4 weeks post op fat transfer to tear trough; still in pain and feeling tightness? (Photos)

Fat transfer after care
At this stage (4 wks) post op patience is your best friend. My recommedations:
1. See your surgeon. We all have small tricks to help with post op edema
2. My trick: Salt restricted diet for 3 wks (less than 1000mg/day). This can significantly reduce the swelling. Possibly to the point of you being happy.
3. You are young. You have beautiful skin. This will even improve after the fat transfer and the skin of the tear trough should tighten. I suspect the best is yet to come.
Hope this helps.
