Botox vs. Fat Injection Under Eye
Cosmetic Eye Procedues
Depending on several details you might benefit from fat transfer and/or fillers. Would have to see you to give further suggestions
In general- fillers or fat transfer may be useful for fat loss, but in some cases these can exacerbate the issue depending if you have any protruding fat pockets under the eyes. Lasers can be helpful for wrinkling under the eyes as well.
Do not forget the importance of healthy daily living- untreated allergies, not sleeping well, stress, and poor diet can all show under the eyes quickly.
If it is severe ( I can't see the photos)- you may decide to have a lower blepharoplasty with an oculoplastic surgeon.

Cosmetic improvements of the face, including the eyelids takes a full spectrum understanding of the art and science of Botox, fillers, peels, lasers, fat grafting, skin, anatomy and surgery.
In general, Botox nor fat grafting are recommended under the eyes. Botox may weaken the muscle creating the line or wrinkle but also allow swelling or the fat bags to protrude and round the lower lid appearance.
I have found survival of fat under the eyelid to be unreliable and lead to bumpiness or nodularity.
Fillers may smooth or add volume.
Peels and lasers may tighten or exfoliate the skin to create smoothness.
Surgery will redrape the skin and remove skin excess.
Each takes talent and skill. Please obtain consultation from a Board Certified Plastic Surgeon or Ophthalmologist who is well experienced in all these options so they match what is best for you.
All the best!
