Too soon after surgery
It is way way way too early for you to be worrying about your fat transfer results. There is significant edema for a couple weeks after surgery. In addition, much of the fat [40-60%] that is injected gets resorbed, and that result is evident after 3 months.
Hold tight and allow your body to heal.
