Possible swelling and bruising in the injection site will resolve within a week, and it will be possible to return to daily work a few days after the fat injection.


About 20 to 40 percent of the injected fat is absorbed within 6 months after surgery, and the rest will remain permanently transplanted. Usually, in the first stage of injection, more volume is injected than the required amount of fat to achieve the desired result and the need for re-injection of fat is eliminated.
