Lower Eye Fat removal and Fat Graft (Re-draping)?
Hello. I saw a plastic surgeon about eye bags. He recommended a transconjunctival blepharoplasty with fat graft or “re-draping” as he often said. He said he would cut a ligament and graft some of the fat down into the eye trough area to a bone somewhere around there. He said just removing some fat would not completely help the eye trough. Can you look at my pics and give your opinion as well? And if you agree, how good have your results been with that procedure? I want to do it but this is my first time.
Thank you for your question. Asking if the procedure that your doctor recommends is advisable is likely to generate a whole lot of answers and a lot of conflicting opinions. Essentially, in principle, I can tell you that as a specialist, that the concept of what the doctor wants to do for you is certainly reasonable and is within the standard of care of helping people with under eye bags.
Something that you have to appreciate that a lot of people don’t fully understand is that cosmetic surgery is very much an art. And when there is controversy, whether it’s in eyelid surgery or facelifting surgery where people flock to one doctor because they do the deep-plane technique, or others tighten the muscle a certain way. It’s not the actual name of the procedure that matters, but how it’s executed, when it’s executed, and so these are things that are extremely variable between surgeons. I’ve trained many doctors, and I can tell you that you can show another surgeon how to do something, but they are going to do it their own way. It doesn’t make them right, it doesn’t make them wrong, what really matters are the results.
So overall, the procedure that is being considered for you is reasonable. However, there are always things to be prepared for, and not every surgery goes perfectly. So as much as you can take a survey of recommendations, and some may say that procedure doesn’t work, or only works part of the time, and others will say absolutely, yes go that way. If you feel that your surgeon is capable of doing the work, and has before and after pictures which you feel comfortable and confident with, then the decision is yours. And whatever you do, just be aware that even in the best of hands, every surgery can have some potential, unforeseen issues. It is not necessarily just the technique. Patients come to me from all over the world with these concerns and problems. Although some of them could have been avoided, a lot of times those things are not necessarily just the result of poor surgical technique, but rather the combination of circumstances and healing. So based on this I’d like you to maybe get an additional opinion and be confident on your choice. So thank you for your question and I hope that was helpful.
