Aging slowly causes the tissues of the face to sag and wrinkle, and many regions can become hollow. The fat transfer procedure takes fat from one region of the body and uses it to volumize the face, reducing wrinkles in the process. Fat transfer recovery is an important step in this procedure.
Following your facial fat transfer, the targeted regions of the face will be somewhat puffy and swollen. Once several weeks of fat transfer recovery have gone by, this swelling will have reduced, leaving a naturally volumized appearance without wrinkles and folds.
The amount of time swelling takes to ameliorate will be partially determined by the size of the filled regions.
