My 38 year old patient was complaining of appearing tired and her eye make up was no longer able to cover up the bags and darkness under her eyes. I suggested she undergo a transconjunctival approach to the lower eyelids, to remove the excess fat pockets which was worse on the right, then I also suggested a facial fat transfer to the upper cheeks to improve the darkness and hollows and I suggest CO2 laser skin resurfacing around the eyes to improve the fine lines, wrinkles, tighten skin and raise the brow and upper eyelid skin slightly. Here she is 4 months post op. Her under eye bags are gone, the skin is soft and smooth in appearance and the shadows are removed from the fat transfer. Even her upper eyelids appear more open and brows appear elevated from the CO2 laser skin resurfacing around the eyes and brow area. All the procedures were performed under local anesthesia and took about 2 hours to complete.
