Post Operative Care for Fat Grafting
Dear Fat Grafting Patient from San Jose, CA
Applying warm pad once a day few days after fat grafting will not damage your fat cells. But there is no reason to do that. Immediately after fat grafting, cold and hot compresses are not recommended.

Warm not hot compresses can be ok a couple of days after fat injecitons
As long as you are not doing this in the first few days after the fat injecitons and not applying very hot heat for too long, and making sure it's warm not hot, then you should be ok . Do get this approved by your surgeon.
NO reason to apply heat, can do more harm, than good. Follow your doctor's instructions.
