Dimples and dark lines on the back of the eyelid are problems that many people face with age, and the best way to solve them is fat injection.
What is needed before injecting fat behind the eyelid and under the eyebrows
Injecting fat into the back of the eyelid is one of the best and most non-invasive ways to eliminate dimples and dark lines behind the eyelid. In this method, fat is removed from the body so that the skin behind the eyelid becomes open, transparent, and voluminous and is injected into the desired area.
With the fat injection method, the lines created on the skin and its opacity are eliminated. Because the fat is removed from the person’s own body, in addition, due to more excellent compatibility, there is no need for the body to reject it, a better effect on the body.
Injection of fat behind the eyelid to remove dark circles around the eyes
Dark circles around the eyes are a common complication caused by aging or due to genetics and sunlight. Fat injection can be used to remove this haze.
Liposuction for the ocular cavity and corrective blepharoplasty
One of the most critical advances in cosmetic facial surgery has been the injection of fat from outside the body into the affected areas. Fat injection in eyelid cosmetic surgery (blepharoplasty) is one of the applications of this method. In recent decades, various ways have been used to repair the skin, such as collagen, Restyling, Theodore, etc., which have had excellent results. The original purpose of these methods was to treat and eliminate skin wrinkles, but now we know that these methods can also be used to give volume to the skin. Research has shown that reducing the size of the face (fat, muscle, and bone) is the first cause of aging in people, which is called sagging face. These changes cause the skin to loosen, the face to become thinner, the dimples around the eyes, and the bony face in general. The fat injection method is an excellent way to improve this condition.
Factors influencing the success of the fat injection
The success rate of fat injection, also known as “fat retention,” depends on many factors, including the fat removal technique, how the fat is prepared for injection, and the part of the face where the lubricant is injected. Previous wounds or surgeries, the condition of the tissue in which the fat is injected, and the technique used to inject the fat.
For example, the fat injected under the eyes is better absorbed than other parts of the face because there is less mobility in this part.
For a good evaluation, these factors and how they affect removing and injecting fat under the eyebrows can be critically identified. If the fat injection is performed by a specialist surgeon, the fat non-uniformity in the part where the injection was made will occur less than in the past.
Newer methods are less likely to cause these side effects. Still, if fat injection under the eyebrows is not uniform or elsewhere, it can be treated with medication or surgery.
Experts consider fat injection a valuable method because it has had a tremendous impact on the results of their surgeries, especially in the case of blepharoplasty (eyelid beautification) in people with sunken eyes.
It can also be said that a fat injection is a valuable tool for primary blepharoplasty. Because in this operation, the removal of excess fat may cause dimples, which can be used as a fat injection technique to improve the condition.
Steps of fat extraction and injection
The abdomen, buttocks, thighs, and buttocks are natural areas for fat removal. The steps of fat removal are as follows: first, the desired site is disinfected and sterilized, and then, under local anesthesia and the use of special small cannulas, the site is perforated to remove and remove the fat. In the next step, centrifuging the fat, the extra parts are separated, and a purer fat is obtained.
90% of fat cells survive and maintain their normal function with proper removal. During the injection phase, the injection site should be sterilized and anesthetized, and the fat injection should be performed using special cannulas. However, it should be noted that injecting a small amount of fat in several steps will usually have better results than injecting a large amount of fat in one place. To achieve better results and more durability of this method, injecting fat in several sessions with four to six months intervals is better.
In this method, because the fat is taken from the patient’s own body and injected into his body, there is no possibility of allergic reactions in the gel injection method. Therefore, injecting fat into the back of the eyelid is a low-complication method for facial rejuvenation.
In addition to improving eyebrows, the fat injection has many applications in removing laughter lines, facial wrinkles, jawline, and lower eyes.
The main stages of fat injection:
- Use liposuction to remove fat
- Fat processing and separation
- Re-inject fat into the desired area.
Who should not have fat injections?
- Patients whose weight fluctuates and does not have definite stability. People are also planning to lose a lot of weight because losing or adding 20 pounds, or more may counteract the effects of fat injections. People who have had eye surgery and have scars make it difficult for their doctor to inject fat.
- People who are not in good general health.
If people do not have the right conditions for fat injection, they should never do this procedure alone. When they have problems in various fields, they should consult a doctor before any action that may cause problems. If they inject fat indifferently into their problems, it creates complications and issues that are only part of the damage, and people incur different costs to solve mutual problems.
Is gel injection for the back of the eyelid better or fat injection?
Most people think that fat injection is better than gel injection because they believe that fat injection is safer. After all, fat is removed from the body. Of course, there are several reasons for not injecting fat into the back of the eyelid.
- Liposuction requires surgery. This means that the fat must first be surgically removed and injected into the site with another surgery. Surgery is also needed to maintain the results of this treatment because if the injection is not correct and the result is not satisfactory, another operation must be performed to remove the injected fat.
- An important issue that we consider necessary to mention in moist skin and hair is that fat is absorbed very quickly by the body. 30 to 70% of fat may be absorbed after injection, so fat must be re-injected to maintain the desired volume.
- Fat needs blood supply, and if there is not enough blood in the area, there is a possibility of serious complications. For this reason, the injected fat must be removed surgically.
- Adipose tissue is usually not smooth. Therefore, its injection may cause small and large bumps under the skin.
These side effects do not occur with gel injections because surgery is not required to inject hyaluronic acid fillers or eliminate their impact.
Generally, injection varies from 30 to 120 minutes, depending on the number and volume of areas to be amplified.
Intensive care after surgery
There is swelling and bruising after surgery, and the pain is somewhat expected. In addition, Mipsken can be used to control any discomfort. Liposuction does not require significant improvement despite swelling and bruising.
Recovery time depends on the amount of initial liposuction and your personal opinion about being in public. However, it is best to minimize daily activities for a few days after surgery. Your doctor will give you care instructions, including information about the following:
- Medications (prescription and homeopathy)
- Head height
- Clean the cutting area
For a quick recovery, rest as much as possible and consider the following:
- Raise your head slowly (above the level of the heart) for at least 10 to 14 days after surgery, even while sleeping.
- Avoid aspirin-containing products for 14 days before and after surgery
- Lie on your back or side
- Avoid steam baths and saunas for at least six weeks or as long as your doctor allows
- Avoid exposure to sunlight until the bruises are wholly healed
- Avoid strenuous activities such as exercise and heavy work at home for at least 7 to 10 days
