How much downtime do I need after a facial fat transfer?
The downtime after a facial fat grafting is similar to a filler procedure when we inject multiple areas. So the patients will have some swelling and some bruising the first week. For fat grafting that’s a little more intense than for fillers, so I would say up to 10 days. But at that time, the patients will already have a good result because the fat usually looks great on the face and makes the face look young and plump. So I would say that the first week after the fat grafting is the real downtime one, and then the patients can disguise it very nicely with makeup or with sunglasses or just with things just to disguise the procedure. Nowadays with the masks it’s actually very easy to disguise a facial fat grafting procedure or a filler procedure, but plan about a week to 10 days.
