ERASING UNDER EYE BAGS

Stem Cell Lift to Improve Eye Area

By: Nathan Newman, MD

 Restoring Youth To Your Eyes

One of the first areas to show signs of aging is the under eyes.  Our eyes are the focus of our face. As we age our eyebrows droop, our eyelids wrinkle and fall, and we develop “bags” and dark circles under our eyes. These changes result in an undesirably tired, aged and sad look. Fortunately, advances in medicine and cosmetic surgery can reverse much of this aged look with little to no down time, with minimal discomfort, without scars, without the need for general anesthesia and with minimal risk.

What Causes Under Eye Bags?

The sagging of the eyebrows, upper eyelids are from a combination of the natural aging process and our lifestyle. As we age, the fat in our face starts to shrink and reduce in volume.  The cheek fat under the eyes also deflates and the veins become visible through the thin skin giving us the appearance of dark circles. As a result of this volume loss in the cheeks, the support fat that the eyeball sits upon may also become visible and appear to bulge as bags under the eyes giving a tired and aged look.

Under Eye Rejuvenation with The Stem Cell Lift®

The most natural and logical way to correct the undesired effects of volume loss due to fat shrinkage and deflation is to replace the volume with what was there before, with fat. Under local anesthesia, the fat can be taken from any part of our body and injected into other areas (eyes, face, nose, hands, calves, buttocks, etc.) to sculpt the area and to fill it and restore volume. The fat contains the most concentration of adult tissue stem cells of any organ in the body.  These mesenchymal stem cells have tremendous regenerative and rejuvenating capacities and are essential in correcting and maintaining the needed volume under the eyes.  The Stem Cell Lift® procedure entails removing fat from the body using mini liposuction techniques; separating, concentrating and activating the stem cells found in the collected fat and preparing them for injection into the under eye and cheek areas.  The stem cell rich fat restores the youthful volume, corrects the under eye bags and becomes part of its surrounding tissues.  The Stem Cell Lift® gives a scar free and natural appearing look with long term benefits and with minimal risk.
