Malar Pouch

Malar Pockets surgery

dr hayot’s technique

« An incision is made using a laser scalpel which is neatly hidden along the lash line. I then perform a sub-muscular lifting to tighten and fasten the excess muscle. ». I combine this technique with cheekbone lipostructure. This technique consists of re-injecting my patient’s fat, which has been extracted beforehand from the knee or the abdomen, to naturally improve the volume of the cheekbones.»

Advantages

  • Malar lifting treats orbicularis muscle slackening and, at the same time, the melting fat.
  • Natural tightening of the muscle.
  • The result of the micro-lipostructure is permanent.
  • Invisible scar, hidden along the ciliary edge.

Practical information

  • Anaesthetic : potentiated local (neuroleptanalgesy)
  • Length of the procedure : around an hour and a half
  • Hospitalization : ambulatory
  • Downtime : a dozen days

malar pouch surgery and cheekbone lipostructure

The malar pouch is located on the upper part of the cheekbone on the malar bone. It is not a pocket of fat but a ptosis of the orbicularis muscle. This slackening leads to a sort of double under-eye circle which worsens the appearance of tiredness....  Read more

There are multiple and often mixed causes to why a malar pouch forms: it may be due to an inflammatory oedema combined with a muscular swag (sort of excess of the orbicularis muscle) and to fat melting at tear trough level.
The surgical solution is to perform sub-muscular lifting combined with malar lipostructure.Read less
