I found your website after typing "diving and fat grafting" into google and fnding a video of yours on a spike.tv website!
I was looking for information on scuba diving risks after plastic surgery procedures, and i see you are a doctor who both performs what i want to have done and is a diver himself!
I found a very intersting article on the DAN website that deals with scuba and plastic surgery procedures (your website won't let me post urls so just add www to the front of this link:)
i'd love to hear some feedback on whether you agree with the general comments in this article and especially their advice on diving after these procedures.
I do have one question though. The article only deals with fat grafting to the lips, which i am reading you aren't a fan of for a start. but they say that it is safe to return to diving after a three week recovery period. Do you think that the same amount of time is valid for fat grafting to the face. what about the region where you wear your mask? doesn't that present risks because of the pressure. I want to consider having fat grafting (as well as breast augmentation), but i want to know what kind of downtime i'm looking at and when it would be safe to resume scuba diving.
eagerly anticipating your response,
