Hi There 15 months ago, I had some fat transferred, from my thigh and put into my cheeks and forehead.It was O.K, although every so often, my cheeks would become quite rosy,and i would experience tingling sensation.I would cover the "rosy glow",with a concealer,and after 3/4 days it would go away.This lasted on and off for a few months,and then stopped.Three months ago it returned with a vengance. My forehead,and down the sides of my face are the worst,I have moisturized,but to no effect, Panic !

I would agree that in the dozens of people I have seen after facial fat grafting that the skin responses are beneficial. I have not observed dryness.
Skin Changes After Fat Transfer Usually Beneficial
Skin dryness after fat transfer
Sorry to hear about your experience after fat transfer. Typically, fat transfers do not cause dryness of the skin. I would recommend you consult the doctor who performed your surgery for an in-person assessment as there may be another cause of your skin dryness. Good luck!

Fat transfer and skin quality
The most current information is showing that when fat is harvested and centrifuged, the lower component of fat has more of a concentration of stem cells. When this fat is then transferred to the face the appearance is that of an improvement in the quality of the overlying skin. So, a lot depends on how the fat was harvested, separated and injected. There are a lot of variables. I would discuss this with your plastic surgeon.
