How long will my fat transfer results last?
After undergoing a fat transfer procedure, the receiving areas should appear softer and fuller, giving you a refreshed and rejuvenated appearance. However, an accurate picture of your fat transfer results can take several months.
The quality and longevity of your results will depend on your surgeon’s skills, how the fat was harvested and purified, and how and where it was injected.
A labor-intensive process called micro fat grafting is the best way to ensure that the highest percentage of grafted fat will take. When done successfully, the injected fat establishes a new blood supply from your body and receives the nourishment it needs for survival. When this happens, results are often permanent. However, there may be a percentage of fat that does not take, and you may need touch up procedures.
While results are individual to each patient, fat transfer Before and After photos can help you assess what successful fat transfer results will look like.
