About Fat Transfers with LOWER BLEPHAROPLASTY 

The presence of lower eyelid bags and hollowness can give the appearance of that “tired” look. The underlying cause is the loss of volume or fat in the face as we age. This fat that we all will lose in our face is like a tire losing air. The face can flatten and sag and look deflated and hollow. This, along with other anatomical changes can age us. Dr. Myint performs a very delicate unique procedure of moving the fat bags from the eyelid to the hollow area. This procedure of moving a patient's fat is called a fat transposition (or fat transfer). This procedure can be done by making the cut from inside the eyelid so there are no visible scars and no stitches. The results are fantastic.

Am I A Good Candidate for Fat Transfer Blepharoplasty?

Lower blepharoplasty with fat transfer is a cosmetic surgery that is sought out by both men and women. During the initial consult, treatment options will be provided by Dr. Myint based on your areas of concern that need to be addressed. Generally, ideal candidates have a hollow area below the bottom eyelid. For a more awake look, lower blepharoplasty with fat transfer may be the right surgery for you. If you have bags and a hollow appearance under the eyes, lower blepharoplasty can treat this to provide you with a more youthful, voluminous facial appearance.

What can I expect after a blepharoplasty?

Blepharoplasty can last up to two hours considering whether both eyes or one is treated. After this outpatient surgery, you should plan a few days to rest and avoid strenuous activities. The recovery involves some swelling and bruising for 1-2 weeks. The tape on the eyelid will be removed in few days. A cold compress can help reduce discomfort, swelling, and bruising. The results from eyelid surgery may last years, but even though they are long lasting, aging does not stop. To continue to enhance your surgical outcomes, nonsurgical treatments at Myint Oculo Facial Plastic Surgery such as fillers, peels, and lasers can be paired to create a fresh appearance.
