I'm about eleven days out from fat grafting around the orbital rim and cheek area (i'm male), and I've healed very nicely, minimal bruising and swelling anymore. Is it ok for me to return to gym at this point? I watched your postoperative video where you caution about people bumping you whilst working out etc. but assuming that that is not an issue, can i do some light running and lift weights (not too heavy)? Also is swimming ok (I wear goggles when i swim so i'm wondering if the pressure they exert on the orbital area is too great)?
Also, with regards to being bumped or knocked in the area where fat grafting was performed, is the actual concern that the fat can be shifted, or is it that the fat may "die" off (for lack of better terminology) or is it a different concern entirely?
Thanks so much for your time
