This section of the forum is dedicated to discussions on various surgical techniques for facial rejuvenation, including fat transfer/fat grafting, browlift, blepharoplasty (cosmetic eyelid surgery), facelift, etc. Also, this category includes questions on hand rejuvenation via fat grafting. (Of note, Dr. Lam does not perform body rejuvenation except for hand fat grafting)
pretty quickly. just when you bend over or strain with heavy weights you can create more swelling in the first 2 weeks. also for the first week, you should start with sitting exercises like a stationery bike then build up to full steam because the recovery process albeit limited still can make you feel tired. you can work out any of the areas where i harvested from. there is a great, detailed video on this. go to "videos" tab, then find the album "postoperative video companions", then go find the album within called "postoperative video companions following procedure", go the second page, and find the exercise video. best, sml
