What is a Fat Transposition Procedure? How does it work for a Lower Blepharoplasty?
Fat Transposition during a Blepharoplasty procedure is a surgical technique for rejuvenating the eyelids.
What’s involved in Orbital Fat Repositioning or Fat Transposition of Lower Eyelids:
Fat transposition involves releasing some adipose (fat) tissue from the patient’s lower eyelid(s) and gently moving or re-positioning it to the area to be treated.
For which patients is Orbital Fat Transportation potentially effective?
- This procedure may suit men or women who have dark circles or chronic puffiness under their eyes (related to fat pockets)
- Fat Transportation may also be effective for people with excess fat in their eyelid area, particularly the lower lid
- It is ideally performed by a highly skilled Specialist Surgeon for attaining best results and avoiding potential complications
