Patient Question: I recently had a fat transfer to buttocks. Am I supposed to see the result right away or does it take time for the butt to become full from the fat transfer?
If you follow your post care instructions and keep the tumescent liposuction area very nicely compressed and the fat transfer area not compressed, there is a very visible result in all areas at the next day follow up. During the following two weeks post op the fat transfer area is usually swollen, firm, and sometimes tender. After the two weeks, the swelling and firmness usually goes down in the fat transfer area but the fullness remains.
