How Long Does It Take for Fat Injections to Settle?
I had fat injections with 22cc's between both cheeks 3 months ago. My face was very swollen the first 2 weeks before it slowly started to subside. It looks great now except the upper portion of my face has a wideness to it. Doctor recommended massaging the high/wide points, saying fat will still be re-absorbed at 3 months.
My cheeks seem to have retained most of the fat. Or is it absorbing fat very slowly? I'm concerned about the wide angles to my upper cheeks. Will this go away as the fat settles? Thanks.
