I had fat transfer to the whole face, including the temples and now my small eyes look even smaller. Should I consider having fat taken back out of the temples to adjust the ratios? It seems to be an area sensitive to surgery.Friday, November 11th, 2011
Unfortunately once fat has been placed it is extremely difficult to try to remove. Sometimes too much volume in the temples and around the eyes can make the eyes seem smaller and more deep set. At times that is desirable especially for patients with bulging eyes or prominent eyes.
At times steroids or 5-FU can be injected judiciously to help reduce some of the fat volume but it is difficult and not very predictable. That is why it is always safer to underfill when it comes to fat or even fillers for that matter. It is always easier to put more in than to remove what's there.
