What is Under Eye Correction – Fat Repositioning/Removal?
Our under eye is prone to having bags, dark circles, and puffiness, which may make us look tired or aged. Under eye correction that focuses on fat repositioning and removal aims to improve the appearance of your under eye area.
Fat repositioning redistributes the fat pads beneath the eyes. This procedure creates small incisions to access the fat pockets inside the lower eyelid or along the lash line. The surgeon then repositions the fat to achieve a more balanced and youthful contour, eliminating under eye hollows or bulges. This technique aims to create a smoother and rejuvenated appearance.
On the other hand, fat removal procedures focus on eliminating excess fat deposits under the eyes. The most common technique for this is lower blepharoplasty. During the procedure, incisions are made inside the lower eyelid or along the lash line to access and remove the excess fat. This helps to reduce puffiness and create a more refreshed look.
These under eye correction procedures can be performed individually or in combination, depending on the patient’s specific needs and desired outcome. The goal is to achieve natural-looking results by addressing the underlying causes of under eye concerns.
What is Under Eye Correction – Fat Repositioning/Removal?
As our skin ages, the muscle and fat under our eyes start to sag or droop, making our under eyes look baggy.
So if you look tired, have dark circles, have excessive fat under the eyes, or have a love band (aegyosal), you need fat repositioning. The procedure relocates the fat and muscle upwards to give you a younger and livelier appearance.
Meanwhile, fat removal is the best procedure for you if you have a dark circle and fat protrusion under your eyes. The fat has to be removed or reshaped to have a fresh and brighter appearance.
Besides these concerns, it is important to note that every individual is unique, so a consultation with your cosmetic surgeon is necessary to determine if you are a good candidate. Your surgeon will check on some factors to tailor your best treatment plan.
