Fat injections complications resolved through a blepharoplasty

This particular person had lumps from Fat Transfer to the lower eyelid and upper cheek. This is a question that I answered for someone who had a procedure by another physician.

Lumps and Bumps can happen without almost anything that you do when you manipulate the tissues. When they are around the eyes, it’s pretty hard to mask their appearance. I can appreciate the concerns. There are many things that can be done to help this.

First, steroid injections can help by causing some of the fat to be dissolved by the body through the action of the steroids. There are risks with the use of steroids so you should be aware of these before undergoing these injections. This course may take several injections, and it may take a couple of months for the steroids to fully work.

The other option is to actually make an incision and take the fat out.

The third option is to actually carry out micro liposuction to take the fat away. Going to someone with a lot of experience with fat grafting can help avoid some of these issues, but even the best will have some lumps.

Fat grafting is a very complicated process for the surgeon and there a lot of steps that go into this procedure. Each step can affect the survival of the fat which can lead to lumps because some cells survive and some cells don’t. The more reliable the process you have the better chance you will get even survival of the fat and hence a better result. Its all in the technique!

The YoungLift is a technique that I refined which incorporates a persons own tissue to volumize the whole face for the most natural results for a younger look.
