Dark Circles Under Eyes Treatment
One of the most common reasons people seek out a plastic surgeon is for under eye circle treatment. Some people have naturally darker circles or hollows under their eyes, and dark circles can appear at any age. Additionally, as we grow older, we lose fat and collagen. This can create even more significant circles. For some people, the volume loss is uneven, and the under eye darkness can be caused by excess fat, or “eye bags.” Eye bags can also form as the structures under the eye thins, and fat within the eye socket moves forward. Azouz Plastic & Cosmetic Surgery has effective dark circle under eye treatments available.
Treat Dark Circles and Hollows with Fat Grafting
The tired appearance caused by dark or drooping lower eyes can be aging. It can leave you looking chronically tired or even make you appear unwell. One dark circle undereye treatment is fat grafting. Also called facial fat transfer, this procedure uses liposuction to take fat from another area of your body. The crucial fat and stem cells are separated in a centrifuge and then injected into your lower eye area.
A safe and all-natural form of facial filler, fat grafting addresses dark circles by providing a small fat pad that provides volume. This volume reduces the hollows and creates a higher surface for light to reflect, minimizing shadows and circles. Fat grafting can also address some types of eye bags. It can plump up the tissues around the eyes and disguise under eye puffiness.
Blepharoplasty for Eye Bags
Over time, the effect of gravity causes skin and underlying tissues to sag and move downward. This force can pull the skin under the eye, making eye bags even more prominent. Extremely large or droopy eye bags cannot be corrected by fat grafting, but they can be fixed with lower eyelid blepharoplasty.
This type of dark circle under eye treatment is sometimes called a lower eyelid lift. Small incisions are made below the lash line. Precise amounts of fat and excess skin are removed from the area. By only removing the necessary amount of fat and ensuring it is situated properly, you are left with youthful contours and a completely refreshed appearance.
