Doctor Answers (4)
Rejuvenation of the Lower Lid
Dark Circles ("tear trough deformity")- Many times dark circles are due to shadowing in the lower lid. This shadowing is caused by volume loss in the lower lid. This can be corrected non-surgically with hyaluronic acid filler injections, such as restylane preferably using a microcannula to prevent excess bruising.
Eye Bags- The appearance of under eye bags is usually caused by excess fat bulging from around the eye. This is typically treated with blepharoplasty surgery.
Wrinkles- Fine wrinkles in the lower lid region are best treated with fractionated CO2 laser resurfacing with resurfaces the fine wrinkles and also provides a mild degree of skin tightening.

Following the advice of anyone who would presume to tell you what to do without seeing photos and without taking a full medical history, examining you, feeling and assessing your tissue tone, discussing your desired outcome and fully informing you about the pros and cons of each option would not be in your best interest. Find a plastic surgeon that you are comfortable with and one that you trust and listen to his or her advice. The surgeon should be certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and ideally a member of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS). You should discuss your concerns with that surgeon in person.
