Temporal Fat Transfer
Q: Dr. Eppley, Could you help me with a problem I have ? Somebody told me that you are a top doctor. I can´t reach my surgeon. I got a facial fat transfer to the temples ( 2ml each side ).
The day after the operation, I was in the city and I walked around slowly for 3 hours .
Now I am afraid that it was too long and the fat could have migrated downwards, due to the vibrations from walking slowly.
Could that fat migrate / move one day after the OP due to walking for 3 hours ?
I hope you can calm me down.
A: Such fat migration is not a phenomenon I have seen. There is the inevitable occurrence swelling from the surgery which takes 2 to 3 days to reach its fullest extent which would always occur lower on the face due to gravity.
