Thank you for posting your question. At 8 days post procedure, swelling is normal and expected. Depend on individual differences, it takes several weeks to months for swelling to gradually go away. After any procedure, your body needs time to readjust and settle into the final shape. Be patient and continue following up with your physician. Best of luck.

Swelling is common after your procedure and should start to resolve in a few days. I recommend contacting your Dr. about your concerns and aftercare. I like to use PRP with lipofilling for best results. Best, Dr. Emer
