Hello Chant, thank you for the question.

Certain plastic surgeons in the US are avoiding the use of fat around the eye area in favor of dermal fillers. The concern in this area is that the skin is relatively thin and when one considers the down time together with the graft not taking one may choose alternative options. So, my apologies for the wording of my previous answer.
