In order for grafted or transferred fat to survive it requires to establish a new blood supply.
This process called neovascularization takes place during the first few weeks after the procedure.
During this time small capillaries gradually grow into each particle of grafted fat.
The fat will only survive a certain number of days without an active blood supply.
The new ingrowth of capillaries into the grafted fat is susceptible to being damaged from physical movement.
This is why most plastic surgeons recommend not putting pressure on the treated area and minimizing movement.
Different plastic surgeons will have a different recommendations but almost all recommend immobilization and avoidance of pressure after the procedure.
The first two weeks are by far the most important in terms of long-term survival of the fat grafting.
If you have not done so I recommend an in person consultation to first help determine if you are a candidate for this procedure.
You can then have an opportunity to go over specific post operative protocols. Best,
