How Long Before Final Results from Fat Transfer Cheeks and Lips?

          By 6 weeks, you are seeing much of the final result, but it may take 3 to 6 months to realize a stable result.                                                                                                           Kenneth Hughes, MD                                                                                                           Los Angeles, CA

Fat transfer for the face

Dear mariaz1994,

  1. A fat transfer to the face can take 2-3 weeks to heal and for most of the swelling to come down
  2. The final results are apparent by about the 6 month mark

Best regards,
