Hi, I hope you will be happy with your surgery. To be honest, it didn't work for me.:-( I still have hollows, still have malar bags, so it was just waste of money and time. Maybe I was just unlucky. I really hope that you will be happy. Keep informing us pls. Best of luck.:-)

I had upper/lower eyes done with fat injections and mid/lower face and neck lift in March.
Now almost 4 months it does take time for healing. 4 weeks is so soon. I had darker patches around my eyes and a lump under my lower lid. He did fat injections in my nasal/labial folds and wow did it work. He also put injections under the orbital eye bone and my cheeks have been lifted. Swelling is a funny thing and last longer than what we think. So maybe you have more swelling. Fat injections last a lot longer than any filler. They can take it from your hip but my Dr took it from my eyelids. I had mudflap eyelids.
Now my results are truly amazing and so glad I did it.

be careful of steroid injections. they can have issues all of their own.

I had my eyes done on the 15th of May and they look very similar to yours. I thought one eye had been tightened more then the other and was hollow underneath. I also thought the dr had made one eye look bigger then the other. I will have to carefully look at the before pictures to make sure they were not already different in a way that would make this occur. I think the dr should have compensated for these differences if they were. Now he says I can have filler put under one eye. The whole reason for the procedure was to not need filler. Makeup makes everything look better.
