Who makes a good facial fat transfer candidate?
Facial fat transfer is a highly tolerable procedure, even by those with skin allergies, so most patients seeking facial feminization are good candidates. We simply ask that you be a non-smoker in good mental and physical health, and that you have reasonable expectations for your results based on your private San Francisco consultation.
What will recovery entail?
Significant swelling may persist for up to 7 days, so it may be prudent to take a week off from work as one recovers. Discomfort can be eased by pain medications as well as cold compresses placed on the face. Usually a little makeup can camouflage any bruising or discoloration. Final results may not be apparent till 6 months post-op.
How much does facial fat transfer cost in the Bay Area?
Facial fat transfer fees will vary according to how much fat is harvested and from what part of the body.
