Say Goodbye to the Dark Side: How to Combat Dark Circles

Fat Transfer Surgery CA | Bay Area Just like with any condition, there are a variety of ways to treat dark circles under your eyes including basic ones like concealer and surgical ones like a fat transfer. This article will discuss a few of the ways that we can treat your dark circles. Read on to learn more.


Concealer is the fastest and easiest way that we can get rid of dark circles under your eyes. Available in a sponge applicator, gel tube, or a wand, concealer can help you find temporary relief from your circles. When shopping for a concealer, however, make sure to choose a color that is one shade lighter than your natural skin— this will give you more coverage.


Another way that we at Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center can help you find temporary relief from your dark circles is to give you fillers. Containing ingredients like hyaluronic acid, fillers like Restylane and Juvederm can be injected into the skin under your eyes to add more volume and texture— getting rid of circles in the process.

Fat Transfer

Wouldn’t it be great if you could remove fat from one part of your body and inject it into your face? With a fat transfer surgery, that small dream can become a reality. By removing fat from areas of your body like your abdomen, upper thighs, upper arms, and buttocks, our doctors can then reinject that fat into the skin under your eyes.

If you are sick and tired of looking sick and tired because of your dark circles, consider trying the above options. To learn more about how we can help you get rid of your dark circles, contact Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center and schedule an appointment with our office!

The surprising ways that fat can improve your appearance

Body Contouring | Bay Area Laser Surgery CenterThe idea is the genius: extracting fat from areas where it’s not wanted, such as the abdomen and thighs, and transferring it to areas where it can improve your appearance, such as the:

  • Buttocks
  • Breasts
  • Face
  • Hands

Fat transfer isn’t just an idea, but a reality. Fat cells can be removed from unwanted areas and re-injected beneath the skin in many areas with desirable outcomes. Where could your fat do the best work for your appearance?

Your hands

Many patients are unhappy with their hands for various reasons, including:

  • Wrinkles
  • Boniness
  • Large veins
  • Large tendons
  • Grooves
  • Sunspots

Your hands can look younger using dermal fillers and laser treatments, but the longer lasting method for rejuvenating them can be fat transfer, which can last for years.

Your face

Facial fillers such as Restylane and Juvederm are popular and effective products for rejuvenating the face and giving you back a more youthful appearance. Fat transfer can also be used to improve the appearance of practically every part of the face and can have longer lasting results. Fat transfer can be used to improve:

  • Sunken areas beneath the eyes
  • Deep wrinkles next to the mouth (laugh lines)
  • Forehead creases
  • Sunken cheeks
  • Chin profile

Your lips

Injectable facial fillers can be used to augment the lips, improving and even changing their shape. Fat from other areas of your body can also be used, worked into the upper and lower lips to plump them up in a natural way that can be sustainable.

Your buttocks

Women who wish to achieve a rounder more defined buttocks can choose to have implants, and many are choosing the Brazilian Butt Lift, which uses fat injections to give a shapelier rear end.

Your breasts

Fat grafting to enlarge the breasts can be done for cosmetic improvement as well as to improve appearance following a mastectomy, breast implant problems or other breast issues related to symmetry and appearance. Fat transfer can produce attractive and natural-looking augmentation results.

The buttocks take front and center

The American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS) recently highlighted a trend in plastic surgery that you may (or may not) find surprising: In the past year, there was close to 100% growth in butt augmentation procedures.

The butt just got bigger

butt augmentation |bay area caA butt with oomph is the one people seem too want these days. Long gone, it seems, are the days when women wanted tiny rear ends, more like a guy’s. Vogue magazine even declared this “the Era of the Booty,” and women (and men) in their 20s especially, are loving the look of females with curvier backsides. And they’re turning to surgery to get them.

Putting fat you don’t want where you do

Popularly called the Brazilian butt lift, it’s an augmentation procedure that involves taking fat from the stomach or thighs and injecting it into the buttocks. As with all surgery, butt augmentation is not without its risks. The Brazilian butt lift is quite popular because it can offer good results and minimal complications.

Here’s what the BBL is known for, specifically:

  • It can increase fullness
  • It can increase roundness
  • It can increase the projection of your buttocks

The procedure can also improve your figure’s overall the balance.

A move forward that comes from behind

Many patients report feeling more confident and better about their whole body after their augmentation procedure. After many years of not liking your shape, may find that the procedure truly enhances your self-image and confidence. And results are immediately visible and long lasting.

An important reminder about fat

With any type of fat transfer surgery, you have to remember that wanted fat behaves just like unwanted fat in your body. So if you gain weight, the shape of your rear end can change and grow. Likewise, if you lose weight, you can lose some of the volume provided by the fat transfer as the fat shrinks. And your body will reabsorb some of the transferred fat.

There actually is something really great about fat

At the Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery Center, we are used to hearing our patients express concerns about areas of their bodies where they notice “fat.” Whether a result of childbirth or just plain daily living, fat does have a way of depositing itself in unwanted places. And sometimes it sticks there, despite healthy diet and exercise. So “fat” is a word that most of our patients deliver without a smile on their faces.

But Dr. Serebrakian can tell you about some ways that fat doesn’t need to be a negative word – and that’s when it comes to his fat transfer surgery procedures.

Fat transfer surgery can make “fat” a happy word. It involves extracting fat cells from your body – abdomen, inner thighs, inner knees or elsewhere – and re-injecting those fat cells somewhere they’re actually needed and wanted. That could be your cheeks, hands or even breasts.

We would love to talk to you about fat in a way that will make you realize that it can be a great thing. Simply schedule a consultation at Bay Area Laser Cosmetic Surgery by calling either one of our offices:
Pinole (East Bay) Office (510) 724-8282
Larkspur (North Bay) Office (415) 461-5755

For now, here are a few of the fat transfer procedures we offer that could be right for you.

Fat transfer to your breasts
You may choose this procedure for cosmetic reasons or to correct the results of deformities caused by mastectomy or breast implant collapse.

Fat transfer to your hands
We offer cosmetic procedures for making your hands look younger with some of the same fillers we use on the face. But longer lasting results seem to be achieved when we instead inject fat into the hands.

Fat transfer to your face
The face really lends itself to the benefits that can be achieved when we use fat for more aesthetic purposes. Our patients use their own fat to plump up their lips, laugh lines, forehead creases, under eyes and cheeks.

What can we do with your fat? Call us to find out. The possibilities could put a smile on your face.
