Lumps after fat injections
Fat injections around the eyes can be troublesome as you are experiencing one of the issues that can develop. Sometimes direct excision is needed, and sometimes just breaking up the scar tissue can help.
Fat transfer under eyes
this is a classic problem with fat grafting. It is difficult. The first thing to do is to see if more filler will hide the bumps. The last is surgery. See a surgeon with experience here
Hello and thank you for your question. I recommend that you seek
consultation with a qualified board-certified plastic surgeon who can evaluate
you in person. You may need the fat grafts to be removed or refined.
Best wishes and good luck.
