Hard lump after fat transfer?
Doctor Answers 5
Thank you for your question and congratulations on your recent procedure! More than likely this hard lump is normal post-op swelling and should subside in the next 8-10 weeks. The most important thing is ruling out infection, so keep an eye on it and if the size continues to increase or you begin running a fever, you will want to be seen by your surgeon right away. If you still have concerns I would recommend scheduling an in-person checkup with the surgeon who preformed your surgery. Good luck!

This sounds like it could be normal. These things will usually smooth out in the first 8-10 weeks. You should consult your physician on your next follow-up. If you begin running a fever you may need to see them right a way to rule out an infection. This is rare.

I appreciate your question.
I would recommend that you contact your surgeon to discuss your concerns at this time.
The best way to assess and give true advice would be an in-person exam.
Please see a board-certified plastic surgeon that specializes in aesthetic and restorative plastic surgery.
Best of luck!

I would see your plastic surgeon for assessment. If this area is getting bigger they should rule out infection and abscess formation but may just represent post-operative swelling.
