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)
this is not critical. i usually want you to get a good night's sleep. although elevation can help a bit, it is offset by a bad's night rest so just sleep with a couple of pillows if you can't do the recliner reasonably. if not even that, sleep flat. it is no big deal. the key though is avoidance of a lot of salt and bending over (gardening, household work).
