Placing pressure in the lower eyelids after fat injections and the effect on survival?

First of all, I want to tell you that I’m sorry that you felt mistreated. Sometimes, doctors are very busy and they might come across that way when really they have a lot on their mind. A good bedside manner really can make a difference though.

This was a question I answered for someone who had a Fat Transfer procedure to her lower eyelid and wondering about her doctor applying pressure to her lower eyelid.  This was a procedure that was done by another doctor.

In terms of the pressure, applying this judiciously can help some swelling that may be related to the manipulation caused by the procedure. Another word for this is inflammatory edema. It shouldn’t really affect the way the fat will be shaped unless a lot of pressure is applied in a forceful way that could affect the fat’s survival during the crucial period of about a month after your procedure.

The fat placed really should be formed by the technique of laying the fat into layers and by the amount placed. Each fat cell or group of cells should have their own specific location to acquire their own blood supply. This is the best way to ensure that the fat will survive.

Consulting a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon would be something that I would recommend. We specialize in the face and are highly qualified to help you with this.

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
