Will Ultrasound Treatment Negatively Affect Facial Fat Grafting?

Will ultrasound treatment at 3mhz negatively affect facial fat grafting?  Can it /positively/ affect fat grafting? Having trouble finding any info online. Thanks.

External ultrasound after fat injections

External ultrasound is occasionally recommended to reduce inflammation and soreness after liposuction. I would not chance this energy, although not a high energy, to decrease the "health" of the new fat cells, but I have not read a study indicating the effects of such treament.

I doubt you will find much meaningful information in this respect.

Most likely there will be no dramatic change but  your guess is as good as mine.
