Facial ultrasound and fat grafting
Interesting- why would you be subjecting yourself to facial ultrasound after having a fat grafting procedure? The energy delivered by an ultrasound device is partly related to its frequency, but that does not describe the energetics of ultrasound completely- I don't have an answer for you - my response is a question: why ultrasound to your face? ultrasound to other regions of your body should not negatively impact facial fat grafting viability.
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.
