I use dmso for swelling and bruise from the day after fat grafting to resolve a furrow of the body. Can dmso damage new fat and prevent engraftment of new fat? Thank you
Can DMSO after Fat Grafting damage or prevent engraftment of new fat?

Thank you for posting your question. Please consult with your physician as each physician has his/her own specific post-op instructions for patients to follow. Best of luck.
when I was in medical school, we used DMSO to penetrate tissues with wax or whatever preservative compounds for histological analysis. One of the properties of DMSO is that it penetrates skin incredibly efficiently which is why we often use it as a carrier to other active ingredients. I would worry that the DMSO could affect fat cells regardless of whether or not the fat has engrafted.
