Fat Transfer for Sunken Eyes, Dark Circles and Fine Lines?
- Asked by vany in new zealand

Good day, I am in my mid 20's and I suffer from sunken eyes, dark circles and fine lines around my eyes. I am very disheartened by the fine lines especially. I am afaid to smile and look people in the face because it's so obvious. I have been comptemplating about a fat transfer however, I am so afaid that everyone will notice the change in my appearance, as well as the possibility that it might not be done properly. Additionally, I am not too sure how long the results will last. What shoud I do? Is having fat transfer a good decision?
Only have composite fat grafting not fat injection for dark hollows under eyes
Fat injections around the eye are risky and often leave lumps and bumps because injected fat uses cells that are injured during harvest and injection through a syringe.
Hollows under eyes, dark circles under eyes
Dear Vany, you ask a very good question! Many people (of all ages ) have a deep hollow under their eyes and this contributes to a tired appearance. The finer liners occur when you smile- these are 'normal' but bother some people- they are harder to correct long term- a good remedy is botulinum toxin.
With Warm Regards,

Fat Transfer for Sunken Eyes, Dark Circles, and Fine Lines
You can have Restylane injected first to see if you like the effect, and get used to how it looks. Once you are pleased with temporary filler, you can then schedule the fat transfer.
Fat transfer performed properly will last permanently, hence you need to find an expert.
Be well, good day.
