ANY SOLUTIONS FOR EYE BAGS WITH PILLOW LIKE PUFFS?

Q:

PROBLEMS WITH EYE RIDGES AND BAGS UNDER EYES SINCE VAMPIRE FACE LIFT. A MONTH AGO, WAITING HAS DONE NOTHING AT ALL. MY EYES ARE EXHAUSTED FROM THE SAG OF THE WEIGHT OF THE PILLOWS UNDER THEM.

A:

First and foremost these procedures just any procedure should be performed by those certified to do the procedure.  If in fact you have returned to the provider who performed the procedure and you are not satisfied then it is your prerogative to obtain a second opinion.  Members of ASAPS would be an excellent choice. 

A:

The "Vampire Facelift" is nothing more than a fat grafting that has been fortified to try and improve the result. The only good data is that it still acts like other fat grafts. In such, one month is too short a time to wait. It usually takes at least four months before you can tell the eventual results. In the mean time, massage of the area can help. If, however, it is obvious that there is fat in the wrong place, return to the person who did the procedure or a plastic surgeon experienced in facial rejuvenation.
