Fat Transfer

t three weeks post-op, swelling is expected and likely the cause of your lumps. The two sides of your face can respond differently to the same procedure, resulting in more swelling on one side. It can take several months for swelling to resolve and for your body to settle into its final shape, so give yourself time and continue following up with your physician. Best of luck.

Getting Great Results with Fat Transfer and PRP

This could be due to swelling. You can have swelling 3-6 months after your procedure. I do recommend getting PRP injections with your fat transfer to improve results. See an expert. Best, Dr. Emer
