As we age, we lose volume in our faces. The lower eye lid area and cheek are among the first areas to show this volume loss. It appears as a lower eye lid hollow. The loss of volumes exposes the lower eye lid fat compartments which appear as "bags".
Over the past few years our philosophy of treating the area has changed from removing fat bags, to preserving, and augmenting the hollow area with fillers. The best temporary filler to restore lost volume in this most delicate and unforgiving area is Restylane. The best permanent filler is the patient's own fat (transferred from the abdomen).
It is an area that should be treated only by physician's well trained, experienced, and with knowledge of the intricate anatomy of the lower eye lid area.
By re-inflating the hollow areas, the cheek and eye lid bags are blended into a youthful contour.
The results with Restylane last from 1 to 1 1/2 year. There is some stimulation of new collagen formation so that even when the product is gone, the hollow is not as deep as before your treatment.
Good luck and be well.
