Do y'all think fat graft or fillers are better for the under eye area with hollowness? I know there are different kinds of fillers but both of them are not permanent but I've read about someone who said it lasted up to a year and she got small blue circles? under her eyes and they're still there after 6 years but fat graft doesn't cause any of that as far as I know.

Also since people keep saying getting fat grafts 2-3 times make it sorta permanent so I need opinions on these two and which is better since the under eye area is super delicated and thin.

I haven't tried fillers, but I did have fat grafting done under my eyes a little over a year ago. It came out lumpy under my left eye and even though all the fat eventually dissapeared (thankfully), I looked really weird for months. It also made my already thin under eye skin even more sensitive.

Maybe I was just unlucky, but I still would not recommend fat grafting under the eyes or fat grafting at all for that matter.

I think filler might be safer since if something goes wrong you can get it dissolved. Just do your research and go to someone reputable with lots of experience.

I heard that better have fat injection under eyes than filler but i think it'd be different from individual skin condition.

Thanks a lot! Have you had any consultation there or did fat grafting ? I am really keen in facial fat grafting now...
No i did not. I only mentioned from what I heard from others, there are posts around here that talk about it. Do your research, it really is so important if you're going to do a drastic decision like having surgery.
