This patient was concerned about "bags" under his eyes. Repositioned the orbital fat in his lower eyelids for a more youthful and less tired look. This technique preserves the fat to avoid a hollowed look that can be the result when the fat is removed .

We're able to reposition fat and simultaneously tighten the skin, all without visible incisions." Those protruding pouches of flesh under the eye are most noticeable in the morning, when fluids are retained. But mother nature didn't give anyone too much eye fat. Traditional techniques of fat removal eventually lead to a hollow, sunken look. So instead of taking it out, the surgeon can use the fatty tissue to hide the bony orbital rim. Through an incision hidden inside the lid, the fat is repositioned and sutured into place. The result is a smooth, scar-free lower lid.
