How long should I expect the bruising to last after a facial fat transfer?
There is always bruising and swelling after a facial fat grafting because we use the fat to inject into the deep tissues of the face and we do have blood vessels there. We get a little bit of normal inflammation from the healing process so everyone gets bruising and swelling. How much there would be is very individual. It depends on if the patient bruises easily, how fair the skin tone is, sometimes it’s almost imperceptible. So I have seen it all. I think it is very individual, but we prepare the patients with some instructions before and after the procedure so we can minimize the bruising and swelling. But it will always be there for about a week to 10 days.
