Fat Transfer to the Lower Lid to get Rid of Dark Circles
It depends on what is the cause of the dark circles. If the circles are a shadow effect from fat loss in the area, then yes fat injection and filler to that area may help. Injecting around the eyes needs to be done very carefully by an experienced physician since the skin in that area is very thin and unforgiving. if the dark circles are due to hyper pigmentation, then it will unlikely help your problem. Instead, a laser treatment, chemical peel or bleaching cream may help. I suggest you consult with a board certified facial plastic surgeon to have your dark circles addressed properly. Good luck.
Fat to Lower Eyelids for Dark Circles
Fat, which I prefer because it lasts longer, or fillers can be injected in the lower eyelid margin to improve the lid contour. It will decrease the darkness if this is secondary to shadows but will not change the skin color.
