Tear Trough Correction
The tear troughs under the eyes can become pronounced, especially with aging. The half-circle depressions spanning from the inner corner of the eye can become dark circles with under-eye bags. Deep tear troughs can create an older, tired appearance. At Los Angeles Plastic Surgery in Beverly Hills, Dr. John Anastasatos offers tear trough correction with surgical and non-surgical options to rejuvenate the undereye area.
In some cases, surgery is not required for a quick tear trough correction. A slight indent of the tear trough without sagging or bags under the eyes can be addressed with facial filler injections. The right dermal filler can add volume in the tear trough, smoothing the undereye area and removing dark circles. However, dermal fillers are only a temporary solution, and the treatment will need to be repeated to sustain results.
Blepharoplasty for Tear Troughs
When tear troughs are deep and there is also fat loss or sagging, surgical tear trough correction is the best solution. Lower eyelid blepharoplasty can be used to remove excess fat or skin that is causing eye bags or dark circles under the eyes. Repositioning the tissue under the eyes can smooth the tear troughs. In some cases, fat transfer may be needed to fill in hollows under the eyes. The desired result is a smooth transition between the undereye area and the upper cheek, rejuvenating the eyes and face.
Dark circles, eye bags and hollows under the eyes caused by deepened tear troughs can make you look tired and years older than you are.
