Can a Facial Fat Transfer Help Improve Sunken Eyes?

By: Dr. Matthew Adam Graham


Sunken eyes, often accompanied by shadows and hollowness, can make you look tired or older than you are. This loss of volume is a natural part of the aging process, as our skin loses elasticity and fat deposits diminish. But there are options to achieve a refreshed and more youthful appearance. At Wellspring Medical Spa & Aesthetics in Thomasville, GA, Dr. Matthew Adam Graham offers facial fat transfer, a procedure that can effectively address sunken eyes.

What is facial fat transfer?

Facial fat transfer is a minimally invasive cosmetic surgery technique that utilizes your own body fat to add volume and correct contours in various areas of the face. During the procedure, Dr. Graham will first harvest fat from a donor area, such as the abdomen or thighs, using advanced BeautiFill laser technology. This innovative technology gently liquefies fat cells, making them easier to extract while minimizing trauma and blood loss. The harvested fat is then meticulously processed and purified to remove unwanted elements. Finally, Dr. Graham strategically injects the purified fat into targeted areas of the face, like the temples, cheeks, and the under-eye region.

How can facial fat transfer in Thomasville, GA improve sunken eyes?

Sunken eyes occur when the supporting tissues and fat pads beneath the eyes weaken and diminish. This loss of volume creates a hollowed appearance and can exacerbate the appearance of under-eye circles and bags. Facial fat grafting, as it's sometimes called, can effectively address these concerns by restoring lost volume in the under-eye area. Dr. Graham's careful injection techniques allow for precise placement of the fat cells, filling out hollowness and smoothing the under-eye region. This can significantly improve the appearance of sunken eyes, creating a brighter, more youthful, and well-rested look.

What are the benefits of facial fat transfer for sunken eyes?

  • Natural-looking results: Because you are using your own fat, the body readily accepts the transferred cells, minimizing the risk of rejection and ensuring a natural look.
  • Long-lasting effects: Unlike temporary fillers, transferred fat cells can survive and thrive in their new location, restoring long-lasting volume.
  • Improved skin quality: The area where fat was transferred can promote collagen production, potentially improving overall skin quality and texture.
