To treat tear trough deformities in young patients, transconjunctival orbital fat repositioning has been widely used. Although internal fixation of transposed fat enables more secure and stable fixation than the externalized percutaneous suture method, the latter is used more commonly because of the narrow operation field and consequent technical difficulty of the internal fixation method. We describe a novel technique using a newly devised needle (Chang's needle) that facilitates internal fixation of transposed fat pedicles.
