Recovering from Fat Transfer Surgery

Doctor Instructions Atlanta GA

Do you dream of removing excess fat from one part of your body and having it transposed to another area that’s in need of some plump?  Dream no longer – with fat transfer surgery, we can do just that!

During this operation, unwanted fat is removed from your abdomen, buttocks, or upper thighs. Then it’s injected into other parts of your body – like your face, filling it out in all the right places.

Your recovery can have an effect on the final results of your surgery, so you should carefully follow all of your post-op instructions.

Compression Garment

Our team will instruct you on how long you should wear the compression garment that’s sent home after surgery. Compression garments help provide our body support and they minimize swelling.

Pain Medication

You may experience some pain and notice bruising for two weeks after surgery. If you were prescribed pain medication, then you can take is as needed as long as you don’t exceed the amount per day or individual dosage. Certain strong pain medications can affect your ability to drive. To avoid an upset stomach, they should be taken with food.  

Be Patient

Recovery will take time.  Don’t be in a hurry to get back to your normal routine. Manual labor and exercise should be avoided for as long as your surgeon recommends. They’ll let you know once you’re cleared to resume certain activities.
