Eyelid surgery ranks among the 3 top surgical procedures requested by men and women.
In the lower eyelid patients usually complain of the “bags” which confer to their faces the look of being tired and premature aging.
Several studies support the hypothesis that age and fatigue judgments are related to the eye region.
In the young patients population there are alternatives to improve the so called “lower lids bags” without surgery.
The following examples show patients in which a surgical or a filler approach was performed in order to improve the lower lid area.
The filler of choice for the eye area is hyaluronic acid (Restylane or Juvederm). Procedure is completed at the office using anesthesia in cream applied to the specific area to be treated.
In order to determine if you are a better candidate for filler than surgery, you should be evaluated by an experienced surgeon in both procedures.
