What Is the Most Safe and Effective Way to Remove Fat Pads from the Lower Eyelids?

Transconjunctival lower eyelid blepharoplasty is 100% the way to go, especially for a young person who has genetic (versus age-related) orbital fat pseudoherniation. I recommend this procedure for patients with lower eyelid ‘fat bags’ related to aging, as well. There are no visible scars and the results are excellent in experienced hands. While injectables are an effective means to recontour and smooth the transition between the lower eyelids and the cheek, they are temporary. Mesotherapy is not FDA-approved and has no U.S. studies to evaluate safety or efficacy; do not take a chance on this treatment around your eyes!
