Dr. Bryce Cowan explains what the patient should expect after a fat grafting treatment in terms of results, as well as the side-effects that patients can expect following the procedure.

Patients should expect some swelling and bruising at the surgical sites for a could of days following the procedure. After this subsides, the patient should notice a volume increase at the surgical site. This will be monitored for several months to ensure that the grafted fat survives, and is not reabsorbed, which sometimes happen. In this case, a retreatment may be necessary. Once successful, however, the fat grafts are very long-lasting, far outlasting any synthetic filler that is currently available.
