Dr Lam. I've posted before, and you always give very clear answers. So here's another question! I'm interested in what happens between the 1 week and 3 week (or a month) stage of recovery after fat transfer.
It seems that you've observed your patients are often still "too swollen" after one week. Why do they find they start liking their results at 3 weeks/1 month? Is it because even more trapped fluid leaves the disturbed tissuein this time? That some more of the fat dissipates in this time? What causes this?
In my experience (but i stress to other readers, you did not operate on me!) I was still too swollen and looked odd at one week. My face looked wide, particularly at the top of my cheeks. (My surgeon told me this was still swelling and i should not be concerned.)
Thanks Dr Lam. Keep up the good work!
