One of the hallmarks of the aging process is the deflation and loss of volume in the midfacial tissues. This loss of volume is primarily due to atrophy of facial fat as shown in many studies looking at this topic. The face has many different compartments of fat and connective tissue that keep them elevated and help contribute to a youthful, volumized appearance. For some patients who have experienced significant facial fat atrophy, our Salt Lake City facial fat grafting and transfer surgery may be an option.

Fat Transfer Surgery for Eye Rejuvenation

Fat transfer surgery, also known as fat grafting or fat injections, is a procedure used to restore volume to areas of the face, including the under-eye area and eyelids. This technique involves harvesting fat from one part of the body, typically the abdomen or thighs, and injecting it into areas of the face that have lost volume due to aging or other factors. Dr. Kian Eftekhari specializes in fat transfer surgery for eye rejuvenation at Eyelid Center of Utah, offering patients a natural and long-lasting solution for addressing hollows, dark circles, and other signs of aging around the eyes.

The Procedure

During a fat transfer procedure, Dr. Eftekhari begins by harvesting fat from the donor site using a gentle liposuction technique. The fat is then processed to purify and prepare it for injection. Once prepared, Dr. Eftekhari carefully injects the fat into the targeted areas around the eyes using small cannulas. This technique allows for precise placement of the fat grafts to achieve the desired aesthetic outcome.

Benefits of Fat Transfer for Eye Rejuvenation

Fat transfer surgery offers several benefits for eye rejuvenation, including:

  • Natural Results: Because the transferred fat is harvested from your own body, it integrates seamlessly with the surrounding tissues, providing natural-looking results.
  • Long-Lasting Effects: Unlike temporary fillers, fat transfer provides long-lasting volume enhancement to the under-eye area.
  • Customized Treatment: Dr. Eftekhari can tailor the fat transfer procedure to address your specific concerns and achieve optimal results for your unique facial anatomy.

Recovery and Results

After fat transfer surgery, patients may experience some swelling and bruising in the treated areas, which typically subsides within a week or two. It may take several weeks for the transferred fat to settle into its final position and for patients to fully appreciate the results of the procedure. As the swelling resolves, patients will notice a smoother, more youthful appearance around the eyes, with improved volume and contour.
