Under eye dark circle correction, sometimes known as periorbital filling, reduces the appearance of hollows or dark circles under the eyes. Board-certified dermatologist and cosmetic surgeon Dr. Lisa Donofrio utilizes a variety of methods to achieve a patient’s desired outcome.
Dermal fillers, a patient’s own fat as well as a specialized laser are all methods for restoring a rested and rejuvenated look to the eyes. Using the patient’s own fat for periorbital filling is one of Dr. Donofrio’s specialties and yields long-lasting results. Dermal fillers can also achieve beautiful, though temporary, results.
Frequently Asked Questions about Under Eye Dark Circle Correction in New Haven, CT
What does it mean to “use my own fat”?
The fat transfer procedure involves a minimally invasive removal of unwanted fat from the body. This fat is then purified extensively and injected into the desired locations around the eyes. The fat harvest and first transfer take place on the same day and typically takes under two hours.
How long does the under eye circle correction procedure take?
This varies from patient to patient depending upon the corrective method used as well as a patient’s desired outcome.
When will I see my results following dark circle correction or periorbital filling?
This varies from patient to patient. While those utilizing dermal fillers can notice improvement almost immediately, those undergoing periorbital fat transfer will typically notice improvement in the days following their procedure.
