My weight has always fluctuated between 140-170 pounds over the years (Up and down). If I get Microfat grafting and I lose the weight I assume the fat will be gone when I'm thin. But if I gain weight back, will the new fat continue to grow again in the same place that the doctor put it?
Will Micro Fat Grafting Last if my Weight Fluctuates from Fat to Thin?

Fat injections effect persist despite dieting
Fat grafting and weight fluccuation
If the weight fluccuation is reasonable you should have no problem. Sigificant weight loss may affect the grafted fat. What exactly happens to the grafted fat is not fully known if it will decrease with weight loss or weight gain. Do your surgery when you are stable in weight
Fat as the Origin
Fat will behave the same way as its donor site. Meaning if you have fat from your belly transferred to the face and the gain weight in your abdomen with time, your face WILL gain weight. This is part of the genetic programming found in each fat cell. This makes fat good and bad. Good in the way that it can last forever. Bad that it can be quite impossible to predict what actually happens to it.
