I'm 18-year old female and I've recently heard about fat transfer but I'm afraid of "puffy eyes" after surgery. Is it really a proper solution for me? I'm looking forward to response.

Restylane or Belotero best for your under-eye circles
Judging by your photo, you need volume restoration under your eyes to correct your under-eye dark circles and hollows. A hyaluronic acid filler such as Restylane or Belotero will give more precise results than fat, and is completely adjustable or reversible if needed. Look for a Board Certified Dermatologist or Plastic Surgeon who offers these filler Injections through a blunt cannula as this will reduce or eliminate your risk of bruising.

No eyelid surgery either.
Your best option here is under eye fillers with Restylane. Please if you decide to have this treatment, find a highly experienced injector who also does mid face surgery. The level of experience means you will pay more for the service. This is really not a place to look for the cheapest service. You are looking for the safest and best possible treatment.

At your age group I would recommend starting with some lightening creams or under eye products like teamine. Would wait on any surgery. Doesn't look like you need added fat graft right now
