Under Eye Fat Removal & Repositioning

What is Under Eye Fat Repositioning?

Answer's Under Eye Fat Repositioning Surgery is designed to remove the lacrimal groove and improve the dullness of the eyes. The lacrimal groove is removed by opening the bulging area under the eyes and relocating fats. The incisions are made on the inner corner under the eyes. So, scars are not visible and recover is quick. Additionally, Under Eye Fat Repositioning Surgery is very effective to overcome dark circles because repositioning fats creates a clear shape under the eyes.

At Answer Plastic Surgery, Dr. Choi customizes this procedure for each individual. So, you will achieve the most suitable shape for your own eyes. The clinic medical team analyzes the thickness and the deflection of the fats under the eyes and performs personalized surgery. The operation takes approximately 30 minutes. Even if you are a very busy lifestyle, you can easily get this operation.

We recommended this procedure, if you...

  • Have serious dark circles
  • Have eye bags or excessive fat under the eyes
  • Look dull or sickly due to dark circles
  • Cannot hide your dark circles well with concealer

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What is the difference between Under Eye Fat Repositioning surgery and Under Eye Fat Removal surgery?

A: Under Eye Fat Removal is a relatively simple operation to remove fats out of the fat pocket which are creating eye bags. Under Eye Fat Repositioning surgery is a relatively different operation, to separate the ligaments in the lacrimal groove and place the fat pockets between them, filling in any sunken spaces.

Q: In what cases is it necessary to remove fats from under the eye?

A: If you do not have a large lacrimal groove but your fat pocket bulges toward your skin under the eyes, it can be improved by removing some of the fats under your eyes.

However, if you remove the fat under your eyes even if you have a lot of lacrimal grooves, it may look fine in the beginning, but it can become more hollow over time.

Q: Will this procedure relapse over time?

A: No. The procedure ensures that the area under eyes is evenly spread out, under the cornea, thus preventing recurrence.

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Will I have noticeable scarring after Alar Reduction? 

Generally, people do get scars around the mouth and nose after the operation. However, at Answer Plastic surgery, we use our ultra-fine equipment when suturing to minimize the scars. Over time, the scar will become unnoticeable.

 

Q: When do people get Nostril Reduction?

When people do not have enough alar tissue cells, it is difficult to have an alar base surgery. In this case, those who have large nostrils often choose to reduce their nostrils.

Q: In which cases is alar lifting recommended?

Alar lifting is recommended for those whose have droopy alars. When the alars are sagging compared to the nasal column (the section between the nostrils), nostrils seem to be exposed. By lifting the alars, the amount of exposure can be reduced.
