Fat Transfer (Body)
SURGERY: This procedure is performed under general anesthesia in an outpatient setting.
AFTER SURGERY: Patients will experience mild to moderate swelling that lasts about 2-3 weeks depending on the amount of fat transferred. Downtime is approximately 2 weeks and patient may resume exercise in approximately 4 weeks.
Fat has a variable amount of reabsorption which can vary from patient to patient. The results are longer lasting than dermal fillers used in the face but the fat may require secondary injections to achieve the desired outcome.
