Your Fat Injection Procedure
We will do everything in our power to help you feel informed and relaxed on the day of your procedure. After you arrive, you will meet with Dr. Min and with your anesthesiologist. Once any questions you have are answered, you will be given medication to help you relax.
You will be brought into the surgical suite, where you will be prepped for surgery and given a general anesthetic or a local with sedation. The procedure usually takes 1-2 hours.
You will want to be sure to arrange for someone to pick you up after your fat injection procedure in Bellevue.
After Your Fat Injection Procedure
You are still our patient after you leave, and we will be there for you as you recover to answer any questions you may have and advise you on any side effects you may be feeling after a Bellevue fat injection. Patients can generally return home within a matter of hours.
Patients can begin moving around right away and resume light exercise after a few days. Most patients return to work after a day or two, but you should avoid strenuous activity for 3-5 days.
