Background : A number of factors can cause dark circles around the eyes including excessive pigmentation, thin and translucent lower eyelid skin overlying the orbicularis oculi muscle, and shadowing due to skin laxity and tear trough. Autologous fat graft is an effective method for the treatment of lower lid dark circles, but irregularities caused by leaving visible lumps of the fat can occur. Tonnard et al. suggested 'nanofat' grafting and introduced its characteristics and clinical applications. The authors used their nanofat grafting to correct lower eyelid dark circles. Methods : Nanofat grafting was performed in 19 patients for dark lower eyelids. The grafts were injected into subdermal layer using blunt cannula. Microfat grafting with nasojugal fold was performed to all the patients. Among them, 18 patients received transconjunctival fat removal at the same time. Results : All the patients showed much improvement from preoperative dark coloration. There were no visible lumps of fat, contour irregularities, or fat necrosis. Postoperative edema and ecchymosis were minimal. Conclusions : Nanofat grafting methods provide a good alternative for correcting dark circles by augmenting thin skin with lower complications. This simple, cost effective procedure is suitable for correction of dark circles and various skin rejuvenation purposes.
