Should I put on weight before a fat grafting procedure?

Gaining weight may give more to harvest, but will shrink as you loose weight. It is better after a transfer that your weight remains stable.
Hello and thank you for your question. In general I do not think gaining an excessive amount of weight is a great way to have fat for fat grafting. Often the weight that you gain will also be gained in other areas you may not want to gain weight. I would speak to your surgeon specifically about what you can expect.
