Caution after surgery
Medication and Ointment.
· Clinics will prescribe medicines mostly consisting of antibiotics, digestive medicine, and antiphlogistics. Additional costs for medication may be required.

Right After the Operation
· It may be usual to have leakage of the surgical liquid bloody surgical liquid coming out after the surgery. Please wipe gently with a gauze or a clean tissue.
· Applied hydrocolloid dressing which is called ‘Duoderm’ on the injected area should be maintained for 2 days. You can remove it after(You do not have to replace it to a new one in case it falls off).
· Either a hot or a cold pack massage is not recommended since it may cause a low engraftment rate. Please avoid wearing a hat or glasses for 4 weeks while injected fat settles.
· Please do contact us immediately if you have pain accompanied by heat or getting worse.
Swelling, pain, or senses (Individual symptoms may vary)
· There may be a difference of swelling each side of the face and the bottom part temporarily may seem a bit puffier due to swelling subsides from the higher to the lower area. It might seem to have a bumpy facial surface or asymmetric.
· There may be a lot of swelling till the 3rd~4th day. Most of the swelling will get better within a week depends on the individual.
· The surface of the area might seem bumpy while blood vessels start to grow in grafted fat and swelling goes down.
· It is normal to have pain comes and goes at intervals.
· You may have a pricking or pulling pain around the fat extracted or injected area. This is totally normal and will get better over time.
· Fat extracted area(abdomen, thigh, or etc.) might become a bit hard which will get back to normal after 1~3 months.
· Bruising resolves within around 2~3 weeks or more.
Stitch out and Wound care
· The scar will look a bit red from the 6th week to the 6th month which will get better after(depends on the individual).
Applying ointment over the incision after the stitches are removed is helpful for quick recovery.
· Depends on the operation method, you might need disinfection or antibiotic injection when you visit the clinic the day after the operation.
· Suture Removal will be on the 10th day(consider the day after the surgery as the 1st day).
Enhanced recovery post-operation
· Please avoid having a strict diet, drinking, smoking, or getting too much stress since those impact on the engraftment rate. In addition, using too much of facial muscles for expression should be avoided as well for a month after the surgery.
· Rubbing or pressing the fat injected area may change the shape which should be avoided. It is possible for you to have a meridian massage or press pimples out that anything gives a strong impact on the surgical area after 2~3 months.
· You might have skin trouble such as pimple depends on your skin condition.
· Partial transferred fat may be absorbed and it will take about 2 months(depends on the individual) for engraftment. Thus, revision surgery is recommended after 2~3 months.
· We recommend you to avoid spicy or strong tasting foods as well as tough or hard texture foods for 2 weeks after the operation since those affect the facial muscles and fat.
· It is helpful to reduce swelling to use 2~3 soft pillows together when you sleep after the operation.
· You can wash your face after the 2nd day and shower after the 5th day avoiding water going directly to the fat extracted area.
· You can put on makeup after the 7th day of the operation.
· Light walking is recommended to encourage healing.
· High-impact activities(such as swimming, gym, climbing), strenuous exercise, sauna, Korean dry sauna must be avoided for a week as those slow down healing process.
