Treatment for Under Eye Bags: Fat Injections vs. Fillers Beverly Hills, CA

Losing fat under your eyes makes your skin loose and forms saggy tissues that stay with you all day long. If you’re tired of people telling you that you look tired, then you may want to consider a treatment for under eye bags.

What Are Under Eye Fat Injections?

During this procedure, our Beverly Hills plastic surgeon will liposuction (remove) a small amount of fat from your stomach, hip, or thigh. Once the fat is extracted, using a thin tube (cannula), he will inject it deep under the skin and muscles around the eye and cheek area.

What Are Fillers?

For under eye dermal fillers, Dr. Parsa likes to use hydraulic acid (HA) products like Restylane and Belotero. After numbing the area with a cream, he will gently inject the substance under the skin to make the area look plump.

Fat Injections vs. Fillers

While either one of these procedures will improve the appearance of your under eye bags, there are some differences between the two.

● Fat transfers last longer than fillers
● Fat is a natural substance found in your body
● Fat feels softer than fillers
● It’s possible for your body to absorb some of the fat, meaning you may need a second treatment
● Fillers require hardly any downtime while the recovery for fat injections is about 1-2 weeks
● Fat injections cost more than fillers

Words cannot express how thankful and appreciative I am to have found you. I am deeply grateful for you, for your generosity and caring nature as pertaining to my medical condition. As you know, I was apprehensive about having further surgery, but you are and have been reassuring and confident in the type of procedure you would perform in order to fix my eyelid from the beginning. The fact that you are not pushy and gave me the time and space to make the decision on my own allowed me to prepare myself mentally and emotionally, that really made a difference. Besides from that, your continuous generosity made me confident that you were the right doctor for the task at hand. You will never know how appreciative I am of that. I would also like to let you know how pleased I am with the results of the surgery. I have not felt this comfortable in years. My parents are also very grateful since this was my 14th surgery. You have a true gift. Thank you again for your patience, time, concern, and overall care. I pray that God continues to give you strength to help people who truly need life-changing medical procedures.

Dr. Parsa is an amazing doctor. Warm and very caring. I had my eyes done a couple years ago and I couldn't be happier. Dr. Parsa likes to take the conservative approach which I greatly appreciate in a doctor when it comes to cosmetic surgery. I also go to Dr. Parsa for Botox and he always knows just the right amount. The staff in Dr. Parsa's office are all terrific!
