dark greenish discoloration of the skin after fat transfer

These could be iron deposits after bruising where the iron is left behind. Sometimes, mild heat and massage can help this as well as exercise or increasing the lymphatic drainage in this area.

Sometimes, it can be due to prominent vessels that are residual after the procedure and the stimulation caused by the procedure post operatively. Or it could be that your Fat Transfer just elevated this area so that you can see it better.

What could be causing this is that your eye muscle is showing through your skin more given the thin skin in this area. The treatment is increasing the distance and adding layers between your eye muscles and the skin through fillers and more fat injections superficially between the skin and muscle. Also, CO2 resufacing can create an extra layer of collagen that can disguise the transparency of the skin that allows the deep color of the muscle to show through.

I refined an amazing volumizing procedure called “the YoungLift”.  This is an innovative technique that volumizes your face to bring out the younger and natural you without looking like you had something done.  This is not a facelift and requires no incisions.  Only pinpoint puncture sites are used and these heal imperceptibly.  The YoungLift can be done without general anesthesia and without drains, and large bandages.  You also have a lot less downtime and discomfort compared with traditional facelift procedures.  Dr Young employs the very best techniques from around the world into one volumizing procedure and he uses his internationally acclaimed understanding of facial beauty to create the youthful volume you once had.

Dr Young is located in Bellevue near Seattle, Washington
