Facial Fat Transfer Recovery Time
Dr. Solomon explains how long patients can expect recovery to take after Fat Transfer to the Face:
Usually it takes about 3-4 days for all the swelling to come down. Maximum, a week, and then after that the face goes back to it’s normal state. Now, they may have, for the week after that, they may have a little bit of swelling where the face is, not swollen swollen, but it looks much fuller than it normally is. And then, probably by the end of the second week, then it really takes the shape that it’s supposed to take, after the second week.
Fat Transfer is a procedure that utilizes a patient’s own fat by transferring it from one area of the body to another area that needs added volume, such as the face or buttocks. Because it utilizes a patient’s’ own fat, fat transfer to the face gives natural looking results and adds youthful contour to the face. Facial fat transfer is now one of Dr. Solomon’s most sought after facial procedure because of it’s natural results and lack of scars that patients would have after a typical facelift procedure. Facial fat transfer is the ultimate nonsurgical facelift, providing natural facial rejuvenation and less downtime.
