Dark Dents Under Eyes 7 Months After Fat Transfer

I'm a 50 year old woman who had fat tranfer under my eyes 7 mo ago. Had severe bruising for weeks, which changed into dark horizontal lines under my eyes that look slightly dented in. When I smile, the dents are more pronounced. A recent pic of Ivana Trump showed same thing, god help me. Also, my same area was uneven. 3 months ago, the doc tried to correct with another transfer. Things are better, but the dark, horizontal dents are still here. What is this, and can it be fixed?

your situation is difficult to diagnose without seeing you in person. You may wish to seek consultation with a plastic surgeon, or oculoplastic surgeon or dermatologic surgeon.

This is difficult to assess without photographs and this could be post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation or hemosiderin deposits due to bleeding or prolonged ecchymosis.
