Evolution of the Lower Lid Surgery VI

The picture above shows a patient with eyebags and prominent tear troughs.  
If only the fat is removed, the tear troughs can become accentuated
and give the eyes a hollow look. The patient below had had
transconjunctival (behind the eyelids) fat removal
and has a hollow look and prominent tear troughs.
 
 
The previous post mentioned the use of fillers to treat eyebags and tear troughs. However, the procedure is not permanent and would not be suitable for all patients. Some patients are unhappy after the injection because the lower eyelids will appear more swollen than before even though the unevenness is smoothed out.
 
For patients with eyebags and tear troughs who wish to have more lasting results, fat repositioning over the tear trough can achieve good results. In this procedure, the fat is only minimally removed and the remaining is sutured over the tear troughs.

  1. Dr.NIRDOSH says 'Tear Trough is a fabulous treatment which can vanish bags and darkness and restore lost volumization that occurs with aging. It's a common problematic area for women, as some days eyes look more puffy and saggy than others. Add late nights into the mix and you have under eyes areas that are rapidly declining. My tear trough treatment can fix this in less than 20 minutes with instantly visible results. Women who have not had this treatment should come to see us on Harley Street as they are really missing out on regaining beautiful eyes.continue reading this post.and get more information.
