Can I drive home after a Facial Fat Transfer?
So a facial fat grafting can be done under general anesthesia or local anesthesia. If it’s done under local anesthesia, the patients can even drive themselves home after the procedure. So as long as patients are not taking narcotics or they have not undergone a general anesthesia, they can drive right after the procedure. Otherwise, they need to wait. For general anesthesia it’s about 48 hours and then if they are taking narcotics like the strong pain pills, they need to wait 24 hours after the last pill. But usually patients don’t feel a lot of discomfort, so it’s very common for them to be driving the same day or the next day.
