The Treatment of Dark Circles by Lipofilling (fat transfer)

Dark circles are a common problem when it comes to the eye contour. In many cases, dark circles can be hereditary and there is no specific timeline or age at which they can appear. Permanent dark circles can make a patient appear tired even if they are in full health and have had an abundance of sleep.

Regardless of your age and whether you have red, blue or violet dark circles, this common problem can be corrected using regenerative medicine or fat injections.

Visible dark circles and discolouration under the eyes can be due to the thinness and transparency of the skin under the eye area. We can make the dark circles disappear by injecting the area with fat cells taken from fat harvested from the patient’s body either from the stomach or the knee. Known as Nano-lipostructure, the transparency effect disappears because the fat cells create a layer of protection between the thin skin of the eyelid area and the capillaries that are located just beneath. The colouration under the eyes are corrected and the hollowness fades away.

In order to obtain the best results, Dr. Hayot works with a very thin cannula to perform his latest lipofilling procedures.

If there is a significant decrease in fat, the eye will naturally appear hollow. A technique called Micro-lipostructure is then performed to fill in the wrinkles around the eyes using a more intensive version of fat transfer.

Each patient’s needs is different; therefore, each case may require a different approach. An initial consultation with Dr Hayot will help him to understand your personal goals and concerns. Dr Hayot’s approach will be tailored to the patient’s requirements in order to assure the best result with the minimum risk.

A word from our Medical Director…

Many of my patients are concerned about their dark circles and this is one of the most difficult problems to treat. Now, with the advanced technique of Nanolipo and regenerative medicine we can give patients the most modern, effective and safe technique.

  • The ONLY treatment that treats dark circle permanently
  • The procedure is quick, and short post-surgery downtime
  • The fat stem cells injected delay signs of ageing around the eye area
  • Results are natural and discrete.


We strongly recommend to take 5 to 7 days off work upon the patients specificities and her/his lifestyle. Bruises and oedema at the point of injections will be visible but those side effects should disappear a few days after the surgery.

The results will reach their full potential 3 months after the procedure.
