I’ve heard that fat grafting is great until you gain weight and the fat is deposited very unnaturally in awkward places. Is this true and, if so, what can be done to reduce this undesirable side effect?
Fat grafting can be affected by weight gain, but it doesn’t cause the fat to be deposited in unnatural and awkward places. The fat that has been grafted will expand just like the native fat in your face does when you gain weight. It is not affected any more or less and unless you gain a great deal of weight it isn’t a big deal. You can minimize the side effect by keeping your weight stable through a healthy lifestyle. Just one more reason to be healthy.
