Thank you for posting your question. Transferred fat does not move around the body. What you saw was normal swelling after any procedure done on the face. Since the skin surrounding the eyes is really thin, it is very easy to get swelling at that area. I hope your swelling has some down a lot now. Best of luck.
Can fat from fat grafting move down to the eyes?
Fat grafting is not like some synthetic fillers that can be pushed out from their original injection site. As long as the grafting procedure was performed correctly it is not going to move after the procedure. Swelling from the procedure will spread into softer areas or follow gravity and move down. This is temporary.

This could be swelling after your procedure which could take a few weeks to subside. If you're concerned I would contact your doctor. Best, Dr. Emer
