Fat Transfer Facts--Add PRP for best results
I don't recommend radiofrequency treatments for this, but do recommend antihistamines, diuretics and oral steroids to help swelling. Swelling after fat transfer can last 3-6 months but often is just a few weeks. I recommend following up with your Dr. about after care. I also recommend prp to maintain results. Best, Dr. Emer
Radiofrequency treatment for swelling
Radiofrequency treatments can potentially affect fat weather grafted or ungrafted.
I would not recommend this treatment to treat swelling.
There's no great treatment to control swelling other than anti-inflammatory steroids.
Time is the cure all for swelling and there's really no good substitute.
I recommend that you be patient and wait for your final results.
