Under Eye Circles After Tooth Extraction

Hi, since i had a wisdom teeth extractions (+5 months) i have big circles under the eyes, and my face look thinner. The operation was good and there was no problem after it. Is there a link between those things?

Face thinner for sure.

Removing the wisdom teeth will definitely make the face look thinner.  Models reportedly have the molar extracted for this very reason.  However, it is less likely (but not impossible) that this change will make your dark circle worse.  A detailed analysis of photographs would be needed to answer this question.  Ultimately, since perception, is so subjective, that it is your interpretation that is important.
