How can I help my results last with a facial fat transfer?

Improving fat survival
With good technique, most patients get a very nice result with one round of fat transfer. Aside from using gentle technique and ensuring good spreading of the fat within a given area to help achieve good blood supply to the fat, there have not been studies that have been convincing for use of other ingredients or techniques. That said, if a patient seems to have limited results from a first round (which is very rare) we will offer PRP to add to the second round.
Increasing fat survival
The less icing the better it is for fat survival after fat transfer
There is not too much to do after fat transfer. Icing, which is routine after most facial rejuvenate procedures... is usually not recommended after fat transfer to the face. In fact, not icing improves fat survival in some studies. Follow the instructions given by your surgeon for best results.
