Could I have my own fat injected into the area under my eye? I have very dark circles and would like to know if this would help.
Fat injections to the face have become popular and the procedures are better understood. I have been performing fat injections to the face for several years and am quite comfortable with facial fat injections. The one area that can be somewhat problematic is the area underneath the eyes. Fat injections to the lower lid have to be performed extremely conservatively and with meticulous attention to detail or the eye will appear distorted or fat will be seen as small lumps beneath the skin. Dark circles beneath the eyes may also not be particularly responsive to fat injections and this is a problem that may also need procedures to lighten the pigmented area of the lower lid skin.
