and youthful look. The after photographs you see were taken 4 months post surgery.

What’s the recovery period after a Fat Transfer procedure?

As with most cosmetic surgeries, you will need to take time to recover. The recovery period will be different for each patient depending on the extent of the surgery, the area of the body, and the patient’s health.

After a Fat Transfer, most people feel uncomfortable for the first couple of days and depending on their occupation and extent of the surgery can return to work 1-week after surgery. Bruising, swelling and discomfort can last a couple of days, or up to 2-weeks.

Light exercise can usually begin 1-week after surgery and more strenuous exercise can be done after 3-weeks. Remember that it is important to follow an exercise maintenance program to achieve the greatest results from the surgery.

Are there any risks to Fat Transfer?

Fat Transfer is a low risk procedure, though bruising and infection may occur. The key to any procedure is to properly follow your post-care instructions to minimize any potential risks.

During your consultation, Dr. Lockwood and his expert medical team will clearly outline all of the necessary precautions you need to take, as well as any postoperative limitations you should follow.
