Under eye area dark circle treatment
Treatment of tear troughs and hollow eyes
In my opinion, the best treatment would be with a skin filler such as Restylane. These fillers will usually hold up for 1-2 years and can then be repeated or touched up as needed. Would not use a tear trough implant -- ever!! In fact, there is no operation that would work for you for this particular problem.
You will need an expert injector because the skin and other tissues are thin in this area.
One nice and reassuring point: there is an antidote for Restylane (and any other hyaluronic acid filler) -- so if you don't like it, it can be neutralized.
Do your research carefully and find a board certified plastic surgeon who is skilled at these injections.
