Fat transfer from stomach, flanks, and back to my butt
It is really difficult to determine the final results in the early recovery period following liposuction and fat transfer/BBL. Swelling really distorts everything, and some areas swell more than others, making it even more difficult to determine. Because the buttock tissue is a fairly confined space, the swelling can cause some temporary distortion and firmness. Also, the girdle, itself, can cause some distortion.
Without the benefit of pre-operative pictures or information on the amount of fat transferred, it is difficult to advise whether your current, early results are as to be expected.
I would definitely recommend following up with your surgeon -- he/she will be best able to determine whether you are on track. Additionally, the major swelling will generally start subsiding during the 2nd through 4th weeks, at which time you will have a better idea about the likely final volume of your buttocks. The minor swelling and post-operative skin remodeling takes many months. And therefore, it takes many months to really know what your final contour will be.
It is great that you have taken such good care with the off-loading. this is critical to having the best results possible! Best of luck to you, and I hope that your final result is what you were looking for.
