The persistence of fat and the duration of the results depend on various reasons, including:

The fat survives better when placed in areas with abundant blood supply, which is why the fat transfer to the face has been so successful.
The face contains lots and lots of blood vessels which allows the fat to stay in giving you long lasting results.
If the treatment is for a large area, you may need two or more sessions.
Not all transferred fat cells will survive, only about 70% of them will remain while 30% is absorbed by the body.
This occurs only in the first weeks after surgery when the injected fat cells have not yet settled.
The transplanted fat cells remain after angiogenesis, so the results are permanent, but it is very important that you maintain a healthy weight so as not to experience a loss of facial volume.
