Fat grafting to lower eyes. Will puffiness go away?
Doctor Answers 2
Swelling after fat grafting to lower eyes.
Without clinical before and after photos I can not make any specific recommendations. Lower eyelids sometimes hold swelling longer than the rest of the face but swelling should be gone by three months. I recommend against using steroids in or near any area treated with fat transfer. Low energy ultrasound that avoids placing the transducer over the globe can be useful.
Encouraging Recommendations for Swelling after Fat Transfer--Venus Legacy
It's still too soon for your final results. This is likely to still be swelling. Swelling can last 3-6 months after fat transfer. Using radiofrequency devices like venus legacy/exilis and getting PRP injections can help improve the results. Best, Dr. Emer.
