For around two days or less following the facial fat grafting procedure, patients typically experience a degree of redness in the treatment area. As the tissues of the area heal during fat grafting recovery, this redness decreases. Makeup can often be used to camouflage redness.
During this time in fat grafting recovery, it is key to avoid heavy sun exposure. Keeping your healing tissues from experiencing this temperature helps to preserve their health and avoid any complications.
