Fat Transfer: Q&AAsk a Question
Fat injections under eyes do not work so far...
I had a transconjectival upper and lower blepharoplasthy three years ago. This left a lot of loose skin and hollowness under my eyes, and uneven upper eyelids. So : I had (6 months ago) bilateral lower skin pinch (the left side has very bad scar even 6 months later) and upper left additional blepharoplasthy to make the upper eyelids even on both sides; I also had at the same time upper and lower fat injections (3cc each) on both eyes. Now the upper eyelids do look just a little better than before, but the lower right is still hollow – 6 months today after the fat injections. The surgeon tells me to wait a year, that the fat will grow its blood vessels and it will fill the hollow part. I am very skeptical about that.. Any input will be appreciated…
