Fat grafting and fat loss
Hello and thank you for your question! Everyone will handle fat transfer differently. How much fat is lost after fat injection will depend on how each individual's body heals, is the person a smoker, how is the fat harvested, how is it placed and how well the directions of your plastic surgeon are followed. With this being said...I think its safe to say that at minimum you will lose about 30% of fat but can even lose up to 50%. Some of the early result is not only from the fresh fat present but also from swelling. Hope this helps!
