Under Eye Fat Grafting
Dark, hollowed-out spaces under your eyes can make you appear worn out, tired and old. These circles, found between the lower eyelid and the top of the cheek, are called the tear troughs. Deep tear troughs can be genetic or brought about by aging. If you have excess fat beneath your eyes (eye bags), it can also create hollows that age you. Under eye fat grafting can treat all three types of tear trough problems.
As a safe and natural type of facial filler, under eye fat grafting adds volume under the eye, reducing the hollow. The delicately raised surface also changes the way light bounces off the under eye area, reducing shadows and the appearance of circles. The area around eye bags can be volumized, evening out the area and disguising the puffy areas beneath the eye.
What is Fat Grafting?
Fat grafting is a surgical procedure which takes fat from your body, usually your abdomen, purifies it and then injects it into an area requiring volume. Under eye fat grafting can minimize lines and wrinkles and treat crow’s feet. It can also improve smile lines (nasolabial folds), hollow cheeks and dark under eye circles. It is also used to treat a variety of other concerns.
The incision required to harvest the fat is very small and the injection site does not require stitches. There is no risk of allergic reaction since the fat comes from your own body. Unlike synthetic fillers, fat grafting provides a permanent solution to improve contours and refresh your appearance.
The Best Under Eye Fat Grafting Experience
Fat grafting requires a deep understanding of the underlying facial structure. Your surgeon must have experience in the proper placement of the graft, as well as the necessary volume required for natural-looking results. As a three-dimensional treatment, it is not only about anatomy; your surgeon must also have an artistic eye to ensure the most refined appearance.
