PLASTIC SURGERY CENTER OF NC
Now that you’re through your fat transfer procedure, it’s time to focus on your wellness during the recovery phase.
This procedure is done in conjunction with other surgical procedures most of the time in the surgery center. Please follow instructions for bathing, activity, medications etc. from the other sheets you have been given. You will have small puncture type incisions where the fat was injected as well as possible small puncture sites where the fat was harvested.
- Do not massage or apply pressure to treated areas.
- Bruising and swelling is normal.
- Blood tinged fluid from the donor sites is normal and to be expected. Apply gauze to those areas. You may also have a bra or a binder in place for the area the fat was removed from.
If you have any concerns or questions, call us at 336-765-8620. We have a doctor on call 24 hours a day.
