I had scar revision performed along with pearl fat grafting a little over 3 weeks ago. The pearl fat graft was done because I have a specific area underneath the scar that was raised above the surrounding area. So, my doctor was supposed to excise the fat from the puffy area and implant it under the scar where it was slightly indented.
I do think that the scar will come out much better but my cheek is still puffy where the fat was supposed to be excised. I'm afraid that he did not remove enough fat to make a difference, or there is a different problem. While the rest of my scar is healing nicely, the puffiness is still prominent in that small area. Is there a way to remove the fat in that part of my cheek without causing more scarring? Could there be another explanation for the puffiness that won't go away? Thank you.
