Pain and discomfort can last for a maximum of 2 to 3 weeks. Immediately after the surgery, the hands and/or decolleté will be quite swollen and can feel a bit bruised. About a week to ten days after surgery, you will feel confident about going out and resuming a normal social life. If any bruises have developed, they might remain visible for a little longer but you can hide them reasonably well with a good concealer. After 4 to 6 weeks approximately 80% of the bruising and swelling will have disappeared. After 3 months you can get a good impression of what the final result will be.
After a few days after surgery, you will be able to perform your usual activities. Long walks should be limited, as well as strains and sports, for two weeks.
Complications related to the procedure are rare and, when occurring, consisting of: infection, hematoma, asymmetry and irregular skin surface.
These complications, are rare and can easily be corrected with no major problems. Although this is a low-complication risk procedure, antibiotics are prescribed to prevent and cure any possible infection. Possible irregularities or asymmetry can be easily treated with a second session with local anesthesia three months after the lipofilling procedure.
