Question

I have lost weight and now I have circles around my lower eyes plus bumps at each corner (fat pads I think) will putting weight back on get rid of them I never had them four months ago. I'm 45 and just had a baby, I look awful or would I need surgery?

Answer

In terms of the circles under the eyes, it is possible to use either fat transfer or injectable filler treatment to create an improvement. The transfer is more versatile but is a surgical intervention.

The volume that you describe further down and lateral is, I believe, malar oedema, and represents water accumulation in the tissues rather than fat. As such, there is no optimum treatment for it, but among the options improvement there is the possibility to use at that transfer that highlights the volume of the cheekbones and encompasses some of the irregularities in the area.

It is possible to use a consultation with 3-D photography and simulation of different treatment plans to allow you to understand options and decide regarding your preferred approach.
