Fat grafting: Post-operative instruction
Fat grafting is a procedure
that unnecessary fat harvested from thigh or tummy
is grafted into flat or depressed area
so both effects as excess fat removal and beautiful profile line
can be achieved.
Major swelling develops between 1~3 day,
and subsides within 7~10 days.
Subsidence of swelling after 2 weeks
should not be mistaken for fat resorption.
Pressure or impacts on the graft sites must be avoided
to prevent any irregularities on the skin surface.
Smoking, drinking, facial massage or hot bath
should be avoided during the first month.
Small redness(1~2 mm) on donor sites is
an indication of normal skin reaction from surgery
which gradually disappears within 3~6 months.
Today, we talked about
the post operative care treatment of fat grafting.
